For decades, the original Rovner Dark Ligature has been the "go-to" ligature for music educators, knowing they can recommend it with complete confidence that a Rovner ligature is just the thing to help developing players move to the next level of performance.
Rovner Ligatures also 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!
The Dark Series Ligatures assist in producing a full, centered tone comparable to that of the old string technology. Classical performers especially enjoy the warm sound.
Includes a Rovner Cap. Made in the USA.
