Outstanding Ligature

popmusicfan, amazon.com
9 November 2011
  • Summary: Back when the Rovner ligatures first came out, they were widely touted as an alternative to string ligatures. In other words, as a modern alternative to the kind of ligatures that were used back in the eighteenth century, during the formative years of the clarinet. Over the years, Rovner expanded to "light" and "dark" variations (tone color, not the color of the material) of the original. The 1R model works just as well as Rovners always have.

Very Satisfied

Ezra Schwartz, amazon.com
25 April 2011
  • Summary: I've started to take Clarinet lessons about 4 months ago - Never player an instrument before, and at close to 50 thought it was time to try. Generating consistent sound without frequent squeaking has eluded me and caused quite a discomfort to anyone around... But I carried on, attributing the squeaks to my lack of experience. My teacher suggested I change the ligature. The one she is using is quite expensive so I ended up getting this one because of the good reviews.

Good deal. . I bought 2.

Sangman Hahn, amazon.com
25 March 2011
  • Summary: Though I can't evaluate the accoustical effectiveness of this ligature much because this is my first non-metal ligature, I got it at a good deal (about $27 for 2, including shipping). . One oddity in the design of this product is that it doesn't fit along the lattitudinal indicator lines on the mouthpiece, so it is skewed when it is installed.

A "must" for the enthusiastic student

AlecG, amazon.com
20 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this ligature, along with my Selmer Prelude CL771. Two things helped in my decision... a. The metal ligature included with the original instrument usually sounds a little "cranky" (at least for the beginner) b. Metal ligatures usually leave marks in the mouthpiece Even as a beginner, I can perfectly identify the difference between the metal and this ligature... Sound comes out with a much more fulfilling and pleasant body.

Rovner Ligature changes sound

Robert A. Arnold, amazon.com
11 January 2011
  • Summary: This product is amazing. You can actually tell the difference in sound once you put the Rovner Ligature on. High notes that you could not hit before you can now hit with ease. My son has a Conductor Clarinet that I purchased off of Amazon and this Ligature changes the entire sound of the instrument.

Clarinet ligature

Wendy Reinert "Hard Rock Girl", amazon.com
17 January 2010
  • Summary: I love this so much I bought a second one. I have 3 clarinets and when I would have to play my clarinet some where I used to switch my mouth piece and ligature. I got the idea to get 2 new mouth pieces and ligatures that are all the same. All so I never have to switch them.

Rovner is the best

Abigail M. Hodson, amazon.com
18 June 2009
  • Summary: My private teacher suggested that I get the Rovner 1r dark ligature when my old one broke. It immediately improved my tone, and allowed me to hit those high notes with ease. I recommend this ligature for all clarinet players, begginers or proffesional.
