Rovner Light ligatures incorporate an old idea for creating natural sound...softly holding the reed to the mouthpiece with no pressure points, just as if the reed were tied on a string. Because there are no pressure points or rigid constraints on the reed, the reed seats evenly to the facing of the mouthpiece, thereby reducing stiffness and increasing tonal clarity. These features contribute to the playing characteristics for which Rovner Ligatures are famous; even scales, accurate intonation and excellent control. Light models have a rectangular cut-out that reduces the amount of contact between reed and ligature for enhanced flexibility. As a result, they are more free-playing than the original dark designs, with a broader, more open tone quality for gutsy, contemporary styles of playing. The L8 fits all rubber tenor mouthpieces, with the exception of Couf, Berg Larson, Vandoren, and Runyon. Cap included. Rovner Ligatures also greatly improve reed playability. Reeds that are totally unplayable on other ligatures will often perform well with the Rovner. The ability of the Rovner Ligature to extend reed life is unparalleled. More rigid ligatures actually hammer the cane fibers during vibration, eventually destroying the reed's tonal vibrancy. Not so with Rovner; most players find their reeds will play until the tips finally succumb to fatigue and fall apart!Every Rovner Ligature...Permits the reed to vibrate more freely than with conventional metal ligaturesImproves tone, response and intonation of woodwind instrumentsAllows reed to swell and shrink without distorting the reed body, reducing the likelihood of leakage at the facingReduces peculiar modes of vibration that give rise to uneven scales, poor intonation, squeaks and raspinessIf properly used, will provide greater playing ease, considerably extended reed life and fewer rejected reedsIs made of the finest materials obtainableHas a body made of a neoprene polyester fabric that will not stretch or rot and is chemically impervious; is fitted with corrosion-resistant metal fittings
