The latest reed design from the leading synthetic brand Legere. This is the French Cut design for Clarinet. This new model is a refined symphonic-type reed which offers a dark, rich, strong sound with plenty of stability.
Legere have modified the profile to ensure an even distribution of material whilst retaining a thin tip. This combination of graduated material thickness and a thin tip design ensures a quick response with just subtle resistance. The sound is rich and resonant with plenty of projection across the range.
This new French Cut reed is produced using the same advanced material and technology used in the highly regarded Signature, European and American Cut reeds. Unlike other cuts though, the French Cut intentionally suppresses high-frequency overtones, this helps deliver a richer sound with more depth.
In terms of strengths; Legere suggest the French Cut is around a ¼ strength softer than the Signature Legere. So if you're used to a Signature #3, you would want a French Cut #3.25. A Vandoren cane traditional reed #2.5 is equivalent to a Legere French Cut #2.75. Please see the reed strength chart in the alternate product pics for more info.

It's well responsive reed with good tone. I use French cut 3,25 and 3,5 on Selmer Focus
