Resulting from three years of research and development, LIGREED’s clip ligatures have been on the market for a few months. Based on a patented technology, these innovative products transform the way reeds are fixed on woodwind instruments.
An easy-to-adjust accessory with outstanding sound
LIGREED’s clip ligatures for saxophones and clarinets are fitted with a clip that puts pressure on the reed in the vibration direction on the instrument’s mouthpiece. A wheel allows very fine tuning of the reed’s position as well as exceptional, rich in harmonics, diverse and open sound rendition. The exclusive dual material processing with “soft” cushioning avoids interferences between the mouthpiece and the shank, and enhances the quality of the mouthpiece. The shank is held with a carat gold plated screw.
LIGREED’s clip ligature saves time. The company counted up to nine set-ups and removals of the reed in 30 seconds. Additionally, sound adjustments can be made without removing the ligature.
The product is great for young musicians, seasoned musicians and professionals alike.
