Legere American Cut Baritone Saxophone Reed

C$37.95
The American Cut is the culmination of a 6-year research project to advance the Signature Series technology and create a reed that answers the needs of the world’s most discerning jazz musicians.

What makes the American Cut so special?
 
From the very first note, the reed speaks without hesitation. It is effortlessly free-blowing, responsive, colourful, and loaded with personality. The reed’s unmistakable character is thanks to an entirely reinvented profile and heart, and a shorter and wider vamp. By drawing material from the edges toward the centre spine, the reed strikes a harmonious balance of responsiveness and control. Ultra-fine edges allow unrestrained vibration rewarding the player with a clear low-register and vibrant altissimo.

 

What type of player will enjoy the American Cut?
 
Jazz players from absolute beginners to renowned masters. The reed’s extremely playable nature, however, ensures that a broad range of artists will adore it, especially those who felt that the Signature reed did not match their tone.

Reinvented Profile

The American Cut is the ideal jazz saxophone reed and 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.
