A well-engineered single-screwed ligature that offers maximum resonance 

Precise and rapid tightening; a unique double-track screw mechanism tightens both sides of the ligature equally.

- Vertical and symmetrical tightening:

- Adjusts easily on the mouthpiece

- The reed remains exactly in place 

Whether you're playing classical or jazz, the Optimum Ligature comes with three pressure plates to accommodate your style.

Plate 1: A rich, colorful sonority that produces great resonance. Pressure along the fiber of the reed facilitates an unbelievable blowing ease. Incredible ease of articulation.

Plate 2 : A more compact, centered sonority. Similar to the Vandoren MO ligature. A smooth even sound with extraordinary blowing ease. 

Plate 3 : The reed vibrates in total freedom due to only being held by 4 small contact points. A very flexible sound with greater ease of expression.
