Designed by Guy
Légère in a collaboration with Christoph Hartmann of the Berlin
Philharmonic, these reeds will last for months with proper care, providing a
beautiful tone with no pre-moistening required.
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, our 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
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.
