Are Rovner ligatures good?

Overall Thoughts. Although Rovner says this ligature has gained a lot of attention from classical players, I would say this ligature would fit well with jazz players as well – especially those who want a punchier sound that will give a hard rubber mouthpiece a bit more edge.

Our first all-metal ligature, the Platinum, is constructed of adurable, highly-tempered, space-age metal alloy, and looks more like a piece of fine jewelry than a woodwind accessory. When the Rovner® Dark was introduced, it broke convention and set a new convention for ligature design and performance.

Does ligature affect sound?

The answer is YES. The sound is generated through the vibrations both of the mouthpiece and the reed, therefore the ligature is a key piece holding both together. The leather ligature or synthetic leather provide a rounder sound while the metal ligature helps us obtain higher volume and projection in the sound.

How do you apply Rovner ligature?

For the initial installation of the ligature, and to help it take a “set” to your mouthpiece, place it over the reed and mouthpiece and then crank the screw on the ligature for a very tight fit.
