The revolutionary Olegature saxophone & clarinet ligature is the result of a revolutionary new level of understanding of woodwind acoustics. The ligature is the most important piece of equipment on any single-reed instrument. Though there are hundreds of ligature designs on the market (leather, plastic, hard metal, and so on), the Olegature ligature has been scientifically proven to produce the richest harmonic range of them all.
Unlike other ligatures, Olegature's patented chain mesh design maximizes the reed’s natural harmonic modes and brings dampening to the minimum physically possible. This results in vast improvements to the timbre, response, intonation, and power. Musicians and listeners often describe the sound as having a fuller "presence", or the way hearing live music sounds more "alive" than a radio recording.
The Olegature's sensitivity to screw tightness allows the musician to create a deeper, darker sound, the brightest, sharpest sound, and everything in between. This makes the Olegature an excellent choice for musicians who perform both as soloists and in group settings.
Available for all sizes of saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces, the Olegature is traditionally made with a brilliant, shiny gold finish. Olegatures with silver, antique copper, or black nickel finishes are available for custom orders. Each comes in a beautiful case with an anti-slip ligature grip and a helpful instruction manual.
