Légère Synthetic Pro Bassoon Reed
Like Légère single reeds, their bassoon reeds have all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. Because they are made from their specially prepared synthetic material, they deliver all the advantages of a traditional Légère reed; consistency, durability and an instant response.
Légère bassoon reeds are cut from their own unique polymer on 3-axis, computer controlled precision cutting machines. They can also measure their reeds with extreme precision using computer controlled equipment, and this allows them to maintain very tight quality control.
The reeds are cut in halves using their own customized profiles which are based on a mathematical description of a reed profile rather than a model or prototype. The halves are then bonded together again using a digitally controlled system. The result is a reed which is perfectly balanced in both blades, and has just the right combination of tip thickness, heart, and flexibility.
Légère Reeds, Ltd.
Légère Reeds was founded by Dr. Guy Légère and Dr. Mark Kortschot in 1998 for the sole purpose of producing high end synthetic woodwind reeds. Today the company produces state of the art reeds for world wide distribution from an ultra modern manufacturing and distribution facility located north of Toronto, Canada with a dedicated staff. We have upgraded our machinery several times as we have grown, and we have sophisticated computer controlled machinery making our precision reeds.
