Bois Classique Clarinet LigaturesA ring-style ligature that allows for the ultimate reed vibration and is very free-blowing. The ligature only touches on the outside edges of the reed and the backside of the mouthpiece, preventing any dampening and improves the harmonics in your tonal quality. An inner o-ring prevents any scratches to your mouthpiece, and also provides a strong hold to prevent slipping.Designed by a musician, these ligatures slip accurately into position and do not slip or stretch. The reed vibrates freely with no dampening. Each lig is studio-engineered to the highest standard of intonation and tonal quality.

I used to use an old Selmer ligature which made my clarinet sound stuffy. Then I saw the Bois booth at the Missouri All-State convention and became very interested because I was searching for a new ligature. The Bois representative (actually she was the creator of the ligature) kindly let me try it and take it to one of the All-State rehearsals before I bought it. Lo and behold, within a few days 12 of the 24 clarinet players had bought a Bois.
The Bois really frees up your sound and allows for maximum vibration. The Bois touches the reed on 1 point and the mouthpiece on 1 point, which makes for a freer sound. The maker of the ligature told me that she had modeled it after the Ultimate ligature.
The ligature is made out of a really durable material and is practically unbreakable. It simply slides onto the reed and mouthpiece and it keeps the reed snug. Now you don't have to deal with the ugly metal ligature marks on your reed.
I find this ligature to be very similar to the Bonade in sound. So if you like the Bonade, you'll like this. The difference in this and the Bonade is that the Bois has a slightly freer sound.
Also, when my teacher walked further away while I was playing, she said it produced nice overtones.
She's also coming out with wooden Bois ligatures soon. Cocobolo, Rosewood, and many more.
The smart cap is the same cap that comes with the Ultimate. You can put water on the little pad to keep your reed moist. (I personally have never tried it, but it may be a feature that you would like.)
I highly recommend this ligature. Hope you like it!
I usually play on the BG standard ligature or traditional gold plated if I need an extra projection and thought know I have the best let's stick to it. Forget it the Bois does it all. I wanted to use my shipping a bit more as I would pay the same for it glad I ordered the Bois. It is almost as dark as the BG standard but with the projection of the Traditional. Open up your sound and make more reeds playable. In less than 5 seconds you can take off your reed and put it back on. I've tried BG Standard, revolution and traditional, Vandoren leather, master, Klassik and Optimum, Rico H, Ligaphone orchestral and universal, Francois louis ultimate, Luyben, Rovner EVO5 and Eddie Daniels, Olegature and Bay Rohdium. Some are ridiculously expensive and some difficult to use but the Bois is inexpensive and extremely easy to use. The Bois is now on the top of my list followed by BG but at the very bottom is Rovner (kills the vibration of the reed and sound thin).
I have lots of ligatures and tried many more! I've kept several ligs for playing different literature. I USED a Bonade most of the time also some several major leather strap type brands, well most of them. With the Bois I'm finding that it lets me do what I need when I need it. My first impression was that it had a wonderful sound but the articulation suffered? Well I know that when trying out a new mouthpiece you need to use new reeds. The same goes for this lig break several reeds in on it and the articulation is even easier!!! Not to mention the Tone and Flexibility!!! I don't use the cap it comes with, but the sound and ease I have make me a happy clarinetist! Give it a chance, you might be surprised!
I got the Bois because I was curious if such a minimal approach would work.
I have been playing a Harrison Hurtz ligature for many years and still keep it in my case as my primary.
But I find myself reaching for the Bois Ligature more and more because I can't get over how well it works. It's so easy to use and it's especially helpful with auditioning reeds. The Clarinet size works well on my Selmer Alto Sax Hard Rubber mouthpiece too (But check available sizes for your combination) It's got to be a must for players who double.
I've always liked minimalist ideas. I needed to upgrade (and fast!) from the stock plastic Yamaha mpc/cheap metal lig combo I got with my bass. I now use the BOIS ligature with a Walter Grabner mpc and either Legere (2.75) or Vandoren(3) reeds. The BOIS doesn't seem as compatible with the Legere reeds and requires a bit more fuss to get everything in place and stable. With wood reeds the thing is FANTASTIC! It's simple, quick, VERY solid and has a great sound and feel to it. I ended up giving the Smart Cap to a sax player friend; it doesn't really fit bass clarinet mouthpieces. This is no gimmick and for the price it?s even better. I'd recommend to anybody looking for a no-frills, reliable ligature with great sound and feel.
