Synthetic Reeds vs. Cane Reeds
Jay at Better Sax compares Légère American Cut reeds to cane reeds.
Using specially engineered and 'oriented' polypropylene to make both single and double reeds, Legere reeds offer several incredible benefits to players. They don’t require soaking and are therefore instantly ready-to-play and responsive right out of the box. Unlike many woodwind reeds, they are unaffected by weather, temperature, or humidity and offer excellent longevity.
