Choice of materials
Rule of thumb: For optimal performance use at least a quality lefreQue that equals the material of your instrument or a better quality. Being musicians ourselves, we understand that 'sound' is something very personal. That's why we offer a wide range of materials with different tonal qualities.
Enjoy your lefreQue
