Description

Designed by Guy Légère in a collaboration with Christoph Hartmann of the Berlin Philharmonic, these reeds will last for months with proper care, providing a beautiful  tone with no pre-moistening required.  

Top symphonic and jazz musicians have been using the Légère single reeds for more than a decade. From the principals of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic orchestras, to jazz greats like Gerald Albright and Hamiet Bluiett, our reeds have been tested at the highest possible level. Now this same exceptional quality is available in a Légère oboe reed.

Like our single reeds, Légère oboe reeds have all the depth and warmth that elite players demand. Because they are made from our specially prepared synthetic material, they deliver all the advantages of a traditional Légère reed; consistency, durability and an instant response.

Process

Légère oboe reeds are cut from our own unique polymer on 3-axis, computer controlled precision cutting machines. We can also measure our reeds with extreme precision using computer controlled equipment, and this allows us to maintain very tight quality control.

The reeds are cut in halves using our own customized profiles which are based on a mathematical description of a reed profile rather than a model or prototype. The halves are then bonded together again using a digitally controlled system. The result is a reed which is perfectly balanced in both blades, and has just the right combination of tip thickness, heart, and flexibility.

Legere røret har en fantastisk god tone i både dybde og højde. Jeg er ren amatør, men jeg tog alligevel chancen og købte røret så snart de var på lager hos Gottfried. Og jeg blev IKKE skuffet. Fordi bladet ikke skal lægges i blød tror jeg der kom mindre kondens i overdelen på min obo, og jeg behøver ikke rense den hele tiden. Tonen er ret konsistent, og bliver ikke (så vidt jeg har kunnet bedømme indtil videre) påvirket af vind og vejr. Min lærer prøvede det også, og hun sagde at det var et rigtig godt rør – hvilket hun ellers ikke var vandt til med plastikrør. Eneste ting er, at røret måske er lidt hårdere end hvad jeg er vant til, så jeg skal lige arbejde lidt med min embrochure… Det kommer!

Habilt, velfungerende reserverør, som ikke svigter mig når mine trætte står af. Ikke så godt som de oborør jeg laver selv, men betydeligt bedre end at spille uden noget rør overhovedet!
