The Legere Alto Saxophone Signature Synthetic Reed is suitable for professional players and features a high quality, durable design. This product has a strength of 2.5 and is capable of producing warm, rich tones in all registers. The tip of the reed is flexible and can produce a full spectrum of overtones with minimum effort. The reed is cut thinner and is made from a stiffer material than Legere’s Classic series. Whereas a traditional cane reed would need changing regularly due to damage and natural wear, this synthetic Legere reed will last much longer, saving players money in the future.
