    I’ve checked and the whole episode is working. Please try to refresh your browser, or try listening on Apple Podcasts or Spotify and see if this helps solve the issue. Thank you!

Thanks so much for this. I am an adult armature who started playing clarinet with our local New Horizons Band 4 years ago when I retired. I discovered Legere reeds a couple of years ago and now play almost exclusively on Legere Eurocuts with a Backun Vocalize mouthpiece and love it as it is so much more consistent than cane reeds. As a slight disadvantage, I can’t blame my reed for my squeaks and poor tone anymore!

    So glad you enjoyed this episode! Enjoy your trouble-free reeds!

i wonder why the German Legere reeds never went through the different iterations like the French reeds.
