OVERVIEW

Synthetic bassoon reed for exacting players.

Légère bassoon reeds have all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. Made from specially prepared synthetic material, they deliver all the advantages of a traditional Légère reed; consistency, durability and an instant response.

Materials
Légère reeds are made from polypropylene, which is approved by the FDA for use in direct food contact applications.

Process
Légère bassoon reeds are cut from Lg¨res own unique polymer on 3-axis, computer-controlled precision cutting machines. Légère can also measure their reeds with extreme precision using computer-controlled equipment, allowing a very tight quality control.

The reeds are cut in halves using customized profiles based on a mathematical description of a reed profile rather than a model or prototype. The halves are then bonded together again using a digitally controlled system. The result is a reed that is perfectly balanced in both blades, and has just the right combination of tip thickness, heart, and flexibility.

I have been using these for almost three years now

By 

from Madison, WI

Comments about Legere Reeds Bassoon Synthetic Reed:

Over the past three years, these are all I have been using, for practice, rehearsals, and now concerts. During that time I have received three different generations of these reeds. The latest version has been far better than the previous version. They play more consistently and look better as well.

They take about and hour or two to fully break in. I suggest you get the reed just a bit harder than you want, knowing they will be easier to play after a couple of hours.

They longevity of these reeds exceeded my expectation. While expensive, they last a very long time (six months to a year), so they end up being cheaper than cane reeds. They also are not influenced by humidity, which is a huge plus.

I always get several to try and then return what I don't want. The individual differences are subtle but there so it is worth trying them briefly and keeping the ones you like best.

An excellent back up reed

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Legere Reeds Bassoon Synthetic Reed:

First, these are not the same horrible "plastic" reeds that used to be around years ago. This is in completely different league. (Thank goodness). The feel of the reed is slightly different, feeling more stiff than a regular cane reed. But the reed responds well, is reasonably in tune throughout the range, and is consistent from day to day. The downside is that it does not have the deep resonant reed sound of traditional cane. The tone is fine, just not beautiful. But the ease of playing and consistent playability are a huge plus. Definitely give it a try!

    I will not buy another legere bassoon reed

    By 

    from Sierra Vista

    Site Member

    Comments about Legere Reeds Bassoon Synthetic Reed:

    The reed is very stuffy and sharp in the extreme ranges and does not project as well as a cane reed. I think the tip needs to be wider and the aperture needs to be a little more open.
