Legere Reeds American Cut Saxophone Personality

Reinvented Profile

The American Cut is unlike any reed you’ve ever played. By taking material from the outside of the reed and pushing it towards the heart, the reed maintains its stiffness while allowing the edges to vibrate as freely as possible. This change creates a sharp spine through the center of the vamp giving the reed its unique appearance.

The American Cut’s distinct profile is what gives players a full, clear low register and vibrant altissimo.

Made for Jazz

After years of research, more than ten design iterations, and hundreds of test reeds issued, the American Cut is the most thoroughly developed reed Légère has ever produced. This extensive testing process was conducted for one purpose; to create a jazz reed that offers total performance freedom while delivering the dependability that Légère reeds have become known for.

Tried synthetic reeds in the past? You haven’t tried this one.

    I chose this reed based on prior experience with a 1.5 version and a need to move up to a 2.0 but found the 0.5 increase too much. Fortunately Legere provides a 1.75 reed. These reeds beat bamboo reeds hands down in my experience and although expensive outlast bamboo reeds about 60 fold so the extra cost is recovered in time. Tone and consistency are very good.

    Fast delivery and assistance when needed. The Legere reeds are far superior to bamboo reeds for consistency in tone and longevity.

    I’ve bought 4 of the 2.5 American cut légère reeds. The first one I got was perfect and has lasted many months. The other 3 have been average/bad reeds. The second one I sent back and was graciously given a replacement which also was unfortunately also not so good. I ordered another this week and again it is not resonating properly.. such a shame as I really wanted to transition to synthetic reeds..

    I’ve don’t play cane reeds. Legere have been my choice since day one.
