Description

Légère reeds have a good sound and projection; they also have all the advantages of synthetic material: fast response, precise articulation, very long duration and consistency that is not affected by changes in humidity in the environment.

In addition, Légère reeds can be easily disinfected with hot water and a mild detergent. 

Légère has a meticulous, numerically controlled cutting system, with which it produces totally cloned canes, thus ensuring the perfection of its products. 

The Légère Signatures for Saxophone respond without hesitation. They are thinner and stiffer than a traditional cane reed, making them easy to play and wonderfully smooth. They produce a pristine, centered sound with colorful overtones.

This reed is medium-bright yet focused which is why it’s used worldwide by advanced and professional players in both jazz and classical settings.

About Legere

As a scientific researcher and author of several patents, Guy Légère has spent as long as he can remember trying to figure out what makes things react. Guy graduated from McGill University in 1995 with a PhD. in Chemistry.

Guy took up the clarinet at the age of 27, studying under Abe Galper and playing in the Brampton Symphony Orchestra. His reeds created issues from the start. Something needed to change when he found himself spending more time on finding good reeds rather than on his music! As a researcher he was exposed to many types of materials and manufacturing techniques and as a chemist, he had the knowledge needed on how to manipulate these compounds. After gathering basic knowledge of how a reed works, Guy formulated an idea of what an ideal material might be. He reached out to Mark Kortschot (actual Legere President) for help, and a business was born.

Légère Reeds Ltd. was founded by Dr. Guy Légère and Dr. Mark Kortschot in 1998. Guy, a scientist and amateur clarinetist, thought that there had to be a product that played as well as moist cane without any of the inevitable issues that resulted from using traditional reeds. It was his drive and passion to change these issues that lead to the creation of the first Légère Reed prototype.

After many trials, failed attempts and re-engineering, the first sixty prototypes were made on a home-built CNC machine. They were taken to ClarinetFest in 1998 to test with experienced players. To Mark and Guy’s amazement, all the reeds sold out in half a day, and the rest… is history!

Today, Légère Reeds produces state of the art synthetic reeds for many single and double reed instruments. Distributed worldwide, the reeds are produced in an ultra-modern manufacturing and distribution facility in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
