I know Legere came out with a new reed ("premium"?) for tenor. Anyone see anything new from them for soprano?

Legere is releasing the Signature model for soprano sax sometime soon according to Tim Elvy at Legere. It's supposedly in a test/trial phase. That was current as of last week.

I see you use Legeres on soprano. Whats you take on their performance vs cane or Hahn synthetic. Also I see you are looking for a Legere Signature type for soprano. What is the thing you seek from that, maybe a little brighter than the Legere original?

Yep, I'm laying claim to the first play of Legere Signature series reeds on soprano saxophone in Australia (thanks to DT Woodwinds for getting them to me)...

I'm starting with a 2.25 matched with my Brendan Tibbs silver mouthpiece on my 1921 Conn New Wonder curved soprano. So far, so good.

I didn't know they were available yet, although heard that the bari and soprano Signatures were on the way. Have you played the standard Legere on soprano and how does the Signature compare with that for sound, feel, strength, response etc ?

I've played soprano saxophone 10 times so far so I'm not laying claim to any comparison tests! (And no, it's just 9 plays on cane and the 1 on Signature so far...)
