The Marc Jean Ligature
A vibrant innovation!
Five years of research exploring the influence of sound waves and vibrations on clarinets and saxophones reeds affixed to the mouthpiece led to the creation of the unique Marc Jean Ligature...
The sound quality improvement generated by this redesign reversed ligature is surprising. The positioning of wooden sticks to support the reed allows it to vibrate in perfect symbiosis throughout its length, providing stunning tone. The conception of The Marc Jean Ligature creates a significant amplification of the undulatory movement, bringing out the qualities of the instruments and its mouthpiece, resulting in:
· A quicker, even immediate response;
· A more open, clean and very centered tone;
· A clearer, deeper and stronger sound, and more stable notes all along the scales;
· A general improvement of the playing.
Your instrument and mouthpiece sound qualities are therefore amplified. You will notice added volume, greater presence, and a rounder and greater depth of sound.
While tuning, the ligature also remains stable on the mouthpiece and many states that the reeds performs better.
Each Marc Jean Ligature is unique and had its own serial number. Hand made in our workshop near Montreal, Canada, this patented innovation is comprised of top quality brass. Screws and nuts are imported directly from France.
Many were stunned by the results produce by this new ligature and 90% of our clients who tried it, bought it … So try it too and send us your comments!
The Marc Jean ligature: simply and harmoniously applying physics… for your delight!
