Legere American Cut Tenor Sax Reeds
The Legere American Cut Tenor Sax reed is the ideal jazz reed and is unlike any reed you’ve ever played. By taking material from the outside of the reed and pushing it towards the heart, the reed maintains its stiffness while allowing the edges to vibrate as freely as possible. This change creates a sharp spine through the center of the vamp giving the reed its unique appearance.
The American Cut’s distinct profile is what gives players a full, clear low register and vibrant altissimo.
Made for Jazz
After years of research, more than ten design iterations, and hundreds of test reeds issued, the American Cut is the most thoroughly developed reed Légère has ever produced. This extensive testing process was conducted for one purpose; to create a jazz reed that offers total performance freedom while delivering the dependability that Légère reeds have become known for.
Tried synthetic reeds in the past? You haven’t tried this one.
Designed to the most exacting specifications, these reeds deliver all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. Like all Légère reeds, this reed;
- Has the properties of moist cane
- Does not have to be Preconditioned before playing
- Completely Non-Toxic
