Legere French Cut Alto Reed


The French Cut, by Légère Reeds. A refined symphonic reed that gives players a richness and stability in tone, with just the right amount of resistance.
The French Cut’s revamped profile emphasizes an even material distribution but retains a thin tip, providing artists with the ideal mix of quick response and subtle resistance. This design produces a sound that’s rich and resonant, all while catering to the orchestral performer.
Marrying scientific research with a love for reed-making, the creation of the French Cut underwent countless refinements, considering feedback from devoted artists. The aim: a synthetic reed that meets the sonic quality of traditional reeds while maintaining all the advantages of a synthetic reed. Responding to players’ desires, the French Cut stands as a combination of age-old preferences and modern innovation.
The French Cut is an expansion of Légère’s flagship reed series. Using the same advanced material technology featured in our Signature, European, and American Cut reeds, the French Cut now gives players new choices to optimize their tone, resistance, and sound.
