Really Perfect
06.07.2016
It's been quite a while since I've been plaguing wooden reeds: once the treble does not come out, once the bass is too hard or "vibrate" ... Not to mention scratching and editing are a real nightmare. With these plastic reeds, it's over. The sound is beautiful, expressive, the reed does not need to be heated or moistened and all the notes come out (at least all the ones I know): Bb serious in the 4th C #. No complaints !

The egg of Columbus ????
Ruud E, 09.02.2018
Plastic reeds are getting better. This certainly also applies to the Légère plastic bassoon reeds.
The first reed that I played was a medium reed and that was a pleasant surprise:
+ notes speak easily
+ the sound is very neat
+ ambient temperature and ~ humidity have practically no influence on the playability of the reed

- the reed is too close to my feeling
- you can not update the reed, so it is what it is

By heating and cooling (with something in your reed that opens it a little bit further) in water, I was able to open the reed a bit further and the opening remained constant after 3 of these treatments.
After that the reed played pretty well and I even played concerts on it (I am a professional bassoonist).
Nevertheless, in the long run I missed some strength and resistance in the reeds, which meant that the top of the dynamic was missing.

The second reed that I tried out was logically the medium-hard cane.
Unfortunately this was not the step forward that I was hoping for:
+ no noticeable influences of temperature and humidity

- difficult appealing notes
- smaller sound than straw medium
- do not update, so do not improve

In the same way as with the other reeds, I tried to open the reed a bit more, but that only had the result that the reed was even more difficult.
My attempts to carefully pick up some of the reeds with a file yielded a straw that does not play better and also looks very ugly. The material of the reed is not suitable for working with a file.

All in all a good step in the direction and a significant improvement over previous plastic reeds (which were usually broken after a week), but not yet the egg of Columbus for bassoon players.
The biggest downside is that you can hardly update the reed and that is, given the fact that the finishing of a bassoon cane is very personal, a reason to hope that some developments will take place in that area.
