I have been using synthetic reeds since 1974, when I played in the One O'Clock Band at North Texas. I have tried Bari, Fibrecane, Fibracell, and the Dieter Hahn reeds. I am currently using the Legeres on tenor, alto, and soprano Saxes. I find these reeds superior to all previous reeds I've tried in terms of consistency, response, timbre flexibility, and durability. I would highly recommend these reeds, especially for beginners who need the consistency aspect of these reeds.
I was introduced to Legere reeds by David Caldwell in Canada, and was immediately impressed. My original intent was to use the Legere reeds for practice sessions and continue usind regular cane reeds for gigs. However, I now find myself preferentially playing the studio cut on both alto and tenor.
The interesting thing about these reeds is that they play well on my all my various mouthpieces, such as a very old Dukof, old Otto Link, copper Sugal, old Berg Larsen, New York Meyer, et al. They do respond a little differently to a regular cane reed, but one quikly gets used to that aspect of the reed.
The concept of 1/4 strength increments is absolutely perfect, because it is essential to find the correct strength for the setup oneis using. For instance, depending on the mouthpiece, I use either a strength 2.0, 2.25, or 2.5. I now strongly recommend the Legere reeds to anyone that will listen.
I first got a Legere reed for my soprano. After 2 years I am still using the SAME reed! When I use another reed, my friends comment that my sound isn't as good. I've started using them on my other horns with the same results. Allow a couple of days to get used to it, after that you won't be sorry.
You're probably like me, in that you'll find 4 solid playing reeds in a box for $25. I have been playing funk in a traveling band and have found that 1 reed MIGHT last me 2 rehearsals and a 1 gig! This is unacceptable for hard players. I have played a 2 3/4 Legere Studio Tenor reed on my DG SuperKing R&B for the last 2 months and I?ve got to tell you, you can't beat the longevity. I did not exaggerate when I said that I was getting 1 show our of traditional cane jazz-cut reeds. I have already saved almost $90 in 2 months by using Legere. I?m not as fond of these for studio work as a solo instrument, for that I remain loyal to cane. Section work, however, these will project very well and give you the ability to balance evenly throughout the session. As far as live work- there are few equals for the working musician. I needed to be able to be consistent with my reeds, while having one that was not as brittle as conventional cane in both the structural integrity and in solidity of the reed heart. Not only do these have that, but these reeds will speak for players of any genre. But as a side note, they are a bit too abrasive for folk-rock!
The fine details:
No- these do not have the exact same sound as cane. Wood is able to produce a smoother edge (even in jazz playing), whereas synthetic is a bit ?buzzy?. But lets face it- if you?re a legit player, chances are you?re processing your sound through a system. As long as the mic is on, add some reverb and no one will be the wiser.
No- these do not feel like cane. But after 30 minutes you forget all about the difference in feel and enjoy your show.
Yes- these are worth the price for one.
Yes- They?re still somewhat delicate, but if you?re not using power tools nearby, you?ll be able to get months of use out of one reed.
Stop getting 4 out of 10 solid playing reeds. Synthetics are consistent and won?t splinter your lips when you?re break-dancing during your next live solo!!!
I have used on tenor (#2 on Ottolink 7* metal) for 2 years now - I play in often drafty conditions where cane reeds dry out. I have not heard good things about artificial reeds over the years so would not have tried Legere had my nephew who just got his masters in performance sax said everyone at school was using them. He only uses them for practice, but I found I actually prefer cane in practice and Legere for performance since they always work and never get dry. I can pick up horn on stage and immediately play with no worries. I do notice that a good cane reed broken in can sound sweeter than I can play with Legere but you can't beat the reliability and versatility. For me it works but I can see perfectionist may not like them, esp. for studio work. But for me, no more late nights trying to finish cane reads which is time spent practicing in instead! I'd be interested in more readers giving their opinions.
