Featuring a stiffer material which is cut thinner than traditional cane reeds, the flexibility across the tip of the reed is overall increased. This results in a full spectrum of colourful overtones achieved with minimum effort, whilst also allowing the reed to be easily played and beautifully free-blowing.
Légère uses polypropylene to create their reeds. By using composite materials, synthetic Legere reeds last much longer than those crafted traditionally from cane. This is because traditional cane reeds need regularly changing due to damage and natural wear.
Created using advanced machine technology, Legere reeds are designed in a way that every reed will be identical to the next. Many traditional cane reeds have slight differences from one reed's strength to another, but due to Légère reeds being made from composite materials, you can be assured that every reed will be absolutely consistent.
