    The Ultimate Ligature

    The Ultimate Ligature is more than just a trendy accessory, it has been conceived as an instrument in its own right.

    The tightening by a single central screw ensures an even distribution of the pressure on the reed and allows the reed to vibrate freely without damping the natural vibration of the mouthpiece.

    Thanks to the resonating pipes this ligature generates a range of sympathetic vibrations that enrich the player's sound.

    The Ultimate Ligature comes in three finishes:

    The Brass is more resonant and vibrating.
    The Silver is more resistant and darker.
    The Gold has more "elegance" and a slicker tone quality (polished).

    It is always advisable to try different ligatures. Since they are hand made, there might be a little difference between two ligatures of the same finish (smaller or bigger amount of soldering etc. that might have influence on the resonance).

    It is also important to try them with the same set up (horn, mouthpiece and reed).
