The Ligatures
  1. Precise and rapid tightening, which easily adjusts for any situation
  2. A unique double-track screw mechanism tightens both sides of the ligature equally
  3. Vertical and symmetrical tightening: Adjusts easily on the mouthpiece
  4. The reed remains exactly in place
  5. Neither reed nor ligature are compressed at the sides
  6. A unique vented cap allows reeds to dry quickly
  7. The collar around the mouthpiece remains independent of the area in contact with the reed, allowing the vibrations of the reed to develop without interference
The Interchangeable Plates:
  1. Three interchangeable pressure plates adjust to the sound, style and music being performed
  2. Plate 1: A rich, colourful sonority which produces great resonance; pressure along the fibre of the reed facilitates an unbelievable blowing ease; incredible ease of articulation.
  3. Plate 2: A more compact, centred sonority, smooth even sound and extraordinary blowing ease.
  4. Plate 3: The reed vibrates in total freedom, producing a very flexible sound; greater ease of expression.

Rovner

Rovner Ligatures are some of the finest ligatures available. Woodwind & Brass Ltd. carries a huge range of Rovner ligatures for every instrument, and every playing style.

30 years ago, Rovner was the first manufacturer to patent a non-traditional ligature of this type. All five Rovner models (Light, Dark, Custom MrkIII, Evo and Eddie Daniels) are free playing and responsive, help improve intonation, ease of playing, control and accuracy and give more even scales. Rovner ligatures are also known to extend reed life.

Rovner ligatures hold the reed gently against the mouthpiece with no pressure points - thus there are no rigid constraints on the reed, the reed seats evenly to the facing of the mouthpiece reducing stiffness and increasing tonal clarity. Rovner ligatures are also thought to improve reed playability; reeds which are unplayable on other ligatures will often perform well with the Rovner. Extention of reed life is also a feature - unlike most traditional ligatures, the cane fibres of the reed do not get "hammered" during vibration, but last and last.
