Description

The American Cut is the culmination of a 6-year research project to advance Legere's Signature Series technology and create a reed that answers the needs of the world's most discerning jazz musicians. Legere are proud to say the American Cut delivers everything they set out to achieve, and much, much more.

From the very first note, the reed speaks without hesitation. It is effortlessly free-blowing, responsive, colourful, and loaded with personality. The reed's unmistakable character is thanks to an entirely reinvented profile and heart, and a shorter and wider vamp. By drawing material from the edges toward the centre spine, the reed strikes a harmonious balanceof responsiveness and control. Ultra-fine edges allow unrestrained vibration rewarding the player with a clear low-register and vibrant altissimo.

What type of player will enjoy the American Cut? Jazz players from absolute beginners to renowned masters. The reed's extremely playable nature, however, ensures that a broad range of artists will adore it, especially those who felt that the Signature reed did not match their tone.

Let's just say this... I wish I had a reed 'exactly' like this one every time I applied it to my mouthpiece! It has the 'buzz', the edge, the projection, and the consistency up and down the alto sax. - Gerald Albright, American Jazz Saxophonist.

Using specially engineered and 'oriented' polypropylene to make both single and double reeds, Legere reeds offer a number of incredible benefits to players:

  • Legere Reeds never need to be soaked, as they instantly respond right out of the box.
  • Legere Reeds are unaffected by weather, temperature, or humidity so they are always consistent, working and sounding just as you expect.
  • Legere Reeds offer incredible longevity. Just one reed could last you for months!

Please note: A single reed is supplied per pack.
