Description

A Performance-Enhancing "Next Generation" Model. With Mass Loaded™ Resonating Ribs™ for an effortless response and powerful sound!

This ligature utilizes Rovner's exclusive Mass Loaded technology featuring weighted elements which tune the ligature's resonance band below the pass band of the instrument.

No other ligature has a big, warm, and responsive tone with such a phenomenal degree of control. Played softly (pianissimo) or loudly (double fortissimo), this ligature yields a tremendous evenness of scale in the most effortless manner. Capable of converting a thin, bodiless sound into something with substance and warmth, this ligature will amaze with it’s performance.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE

HARD RUBBER/PLASTIC MOUTHPIECES

If you have a standard sized hard rubber or plastic mouthpiece (such as a Yamaha 4C or Selmer C*), you will want to select the following sizes: 

  • Soprano = P-1RVS
  • Alto = P-1RL
  • Tenor = P-2R
  • Baritone = P-3R (except in the case of Otto Link, Meyer, Vandoren V16 and other slimmer style baritone mouthpieces)
METAL MOUTHPIECES

Metal mouthpieces can vary a lot in size depending on the brand, but the majority of well known manufacturers will take the following sizes: 

  • Alto = P-1M
  • Tenor = P-2M
  • Baritone = P-3ML

The main exception to this rule is Metal Otto Links, which take the following sizes: 

  • Alto = P-3ML 
  • Tenor = P-3ML
  • Baritone = No size available. We recommend the Rovner Dark "3MVL"

Please Note: Despite Rovners extensive list of options, there are occasionally mouthpieces where the correct size is not immediately obvious. This is particularly true of baritone and bass mouthpieces, which can vary in size considerably depending on make. If you are at all unsure about which ligature would be best for your mouthpiece, please get in touch via help@sax.co.uk and we'll be happy to help you!
