The Legere alto saxophone American cut synthetic reed is perfectly engineered to fit the needs of the world's most discerning jazz musicians. Based on the success of the Signature series, the American cut delivers everything you could want from a jazz reed.
The first thing you'll notice when playing the American cut reed is how responsive it is. Effortlessly free-blowing and loaded with personality, the Legere American cut reed features an entirely reinvented profile alongside a shorter vamp. The American Cut is unlike any reed you’ve ever played. By taking material from the outside of the reed and pushing it towards the heart, the reed maintains its stiffness while allowing the edges to vibrate as freely as possible. This change creates a sharp spine through the center of the vamp giving the reed its unique appearance.
The American Cut’s distinct profile is what gives players a full, clear low register and vibrant altissimo.
You don't get a synthetic reed this good without some serious science. To ensure that every reed is the exact same, each American cut reed is cut with the utmost precision. This means you can buy knowing it's ready to play straight out of the box. The same reed - every time.
