E. Rousseau Metal Ligature for Alto Saxophone
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, with an aperture of 3/16” – 1/8”.
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 trapezoid 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 alto will be available February 2017. Metal ligatures for S/T/B saxophones are currently in development
