Francois Louie Tenor Sax

By 

from Albuquerque NM

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

I have tried many ligatures over the years and all work well. Some plastic ligature fatigue and break. I was drawn to the Francois Louie Ligature for its simple but elegant design. The one draw back that may plague the purchaser is that there just isn't enough thread on the tightening screw for my Guardala metal MP. I am having to build up with reed material to allow tightening. I am disappointed but am keeping and using it at least for now.

It's Worth A Shot

By 

from WInder

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

I was recently playing on a bay golden ligature and a Selmer Concept mouthpiece, and while I did like the tone that was produced, I felt I needed something a little more free blowing. I heard about this ligature and decided to give it a shot. And such a shot it was. Within the first few notes played, the notes were instant. the intonation was clearer, and the sound was better centered. It is also very good for jazz. I am still looking for my ideal setup, but this ligature is a worthwhile buy.

The best ligature I have ever used

By 

from Little Rock, Arkansas

Site Member

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

I've had the opportunity to use this ligature before and knew first hand that they we're outstanding, so I had no hesitation pairing it up with my Claude Lakey Mouthpieces. I put the ligature on the MP...it will only take playing 1 note....3 at the most...to see how great these ligatures are. They allow the reed to vibrate so freely and it opens up the sound/projection of your tone like you won't believe until you try one yourself. Anything less than a 5-star rating would be an insult! I'm ordering another one for my Claude Lakey Tenor MP here tomorrow, just a fantastic ligature.

Nothing else like it

By

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

I've used these ligatures on tenor, alto and soprano for years. Just recently my tenor one that I've owned for about 10 years was damaged. Bought another one without question. It's easy to tell an immediate difference when you test this against other ligatures. The tone is centered more, intonation is improved, it's easier to articulate, volume is increased etc etc. I don't understand how it's all possible but it is.

Over all decent

By 

from Monticello

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

It's a good ligature. Helps produce a good tone, ect, ect. But functionality of it is very low. It's impossible to just slap on the reed and start playing. And if you want to adjust your mouthpiece while it's on the horn, DON'T. You'll screw up your reeds and mouthpiece that way. I've got scratches all over my mouthpiece from this ligature and I've split two reeds down the middle trying to adjust. But other than that, it's a good ligature.

Unreal!

By 

from Boston, MA

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

I just bought this lig to replace the stock lig on my Otto Link STM NY 8 - I am in absolute awe of this product! Immediately, my tone was fattened up, and my control and intonation snapped right into place. I never knew a ligature could make this much of a difference in sound and playability. I play my Otto Link with Vandoren Java 5's, and this setup (combined with this lig) is the most free-blowing combination I have ever played! Worth every cent.

Best Ligature Ever

By 

from New York

Site Member

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

I got this ligature to replace my standard Otto Link lig, and my oh my what a difference. It gave my sound way more of a hearty quality, and allowed me to play with confidence. It's a little tight around the mouthpiece, but other than that it is PERFECT.

Sub par

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

ThiS ligature does exactly as advertised, but you can forget easily adjusting mp placement on the cork. It is uncomfortable and th lig feels cheap. I would recommend a rovner versa x (only available from rovner products.com) or a Vandoren Optimum ligature

Nice Ligature!

By 

from PA

Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

Pretty nice ligature. Low end of the horn like Low C/B/Bb/ tend to speak better for me. Has a great stylish mouthpiece cap! Only done side is it it tends to slip if not on just right. But overall great item!
