Product Information

Legere clarinet reeds are made from a special polymer compound with a very fine microtexture. They have low density, so that they float, just like cane reeds. This hi-tech material is designed to mimic the properties of damp cane as closely as possible. The lifespan of these synthetic style reeds can be reportedly months and make a great, consistent sound.

The Classic Legere has a thicker tip than the Signature model and is a thicker overall profile resulting in a dark sound with a very percussive nature. This makes it ideal for large ensemble playing such as Concert or Marching Band use. The Classic was the original Legere design which pioneered the single reed market.

  • Legere Classic - Clarinet Reed
  • Supplied as Single Reed
  • Extremely durable | Dark sounding

Legere Bb Clarinet Classic Reed Reviews

Anonymous review via Feefo  -  2023-02-20

Great synthetic reeds the classic is fine for everyday

I didn’t realise how significant the type of Reed used could make. I really like the Legere Reed, excellent sound

Lower star rating mainly because I’m using the plastic reeds for the first time so not sure if some of the squeaks and squeals are down to me or the Reed. However, the sound is a lot brighter and as some of the information says, may be better when playing outside. That said, once I’m used to it I’ll probably increase the star rating.

A real solution to an eternal clarinet players problem. Pruduces a real sweet tone

It's handy to have a reed in the case that always works. It is not as responsive as I would like but they are handy for travel or challenging weather conditions.

Still getting used to this. Useful to be able to use without preparation, bit harder than the number indicated, slightly breathy tone which I hope will improve with use. One cavil: comes packed in cardboard only so you have to have some sort of reed case. Not cheap!

I thought I would give synthetic reeds a try. Not bad straight out of the box and no preparation required but they just don't cut it in terms of sound quality when compared with a cane reed.

Levere classic Reed. A little harder than expected but good for emboucher development practice. Found a half strength softer more suitable for me. Expensive but should last.
