Ligatures are an important factor in playing.
Because the ligatures is used to wrap the reed and mouthpiece together to keep the breath parallel. The reed will vibrate more, and the easier it will be to blow, the louder it will be, and the stronger the tension will be.
On the contrary, if the reed is too tight, it will directly affect the amplitude of the reed.
Thus affects the tension the size and the timbre.
Single-screw ligatures copper plate after thickening vibration is very good. It’s cost-effective and affordable.
The action of the double screw ligatures maintains the balance of the force and fully acts on the reed to make the reed vibrate more fully.
The choice of the ligatures directly determines the sound quality of the saxophone.
