Musicians who play E flat sax or B flat clarinet waste time to remove the ligature from their mouthpiece to place the reed. Often, they want to improve the sound of their instrument and face a lack of adjustment. Fortunately, there is a product that transforms the field of ligatures.
This ligature is easy to adjust
The patented Ligreed ligature is fitted with a clip that presses the reed onto the mouthpiece of the saxophone or clarinet. A wheel allows you to move the reed forward or backward to find the ideal position in relation to the mouthpiece and its hardness.
In addition, in three seconds, you can set up and remove the reed. What a time saver! It is no longer necessary to remove the ligature to clean the mouthpiece. Once it’s on, you don’t take it out!
For the first time, its inventor Jean-Jacques Mure exhibited this music accessory at the Namm Show in Los Angeles from January 24 to 27, 2019. This model aroused strong interest from visitors who like instruments. The test requests were numerous.
An exceptional sound
The sound quality of the alto saxophone and B flat clarinet ligature seduced the musicians. All said that the sound was extremely good and that the design was very innovative. There is no tightening: it’s pressure on the reed in the same way as vibration. The effects are very clear when you are listening to the instrument. It opens up the sound which is more diverse and rich in harmonics. There are good news for music lovers. The sound potential of their sax or clarinet is now under control.
” To try it is to love it “,
explains Jean-Jacques Mure. Indeed, the characteristics of this model convinced the musicians who tested the new plastic ligature on their alto sax or B flat clarinet. Some videos shooted during the exhibition show famous musicians or not discovering the Ligreed ligature and its sound qualities. It brings a wind of change to the accessories for saxophone and clarinet, for a reasonable price.
