American Cut reeds represent the next generation of Légère saxophone reeds. From the first note, the reed sounds with total ease while giving the musicians just the right amount of tonal advantage. They are easy to play, colourful and full of personality.
The distinctive profile of the American Cut reeds is what gives the players a vibrant overtone register with a full and clear low register.
The American Cut is like no other reed you have ever touched. By taking material from the outside of the reed and pushing it towards the heart, the reed maintains its rigidity while allowing the edges to vibrate as freely as possible.

Made for jazz:
After years of research, more than ten design iterations and hundreds of test reeds issued, American Cut is the most developed reed Légère has ever produced. This extensive testing process was carried out with one purpose; to create a jazz reed that offers total freedom of interpretation while providing the reliability for which Légère reeds have become known.
