The Légère Oboe reed was designed by Guy Légère in a collaboration with Christoph Hartmann of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. These reeds will last for months with proper care, providing a beautiful tone with no pre-moistening required.
Now available in three strengths to suit all players! (Medium Soft, Medium, and Medium Hard.)
“Top symphonic and jazz musicians have been using the Légère single reeds for more than a decade. From the principals of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic orchestras, to jazz greats like Gerald Albright and Hamiet Bluiett, the reeds have been tested at the highest possible level. Now this same exceptional quality is available in a Légère oboe reed.
Like our single reeds, Légère oboe reeds have all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. Because they are made from our specially prepared synthetic material, they deliver all the advantages of a traditional Légère reed; consistency, durability and an instant response.
Légère oboe reeds are cut from our own unique polymer on 3-axis, computer controlled precision cutting machines. We can also measure our reeds with extreme precision using computer controlled equipment, and this allows us to maintain very tight quality control.
The reeds are cut in halves using our own customized profiles which are based on a mathematical description of a reed profile rather than a model or prototype. The halves are then bonded together again using a digitally controlled system. The result is a reed which is perfectly balanced in both blades, and has just the right combination of tip thickness, heart, and flexibility.” – Légère Reeds
Please note these reeds are supplied in sealed packaging and we cannot accept any returns. We have a demonstrator in the shop to see if these reeds suit your own playing, but the stock reeds must be purchased before being removed from the packaging.
