bassoon reed is remarkable. I could only play one other reed maker's reeds
and those were the ones of the legendary Louis Skinner who passed away 30
years ago. Since then, the only reeds I could play were the one I made.
Therefore, I was amazed that Legere responded almost exactly like my
handmade reeds. I have played it for colleagues in a "close your eyes and
listen test" and no one can tell the Legere from my own reeds.
Congratulations on an exceptional accomplishment and contribution to the
woodwind world. I have heard that work is in progress for an oboe and
English horn reed. Please be encouraged to complete that project as well.
Sincerely, Stephen Goacher, Howard Payne University
I just received my bassoon reeds today. I tried your proto type way back
at IDRS in Banff. And I was waiting for this! I ordered a soft and a
medium. I like them both. I am going to play the upcoming concerts with
them! Mitch Iimori, Portland, OR
