A Performance-Enhancing "Classic" Model
The Original Rovner® Ligature!
Who Plays It?
The original Dark launched the fine line of Rovner® ligatures in 1974, and introduced an innovative approach to ligature design. It is especially enjoyed by the classical player,and despite many imitators, continues to be our best-seller. For decades it has also been the "go-to" ligature for music educators, knowing they can recommend it with complete confidence that a Rovner® ligature is just the thing to help developing players move to the next level of performance.
Improves tone, response, and intonation of woodwind instruments.
Rovner ligatures feature a double-textured body with new T-Process polymer impregnation that permits the reed to vibrate more freely than with conventional metal ligatures. Fitted with corrosion-resistant metal fittings, the unique design allows reed to swell and shrink without distorting the reed body, reducing the likelihood of leakage at the facing, and peculiar modes of vibration that give rise to uneven scales, poor intonation, squeaks and raspiness.
The Dark Series Ligatures assist in producing a full, centered tone comparable to that of the old string technology. Classical performers especially enjoy the warm sound.
