Legere Synthetic Bassoon Reed (Plastic, Medium)
Due to generally bad feedback from our customers regarding these synthetic reeds, we have decided to discontinue selling them. They do not to perform as well as cane reeds and the consistency from reed to reed is poor (which is particularly frustrating as they are so expensive!)
The Legere Synthetic Bassoon Reed (Medium) is the newest revolution in 'synthetic' or plastic bassoon reeds. Unlike classic cheap plastic bassoon reeds, Legere synthetic reeds are carefully built up to resemble the natural fibres of real bassoon reed cane.
- Never needs soaking
- Works straight away every time
- Lasts 3+ months of regular use
- Great for pit work - allows quick swaps!
- 'Medium' strength to suit most players
Ready to play in an instant
Gone are the days when you need to soak your bassoon reeds. These synthetic bassoon reeds require no moisture to play, they just need 15 seconds to 'warm-up' to full playing capability. This is ideal if you are a doubling musician or do 'pit work' (you regularly play and swap between a few instruments) as the reed is always ready to play.
Legere Synthetic Bassoon reeds are made from Polypropylene, which is approved by the FDA for direct use in contact with food, so they are completely safe to use.
