Designed to the most exacting specifications, these reeds deliver all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. The new Signature Series Reeds are the solution for players who haven't yet found the perfect sound with other synthetic reeds.

Months of testing with top professionals including Larry Combs and Barnaby Robson have demonstrated that the new reeds can add another dimension to the already rich Legere sound. Mr. Combs, former Principal Clarinet in Chicago, has said that the new reeds "feel and sound very natural."

I've been using a 3.75 Legere Signature for a couple of years and consistently have the tone quality I want with a Larry Combs mouthpiece. I have seen no degradation over time. The upper register has been a little stiff in response though, so I'm now trying a 2.75. I think the tone is slightly harsh but that's what I would expect that with cane reeds of different strengths as well. I probably need something in between. I am sold on the concept of a reed that is always ready to go and easy to prepare and maintain. I have several cane reeds in my case that I used to rely on but haven't touched in all this time. There's been no need to.

I have a MA in clarinet performance and have been playing for 60 years.
I play synthetic reeds on all my saxophones, bass clarinet and now Bb clarinet, when ever I play in a pit orchestra or band. There is not a good way to keep a cane reed wet when playing multiple instruments. I do not detect a big difference between the signature and the regular Legere Reeds (except for the price). The quality does not compare to a good cane reed. The Signature #3 I purchased is slightly stiffer than a cane #3, so you might want to drop down one strength (e.g. 3 to a 2.75 or 2.5). Difficult to adjust this reed without damaging it, however, there are some postings on line that discuss how and how much you can do to the reed. Better to return the reed for the needed strength.

        Comments about Legere Reeds Signature Series Bb Clarinet Reed:

        Personally, I prefer the 3.5, but the 3.75 is great to. It is just slightly less hard then a Vandoren Silver box 4. It produces good tone and doesn't change with the weather or altitude, a problem I have in Montana. It took me about a week to actually get used to them and like them. If you new to the legere reeds, I would recommend playing on one for a week before making your decision.

                        I was recently introduced to the Signature series and now I am hooked. I now have them in my Bb, C and bass clarinets and have just put a sop sax reed in my tarogato. No more concerns about weather affecting reeds or drying out between doubling. Sound and tonal quality is great. Waiting for the reeds to become available for German system clarinet mouthpiece and the new oboe reeds now under development.

                          I just love this LeGere reed. I never thought I would pay this much for one reed but it'll probably last for years if it's like my bass clarinet reed. I would never go back to regular reeds again.

                            The new Signature line is a world of difference from the older synthetic reeds. The sound and response is very good and I now use only the Signature reeds on Bb, C, Tarogato and bass clarinets.

                            Great reed; but 2014 price too high

                            Was using Ontario cut 3.75 weight but couldn't get above high A. Now can play up to high C (6 ledger above staff)

                                Strength 3 too stiff. Reordered a 2 3/4 and it also is too stiff. I'm trying to work with it a while to see if I can adjust.

                                Believe me, I wouldn't pay this much for a reed if it didn't put out. When my colleagues, who frown on "plastic" reeds, come up after a concert and tell me I sounded great, I like to hold up my Legere reed. One bassoonist was particularly down on "plastic" reeds, but after a season with our orchestra, she told me, "I wish they worked for bassoon." Bottom line, if you want to know you have a workable reed before you walk out on stage, get a Legere Signature.
