Ligatures hold your reed and mouthpiece together and onto the instrument. Early on, ligatures were made of twine that was wrapped and tied over the reed. Today, ligatures are made of metal and they're carefully crafted to fit securely and be adjusted if necessary. Even today's caps are well-designed and made of flexible materials, so they won't break or chip.
