I have tried nearly all the vandoren reeds out there, and am tired of constantly buying reeds that don't work half the time. These reeds have a great tone perfect for ensembles compared to the studio cut legeres, which have a buzz. I usually use Vandoren strength 3 reeds, and I have a strength 3 legere, however, the legere is a bit on the soft side. The legeres are typically a bit on the softer side than the Vandorens, but they have a great exchange policy. Overall, a great reed that lasts as long as it costs.

First let's clear up a couple facts 1. A reeds strength from different companies cannot be compared. There is NO standard. A #2 reed from company A is not the same strength as a #2 from company B--or C--or D--or E and on and on. 2. Cane reeds are very inconsistent these days. If 2 or 3 out of a box of 10 are playable it's a good day. 3. Reeds must be capable of being worked on to get the strength exactly right and should not have to be soaked. These reeds do come in 1/4 sizes instead of the typical 1/2 size increments but how can you pick the first one you order if there are no strength standards? And besides the more you play the more you may have to adjust the reed! I ordered a 21/4 which was too hard so I scraped to make it softer and ended up with a rough surface with a crack. Into the trash! I cannot explain how so many Artist in world symphony orchestras use this brand but I'm happy for them.

It is just not for me.

Comments about Legere Reeds Signature Series Alto Saxophone Reed:

EVEN THOUGH I AM ONLY A BEGINNER WITH THE ALTO SAX I AM LEARNING TO PLAY WELL FAST. I STARTED OUT WITH WOOD REEDS BUT FOUND THEY WEAR OUT QUICKLY. THIS LEGERE REED IS SO MUCH BETTER. EVEN AS A BEGINNER I CAN HEAR THE DIFFERENCE. MUCH BETTERS SOUND AND THE REED DOES NOT HAVE TO BE WET TO WORK PROPERLY. I REALLY LOVE THIS REED. MUCH BETTER SOUND QUALITY AND LESS MAINENANCE . THIS IS TRULY THE BEST REED I WOULD SAX FOR ALL SAX PLAYS BEGINNERS TO PROS

    Comments about Legere Reeds Signature Series Alto Saxophone Reed:

    This is the best Saxophone product EVER! I've played the Baritone Saxophone for years, and I've never played on a reed better than this one. It tops your expectations. It gives you a smooth rich sound and is longer lasting than normal reeds. This reed lasts for months. I love this product, and trust me, you'll like it too.

      Added it to get a bit brighter sound. Really like I can put it on and start playing right away. I had never played on this type before and always used a reed prior. So far so good!

              Right out of the box this reed plays. Not fussing, no soaking, no worrying about keeping it moist. It plays and the sound quality is the same as a cane reed. Very satisfied. Previously used Heimke 3.0. Bought the Legere 2.75 and it was the right choice for me. they have a handy table to match reed strength across several manufacturers. Playing on a Selmer C* on a '69 Selmer Mark VI. Suitable for jazz, concert music and praise music.

                Comments about Legere Reeds Signature Series Alto Saxophone Reed:

                I reviewed the Fibracell reed months earlier & still use & like them but feel the Legere Signature reed is a little better. I play alto (~30 yrs) using a range of ESM Classic & Jazz mouthpieces; 4*, 5 & 6 Classic, & 6 Jazz, on a Buffet 400 Alto. I found the Legere to be stiffer than Fibracell of the same strength by about 3/4 given my 2.25 Legere feels the same in resistance as my #3 Fibracell when used on my #6 Classic with .071 tip opening. The reason I feel the Legere Signature is a little better than Fibracell is that I had more instances of errant mid range note instability with the Fibracell, some of which was due to embrochure fatigue, however, the Fibracell was more sensitive & unforgiving as a result as if to announce this. What really impressed me with the Legere Sig, is where my 2.5 Fibracell was a little too soft & uncooperative with high E & F & had a tendency to close up, my relatively softer #2 Legere Signature reed played through where I was sure it would close up. The Fibracell is still a great reed for the price & play friendly as long as it is matched well for the tip opening. The Legere however, is more forgiving & flexible with range of play across the horn even when it's on the soft side for the tip opening. I purchased two Legere reeds & although the 2.25 felt = to the Fibracell 3, the #2 Legere felt as if it was a little softer than my #2.5 Fibracell so there's some inconsistency with strength likely across both brands. I recommend first time Legere Signature Series users aim for a strength at least .5 softer than the cane reed in use. I'm curious about the longevity now. When the Fibracell reed is about worn out it will fray & fail to vibrate properly at times. I play about 7 hrs a week.
