Vandoren Leather Ligatures - Plastic Cap
The single screw on top of the ligature, in gold-gilded tightens the ligature evenly and precisely. Made of high quality genuine leather, carefully and skillfully sewn in the hand-crafted tradition, to work in complete harmony with the reed and mouthpiece. Leather, a living material, gives an ideal combination of rigidity and flexibility. Its elasticity absorbs the higher harmonics which often cause a sound to be bright or harsh. It also comes into contact with a larger surface area of the mouthpiece, creating a more focused, compact sound. The leather ligature is supplied with a wooden support in order to help it maintain its shape when not in use. An easy-fit Velcro® system makes changing the plates easy while contributing to the flexibility of the entire ligature.
Three interchangeable pressure plates to subtly modify your sound:
1.Metal plate for a more colorful and compact sound. The combination of a metal plate and a flexible ligature offers the player the best sonic qualities of both materials.
2. Smooth leather plate made from the same leather as the ligature, it creates a focused, compact sound that is slightlydarker.
3. Supple smooth leather plate made from a more supple leather, it gives a rounder, more ample sound.
Supplied with a plastic cap.
