Saxophone Leather Ligature

If you are looking for something more from your sound palette, then there are clearly many different ways in which this can be achieved. Needless to say, one of the options is to try various ligatures, to effect different blowing characteristics and different tonal qualities. Those looking for a warmer tonal range should take a look at this genuine, handcrafted leather ligature from Vandoren. It’s a very free blowing unit, and comes with metal, hard leather and soft leather plates, and it can make a real difference to your sound. Understandably, the metal plate is more responsive than the two leather pieces, but our personal preference was for the hard leather plate that most closely matched the leather of the ligature and gave a more compact and focused sound.
