Signature Series reeds are made from a stiffer material and are cut thinner than our Classic reeds. These changes make the Signature Series reeds more flexible across the tip, producing a full spectrum of overtones and a beautiful sound with minimum effort.
Légère proudly boast of many professional players in orchestras and jazz ensembles who play their synthetic reeds, including members of the Berlin Philharmonic, session players in London's West-end and Broadway, as well as various international artists.
Légère reeds are made from a special trade-secret polymer that is designed to imitate a damp cane reed as closely as possible. The manufacturing process allows a very precise cut to allow a fantastic response from every reed and the ability to create quarter-strength sizes. While each reed is unique, playing time tends to last significantly longer than a cane reed and some players claim to have reeds lasting months at a time.
Unlike a cane reed, the synthetic material doesn't need to be moistened in order to play, making it ideal for teachers or reed-doublers that need an instant response when swapping instruments.
