    Has anyone tried both of these on bass clarinet? If so, could you tell me how they compare? I'm currently playing on a tenor sax Legere Signature 2.75 (that I've been playing since March) and I'm looking to get a backup. I've tried a number of different types of cane reeds on bass clarinet...

    After playing cane reeds since I started playing Alto Sax in 5th grade, I purchased a synthetic reed for the first time earlier this year. Bought a Legere Studio Cut. I have used it almost exclusively since I purchased it in the early summer. Lately it has been smelling a little funky. Does...

    Does anybody here have experience with the Forestone White Bamboo reeds? I could only find one review on this forum from a classical player. It seems that he had a positive experience with those reeds. I am looking for sound clips if possible. I am currently using Legere Signature and Forestone...

    Any good? I use the legere SS on alto, but on baritone i played rico royals and vandoren traditionals, to me at least synthetics are WAY better, cane never bothered me on baritone, but i've heard the baritone reeds on legere aren't as good as the others.

    Hi, I got my Legere Reed 2 days ago. It's a Classic Series 2.25 for alto sax. I'm a beginner: I started to play about 4 months ago and I've been playing on a Rico 2.5 cane reed and a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece. I tried to play using my brand new Legere, but I find much more easier to play with the...

    Hi all, I recently bought a Legere Signature in 2.5 for tenor. Not a huge fan. I found it to be stuffy, and felt too soft. I could not play loudly on it. I normally play on Vandoren V16s in 3, which feel fantastic about 1/5 times. So my question is, should I get a Legere Signature in a harder...

    Hey, So for marching band, I've been using Vandoren Java 3.5s with my plastic Brilhart Ebolin 4*. I'm happy with the Java's performance, but the weather is messing with my reed, and people keep breaking it (by hitting it, etc). A senior advised I get a synthetic or plastic reed, so I decided...

    Hi everyone, INTRO: I play a Cannonbal Big Bell Global series with a Fat Neck. This gives me quite an open tone. But here`s the "problem" I play in a sort of a brass band, and sometimes i`m up against 7 trumpets and 3 trombones. I`m not completely alone but my fellow sax players cant play...

    Hello saxontheweb, Just recently bought myself a used Keilwerth tenor, and discovered a few goodies in the case, some really high end reeds. These are what I found: Vandoren 3 Vandoren V16 Legere 3 (Synthetic, clear) On my regular Rico reed, the tone on my sax is very strong, deep, and full...

    I've played alto for a couple years and I'm thinking of ordering a plastic reed, probably a Legere. Any suggestions on what strength and such I should look for?
