Strength

The European Cut (also known as the Euro Signature) for Clarinet is Légère's most flexible reed. The unique profile design allows for a bright, colourful yet warm and clean sound. It responds without hesitation and easily glides from the low registers to the high registers of the instrument. 

Its ease of playing is the reason why this reed is used by so many Légère Endorsing Artists. This reed is preferred by advanced and professional clarinetists worldwide.

The Vocalise series of mouthpieces by Hawkins and Backun were optimized to work exceptionally well with synthetic reeds, such as the European Cut. 

Packaging varies from time-to-time, depending on what is available from Légère. There is no way to guarantee that reeds will ship with new packaging, as shown in the image provided. 

Note: For health and safety reasons, reeds purchased on our website are final sale. For after-purchase support or exchange, please contact

Awesome reeds

Previously purchased additional reeds from Backun. Moved away from cane reeds last year and never looked looked back. Sounds great with my Vocalese mouthpiece and MoBa barrel and Beta clarinet.

Legere

I bought two legere reeds. Both play really well. Complex tone, good response and, of course, no modification needed. I know they’ll last for weeks if not months and give me hours of practice time instead of reed-fixing/testing/frustration time.

Perfect Combination with CG Vocalise

I started using my new Legere reed this week and wow...I'm blown away! For me the combination of the Vocalise mouthpiece and the Legere reed is perfect and I can truly recommend it to any clarinetist!

Needs experimentation and patience...

I've been going back-and-forth with the various Legere reeds for some time finally settling on the European cut. I've tried various strengths with various mouthpieces searching for a combination that would play with ease and sound good throughout the chalumeau, clarion and altissimo range. Recently I also experimented with the new Venn for Bb clarinet and was almost seduced by it's ease of play and dark tone. But the Venn had trouble not going flat in the altissimo range, so I've gone back to the Legere. I've also gone through a number of mouthpieces to get the right match. Started with an M30 for awhile, then a C85-120, then to a 5RV and finally to a 5RV lyre which seems a great match for the Euro cut in a 3.0 strength reed. Easy, easy play and great sound!

Légère European Cut Bb Clarinet Reeds

This order from Backun were my 2nd & 3rd reeds in 2.75 strength for my Vocalise G mouthpiece which sounds so well with my MoBa barrel and Beta clarinet.

New Légère European Cut Clarinet Reeds are terrific!

I have used Légère European Cut clarinet reeds for a couple of years with moderately good success. There has been considerable variability with a specific strength. The most recent Légère reed I received from Backun was a new release from Légère. The packaging was different, the strength was right on, the number of the strength was printed on the base of the reed, the surface of the base of the reed was less polished and holds in the ligature better, the responsiveness was improved. Everything about Légère’s new upgrade is first class—except the new carrying case for an individual reed is bulky and difficult to put the reed back in after use. Over all I say Congratulations to Légère for this upgrade. GSF
