In the past week my new Signature Series Legere's have split for both my tenor and alto. Right in the middle of the reed too and of course right before what I felt was an important show. The splits are both more than a 1/4 inch into the reed. Anybody else find the signatures more fragile than the original or studio cut? I played the dang things split because there was no time to make a change. The alto seemed to play fine but I had to work the tenor to get any satisfaction. It lends a new meaning to the term, "Double Reed". These thing are too expensive to wear out so quickly.
