If you use both Legere Signature and Rico Select Jazz reeds on the same mouthpiece, please list the reed strength that you use for each brand. The type of horn (sop/alto/tenor/bari) will also be useful info.

Thanks!

Excellent; on alto I use RSJ 2H. They're a little too resistant when new, but feel good after a fairly short break-in period, so I think they're about the perfect strength for me. For the Legere Signature, I guess I'll try the 2.75 first, and take it from there.

Legere signature 2.25 or 2.5 or a RSJ 2M or 2H on my tenor with a 10mfan Robusto 9. It depends on the sound I need which strength I use.

I wanted to update this thread with my own findings. To me, the Legere Signature 2.75 is slightly harder than the RSJ 2H Unfiled.

I'm currently using the Legere on my Otto Link .076 for a dark sound, and a Fibracell Premiere (still settling on the correct strength, but they definitely run soft) on my Jody Jazz HR* .083 for a brighter, better projecting sound. I'm definitely impressed with these current synthetic reed offerings!

Legere can make reeds in sizes between the standard quarter sizes. I have a 2.35 signature alto.
