Re: Alto sax reeds
I'm one of the older saxophonists on here, I've tried (and had students try) almost every synthetic reed on the market. I've had a few students have good results from the "Signature Series" not the "Classic". Their "classic" reed doesn't hold up to extra duty use like high volumes/pressures for marching. The strength degrades quickly (my experience). The only synthetic I or my students have had continual success with is Forestone. The upside is that these are roughly the same price as the Legere Signature. I have one that I've been using for gigs that is over 5 years old and I can't tell any decrease in performance.
Legere isn't band. I've gone almost exclusively to using them with tenors and bari.
What are your thaughts on the plastic sax reeds?
