              Comments about Ultimate Ligature Francois Louis Saxophone Ligatures:

              Have played many mouthpieces as well as ligatures over past 30 years. Present mouthpiece is a yanagisawa 7, that I modified with machined brass baffle I've built into it. It is bright, projects, and has a excellent cutting edge to the sound. Played many ligatures including, Selma three band, Yani ligature, rovners, all performed well, purchased the francois louis with brass rods and found it not only was equal to the best of the ligatures which were the Selma, and Yani but outperformed them in both low and altismo registers. Low Bb was never more pure or easier to achieve with least amount of breath, and altismo would be a similar comment. I am totally sold on this ligature. The only negative comment would be on movement on the metal mouthpiece in adjusting for tunning. Unlike other ligatures where you can adjust by gripping the ligature with the mouthpiece, you have to learn to tune by holding at the base of the mouthpiece with thumb and forefinger moving mouthpiece on neck of horn. This is however a small price to pay for added control and tone that this ligature adds to the musicans playing experiece. For those interested, the reed I play on is a fibrecell number 2,5
