OVERVIEW

Improves tone, response, and intonation of woodwind instruments.

Rovner Ligatures greatly improve reed playability. Reeds that are totally unplayable on other ligatures will often perform well with the Rovner. The ability of the Rovner Ligature to extend reed life is unparalleled. More rigid ligatures actually hammer the cane fibers during vibration, eventually destroying the reed's tonal vibrancy. Not so with Rovner; most players find their reeds will play until the tips finally succumb to fatigue and fall apart!

Outstanding!

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

I purchased this as a student clarinetist, and it upgraded my sound immediately and dramatically. I can't say enough good about this ligature, and recommend it without reservation to both students wanting to upgrade their sound as well as intermediate clarinetists. I suppose pro clarinetists will have found their ligature by this time, but this would not be a bad choice to try out.

Economic Upgrade for Beginners

By

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

I recommend this to students in middle school who want to make their sound a little darker and richer. My high school band director preferred this as the "standard" ligature for the clarinet section, I disagreed. It's an inexpensive upgrade from a plain/generic metal ligature that I would recommend for any beginner.

Ok for it's price

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

I've played on a lot of ligatures before. I firsted started out on a standard metal lig, then switched to this. I later tried the Vandoren Optimum, which belonged to a close friend of mine, and the Optimum was better in every way. I tried another Rovner lig as well, the Versa, and it's a very close second to the Optimum. It does give a dark sound, but it's so muffled and unresponsive that I couldn't stand it. I had a much darker sound and a lot less resistance on both the Optimum and Versa. It is better than standard metal ligs, and for $20, it's ok, but I'd much rather play on a lig that uses a pressure plate instead. Save your money.

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

this ligature is good unless you have the right reed i have noticed softer reeds are not good for this thicker are but if you haven't fully developed your embouchure then this is not a good ligature for you

OK at best

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

When I first started playing, I used a standard metal ligature. After a year, I switched to this ligature and noticed an improvement in my sound. When I moved on to high school, I noticed my sound was a lot worse than my two section leaders. I noticed that they were using a Vandoren Optimum. I asked one of them if I could play on it for a little bit, and when I did, I noticed my sound was a lot better. It was a bigger jump in my sound then when I switched to the Rovner Dark. I recommend that if you are looking for a ligature that sounds decent at a low price, then get this. If you're looking to get a great sound for high school, get a Vandoren.

Good But Ok

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

My band teacher decided to purchase six of these for the marching band clarinet section. They are good with responce but when you march around they are not good. If this is for concerts or jazz use it if not don't.

great lig!

By

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

I tried out the Rovner dark lig about two years ago when a friend recommended them to me. Wow! Immediately my tone got a lot warmer; less reedy. Not only is it easier to get a good tone both on sax and clarinet but you get less squeeking and you can really reach those low sub tones, especially on tenor. I use Rovner ligs, Russeau mouthpieces, and Vandoren reeds on all my horns, and people are always impressed with the mellow tones they produce. These ligs make switching from jazz to classical a lot easier, too- no need for a seperate jazz ligature and mouthpiece here. Overall, a highly flexible ligature.

Great Investment

By

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

This piece was a change for the better. All of a sudden, my tone became a lot more focused and more controlled, and it became much warmer and less piercing. Great for classical and ensemble work. Even with jazz, it allows for a great deal of flexibility. In addition, the single screw mechanism makes for easy and fairly precise adjustments, and is particularly handy when holding music, a chair, a stand, and trying to fit a clarinet (while adjusting it), 30 seconds before curtain goes up (believe me, it's happened to me before).

Great Ligature for All Saxes

By 

from South Dakota

Site Member

Comments about Rovner Dark Bb Clarinet Ligature and Cap:

I bought a Rovner Dark-3R ligature a few months ago, and WOW, has this product changed my playing. This ligature has given me a nice, focused, dark tone, perfect for Concert Band. Don't get me wrong though, this is a great ligature for Jazz/Funk groups as well. I will never use metal ligatures again!
