    I could not wait to write this review…I ordered this ligature plus a VD Java Jazz Mouthpiece…the ligature arrived today and the MP will be tomorrow so I have an opportunity to see the improvement in increments instead of slapping both parts on the horn at the same time and not knowing which part gets the credit for the improvement…so since so far I have only the ligature I put it on…I can’t even describe the improvement from just a ligature!! I’ve always struggled with the low notes meaning C# and below…NOT ANYMORE!! I now can play those as soft or as loud as a I want without honking…I can not believe there would be such a difference from just a ligature!! I can’t wait to slap that VD Java Jazz when it arrives tomorrow!! Also the Altissimo although I didn’t have a problem with now they are crisp and precise…can’t wait for the Java mouthpiece to arrive and see how much even better it’s going to sound and play!Read more

    I love this Vandoren sax ligature. I am a newbie to saxophone playing and had no idea that a good ligature could make such a difference. Compared to my cheap previous ligature ( which broke after 7 months of use), the Vandoren one makes it much easier for me to hit both the high notes and low notes. Also tones in the mid range sound better. It is as if my reed is more responsive – like the reed is a happier camper and wants to play! Sure this ligature costs more, but it’s worth it. It makes playing the saxophone even more fun.Read more

    It works great on most Reed’s I use. It does not hold slim reeds like the legere signature series but for the natural and thicker synthetics it works great!Read more

    UPDATE: I loved it while it lasted but that was actually less than one year. The thread became stripped. i don’t believe I was terribly rough with it. I do believe the metal used is on the soft side and can easily become stripped. So knocked off a star for fragility. I may get another one one of these days. If so, I’ll super careful about over-tightening it, that’s for sure. ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————- I have a number of alto ligatures, the Vandoren M/O reviewed here, a Bonade regular (not inverted), a Rovner “dark”, an F. Louis “Ultimate”, and at some point an Optimum (long lost). I like the new Vandoren best, though the Bonade and Rovner are good in their own right. The M/O gives me the bite of the Bonade but with a bit more body, a more “centered” tone in a sense. I think the tone is a little more flexible with this new lig overall. The Bonade is quite bright, and the Rovner very mellow and dark. (I don’t like the F.Louis “Ultimate” – very hard to get the reed held evenly and very easy to not knock out of wack once you do.) I do like the way it hugs the reed in place too. Not the cheapest – but worth it.Read more

    If your young musician is having trouble with “squeaking” or poor tone, I highly suggest this ligature. I bought this same Vandoren brand and design for both my sons who are playing the clarinet and saxophone. The ligature is notched out for the reed, and only two points of contact touch the reed, so it doesn’t inhibit vibration as much as the usual included ligatures. The single screw makes it really easy to install and remove, which promotes cleaning the mouthpiece (something my two boys were avoiding which is just nasty after a while). I also recommend Bari Star artificial reeds. The combination of the Bari reeds and the Vandoren ligature is a literal game-changer for a young musician, with immediate, noticeable improvement.Read more

    Great ligature, comparable to the some very expensive ones. Tried couple back to back and this one offered the same tone quality as optimum and others in the same price range. Ended up giving it to my beginning student who loves how it helps with placing Reed easier.Read more

    Holds well. The reed stays put even when adjusting the mp angle. IMO it woks wonderfully.Read more

    El producto remitido no se corresponde con lo que el anuncio. He tenido oportunidad de comprobar la calidad en un tienda física y puedo asegurar que el producto recibido parece de plástico. De hecho, el tornillo ES de plástico y además de otro color que el resto de la abrazadera.Read more

    Great ligature. Does its job, unfortunately the cap is a bit tight and takes a bit of getting used to. Make sure you dont over tighten it like i did, because it will damage your mouthpieceRead more

    Was not sure about the authenticity of the product because of the price. It’s the real deal. Expect a noticeably improved sound quality with this ligature.Read more
