Our own ligatures and caps are now available for LL tenor and HB Alto. These are inverted screw design in gold lacquer (screw on top and band around the reed, as with BG and Rovner soft ligs) This lig also fits the P baritone.

FF Fortissimo Ligatures

These have a single, high tensile steel wire that is never in contact with the mouthpiece.The wire is attached to a plate (various types) which holds the reed and a small rubber foot that positions the tightening screw on the other side of the mouthpiece. I have tried them and find tone and response to be very good. However, I do find the placement of the ligature a little awkward, but this would be no problem once the system had become familiar. The advantage of these ligatures is that you only need TWO for all sizes of mouthpiece from the the very smallest sopranino through to a fat bass sax.

AN02 for mouthpieces up to alto sax
AN05 for mouthpieces from alto up to the largest mouthpiece you are likely to come across.
These ligatures come with various adaptors and caps for different mouthpieces.
