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 response.

Process
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.

  • Surprising Reed

    By: ,

    I have been learning the oboe for a year and a half now and have moved up-to a medium reed. I have come to understand that a reed is a tricky mistress, one day it’s great, the next not so much, they all sound different and play differently, so as a beginner it does make it difficult to know if it’s me being rubbish, or the reed. After looking at different reviews, I decided to take the plunge and buy this reed. I felt that if it lasted as long as people suggest it could it would work out at around the same cost as cane reeds.
    I have to say, it’s great, I love it. I could play it straight out of the box, if I want to just play a few scales as and when I have a moment, I can, I don’t have to wait while the reed soaks then find out it’s not working and get another. The sound is consistent and I am learning how to get the best sound out of it, through breathing and pressure, rather than by luck.
    If you can stump up the cash, I would urge any learner to get one of these, even my husband says I hardly ever play a bum note now and have stopped moaning about the reeds. So everyone is happy.
