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 have used rico plasticover, bari, and fibracell reeds with some success. Love the fibracell and plasticover, bari are a 2nd or 3rd choice or standby. I rate the legere lower because the performance does not warrant the expense. Alt range is slightly improved over cane reeds but the overall tone quality is inferior. I have been playing sax for 42 yrs, 33 of it professionally. I have used the plasticover since 1978 on bari sax and the fibracell for about 4 yrs on all my horns.
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.
I wrote review last year but wanted to note I find the studio cut for my tenor with Otto Link MP brighter than the non-studio cut. I still use Legere exclusively. Sometimes I miss cane sound but I just don't have the time or patience to deal with cane anymore. For my soprano with the relatively closed C* instead of the wide open MP of my link, then I still use cane because drying and quality of cane isn't so much of an issue in that case and my reeds last longer.
I've used these reeds for years ... mostly on Tenor and Alto. Way better than spending hours soaking, stroking, and all the other nonsense associated with natural reeds. Plus ... NO MOLD! While I do find these will "soften" a little after about 6 months, it's way better than buying cartons of natural reeds, finding a few good ones, and only to ultimately toss after only a few weeks of steady play. Spend your time on technique development, not experimenting on getting a reed to work right.
