Description

Only fits standard "fat" ebonite/wooden mouthpieces.

THE PURE BRASS Ligature has been designed for a perfect match with hard rubber and wooden mouthpieces. The stainless steel wires of the original Ultimate have been replaced by a brass brace. Its suppleness makes it fit your mouthpiece smoothly. The tightening is assured by a single top screw for ease of use. The contact with the reed is assured by a solid brass pressure plate providing more resistance and a centred resonance.

The longitudinal contact with the mouthpiece by brass resonators and rolls guarantees free vibrations. All this produces a deeper tone with well balanced resistance and great projection.

The "Pressure Plates" set of the original "Ultimate Ligature" can also be used with the "Pure Brass Ligature".

Level expander included with every small size Francois Louis ligature. The purpose is to allow a better fit with smaller size mouthpieces.

Staff Review The entire Marmaduke range are extremely well made & designed pieces. The Jazz Alto is one of the closest sounding mouthpieces I have found to the classic vintage NY Meyer. I felt that though it was not to be as warm as a Meyer it did offer a slightly brighter edge & rather greater flexibility. When pushed this piece really has a lot of punch; ideal for most gigging alto sax players o…
