Legere | American Cut Synthetic Tenor Saxophone Reeds




The American Cut represents the next-generation of Légère saxophone reeds. From the first note, the reed speaks with total ease while giving players just the right amount of tonal edge. It is effortlessly free-blowing, colourful, and loaded with personality.

The American Cut’s distinct profile is what gives players a full, clear low register and vibrant altissimo.

They are made from polypropylene, which is approved by the FDA for use in direct food contact applications, so these reeds are completely safe to use. They process the polymer in a special way that lines up the molecules themselves in order to precisely match the stiffness and density of moist cane.

Some characteristics of the material:

  • Doesn’t have to be preconditioned before playing.
  • Does not absorb water.
  • Completely non-toxic.
  • It can be sanitized.
  • Extremely tough and it will last a very long, time.
Because of their synthetic nature, they are the only reeds we allow to be tested in store.
