The E. Rousseau all brass metal ligature for alto saxophone was specifically designed to fit all major mouthpiece designs, including E. Rousseau, Selmer, Vandoren and many others.
The material selected is .016” brass with a single screw. A single screw allows for even tension to be applied to the reed. Brass material at this specific thickness makes it both flexible and strong, with a positive impact on the sound.
The shape of E. Rousseau metal ligature is trapezoidal to focus holding power from screw to reed. Four relief areas have been provided to further promote response.
E. Rousseau metal ligatures are designed for and work exceeding well on most brands of hard rubber and plastic alto saxophone mouthpieces.
* Metal ligatures for S/T/B saxophones are currently in development
Some players prefer ligatures of more supple materials. The challenge is to develop the appropriate flexible ligature that enhances every performance.
The E. Rousseau FLEX Ligature is a specially-developed ligature material designed for all (S/A/T/B) saxophone mouthpieces. The single gold-plated and lacquered brass screw provides perfect tension to the reed surface for stable positioning and control of sound. Strategically placed “sound slots” provide for perfect pressure reed to mouthpiece fit. Specially grooved reed-grip technology combined with vent holes for visual alignment help you get the most out of your reed. A leather grain appearance and gold metal medallion provide a distinctive finish. The E. Rousseau FLEX ligature is available for all S/A/T/B saxophones. It fits E. Rousseau, Selmer, Vandoren and practically all other mouthpiece brands.
