This is the best ligature I have tried so far. It gives me wonderful and clear sound as well as good articulation. The sliding up the mouthpiece problem is easily fixed when you moist the reed well enough and slightly push down on the ligature when you are tightening the screw. And after a while you don't even need to do that, it will just stay still. It is an awesome ligature and the price is not bad either

The Bb Clarinet Bonade Inverted Ligature is a good, low cost ligature. However, I have had a problem with them not fitting my mouthpiece correctly. They work for a while and then become stripped somehow, and slip up the mouthpiece, no longer holding my reed. Also, one of the Bonades I received had a manufacturing flaw in it (I showed it to my instrument repairman). I gave up finally and switched to the Luyben Clarinet Ligature (very low cost, and good sound quality, great for students because it can't be bent - it's plastic!) and then the Vandoren Optimum (a very pricey alternative, but a wonderful investment if you are serious about the instrument). The most important thing is to try out a whole bunch of ligatures, and pick the one with the best sound.

Don't buy

By 

from Yukon, Ok

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

I was trying different ligatures this past June and loved how this bonade one made me sound. It gives you an open and free sound BUT, it started to slide up. Now I have many scratches on my mouthpiece and no matter how tight I make the screws, the ligature moves and my reed is in a strange place. If these issues were fixed I would recommend this ligature. Until then, don't buy.

slips up

By

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

Didn't have much of a problem with it slipping the first few times I played on it (I use a Vandoren M15), but within a week or two I just could not get it to stay on the mouthpiece at all. The reed completely came off in my mouth once while using it. When it does work, it's great. The other 95% of the time it's useless. Waste of my money, honestly.

One in a Million

By 

from Mokena, IL

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

I purchased this ligature upon the recommendation of a former teacher who had studied with Robert Marcellus and swore by the inverted model. She recommended it with the warning "You really have to go to the store and try all of them to find the right one." Had I listened to her, I would've been more satisfied, but I simply ordered one and slapped it on my clarinet. These ligatures are prone to slipping and sliding, frequently popping off as you're playing if it is just the slightest bit too tight. You can stretch and bend them, but the stretch only holds for a few days. A good ligature seems to be one in a million. Try before you buy.

Absolutely the best

By

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

As a young professional I have tried many MANY ligatures of all kinds and price ranges. Though the low price may deceive you, a good Bonade ligature surpasses every other ligature I have ever tried. One thing to note, they do tend to be inconsistent. If you are a professional or advanced university student, I would recommend purchasing many (AT LEAST 7) and then picking the ones that are best. For beginner and intermediate students, you really only need one. I started on Bonade as a beginner and now return to Bonade as an advanced player. Great product.

Slips

By

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

I have purchased only these ligatures for years and have never had a problem. The most recent one I purchased earlier this year just started sliding up the mouthpiece on it's own. It does not hold the reed in place at all. My fellow clarinetist in the orchestra mentioned the same problem with his Bonade. I am very disappointed that I will have to try something else.

Bonade is problematic

By 

from Gilbert, AZ

Site Member

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

I purchased the Bonade ligature after reading that it had a great sound and was affordable. What wasn't mentioned in the reviews I read was that it slips on the mouthpiece. Mine slipped so much that it was unplayable. It also left scratches in my expensive mouthpiece which I found very unsatisfactory. Not recommended.

Bonade Clarinet Ligature

By 

from Marshfield, WI

Site Member

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

As I was tightening the screws, the ligature started moving up the mouthpiece. No matter how I tried to hold it in place, by the time the screws were tight, I could pull the ligature right off the top of the mouthpiece with no effort. It shouldn't be that hard to screw on a ligature.

A solid value!

By

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

I have owned 3 Bonade Bb ligatures throughout my musical career. My first two were inverted, and both of them were stepped on by fellow students and crushed. I have noticed that some of the inverted ligatures tend to "ride-up" on your mouthpiece. If this happens to you, return the ligature at once. my current ligature is front-facing and hence has no 'riding' problems. The ligature has a solid sound and is an excellent value. Bonade is indeed a professional level ligature, in fact, two members of the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra use these ligatures, as does Karen Meffert-Nelson, the principle clarinet and bass clarinet player for the Minnesota Opera.

Bonade Ligature Over Hyped

By 

from Washington, NC

Site Member

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

I have been playing a Bonade Clarinet Ligature since 1956. It is an okay ligature, but nothing as fine and wonderful as the advertisements. The PROS are - the ligature holds the reed on the mouthpiece without it changing position or even falling off to the floor! The construction and finish is superb. The biggest draw back (CON) is that the ligature is delicate and will bend very easily.

This is the standard

Comments about Bonade Clarinet Ligatures & Caps:

This is the best ligature for the money. I've played on this since the end of high shcool (now a junior music major) and its kept me happy for a long time. I also own a Vandoren Optimum, the Bonade is lighter, less fragile, and less expensive with a very similar sound and feel. Get the inverted version. This one will scratch up the front of your mouthpiece and slide off when you first get it. Put some scotch tape in the front inside of the ring and that will fix both problems. Great bargain
