Légère Launched Orchestral Grade Synthetic Oboe Reed

Sharon Paquette Lose • Instruments & Gear • June 3, 2016

After many months of delays and streamlining production Légère is proud to launch the first orchestral grade synthetic oboe reed.

After 10 years of research and design went into this product it takes only 20 minutes on a CNC machine to produce plus many other very unique steps such as welding and O ring application.

The reeds are designed as stable through all registers while producing tones that rival great cane reeds. Players who have been using the reeds over the past couple years are finding 6-12 month lifespans with proper care, making them economical even at the very high price of $150USD

As with all Légère reeds, oboe reeds are produced to be playable right out of the box, unaffected by weather and altitude, highly durable compared to cane, and very consistent.
