The Legere Oboe reed (European Cut) is one of the greatest innovations in reeds that we have seen in a very long time. This is not the plastic reed of your youth! It is a precision machined piece of fused plastic with rubber gaskets that slide into the reed tube. They have some distinct advantages over traditional cane reeds in that they do not need to be soaked and can be played ‘dry’. They also have the habit of lasting much longer than traditional reeds: months instead of weeks. These reeds are not cheap, but how much is it worth to you to get the sound and feel of a great reed with no need for adjustments, no break in period, no soaking, and can potentially last an entire orchestral season?
