OVERVIEW

The reinvention of the classic Harrison H-ligature

The H-Ligature and Cap was conceived as a "retro" version of the famous Harrison ligature used by many of the world's greatest clarinetists and saxophonists, Rico's H-ligature offers the sought-after features of this popular design.
The new H-ligature holds the reed firmly to the table of the mouthpiece assuring better contact and therefore reducing leaks along the side rails. Additional support has been added to the ligature brackets to increase durability.

It's okay.

Comments about Rico H-Ligature for Alto Saxophone:

When I got this ligature in the mail I couldn't wait to try it out! However, once I got it out and tried to put it on my mouthpiece I ran into a problem. The top screw would not unscrew far enough. It stared to unscrew but it was very tight, as if it was cross threaded. When I tried to unscrew it father the metal under the screw started to buck up. I can fit this ligature on my old mouthpiece, a Yamaha 4C, but I cannot get it onto my new Rousseau jdx8. On my Yamaha mouthpiece it seems to play great, but I was very disappointed not to be able to use it on my other mouthpiece.

Good, but has a few flaws

Comments about Rico H-Ligature for Alto Saxophone:

I really enjoy playing on this ligature. It doesn't restrict my playing at all, allowing for a very open sound. I love the feel this gives me while playing in both classical and jazz settings. However, while the ligature plays nicely, it has a few flaws. First of all, It tends to slip around when I move my mouthpiece to tune. (Then again, my cork is pretty tight and could use a sanding.) The second problem is that if you tighten the ligature too much, the thin bands connecting the screws from the bit that holds the reed tends to snap. This area could really use some reinforcement, as I have had two and both of them have snapped in the very same place. Tends to happen right around 6-7 months of owning it, too. I love how it plays, but it could use some improvement.

Comments about Rico H-Ligature for Alto Saxophone:

This ligature is really quite amazing. It makes me happy that companies are finally starting to realize the importance of the ligature. With the Rico H ligature, I realized the importance. This really makes it so much easier to get a ring out of your instrument. It seems to me that it makes the most efficient use of your air. When I used it on my classical set up (currently a Selmer Soloist C*), I found that it was almost exact to to the Oleg. This is great though because the Oleg is almost 3 times the price of the H. However, with my jazz setup (a worked on Jody Jazz HR 6m), I found it to be totally unbeaten by any other ligature. All in all, I highly recommend the H ligature because of its efficiency and its extremely low price. It doesn't get much better.
