Vandoren Leather Ligature

US Taxes included

A ligature from Vandoren made of high quality genuine leather. Carefully and skillfully sewn in the hand-crafted tradition. 

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 slightly darker.

3. Supple smooth leather plate made from a more supple leather, it gives a rounder, more ample sound. 


The Leather ligature is designed to fit on most standard sized ebonite and plastic mouthpieces available for Soprano, Alto and Tenor Saxophone. For Baritone, please be aware that there are two sizes. The standard size fits on "fatter" style mouthpieces such as the Vandoren Optimum and V5. The other size is designed specifically to fit on Vandorens own V16 baritone mouthpieces, which are a lot slimmer in profile. 

If you need any assistance in choosing the correct size for your mouthpiece. Please feel free to contact us via and we'll be happy to help! 

Supplied with a plastic cap.
