The GF System alto saxophone ligature has the quick fit, none-slip properties of other fabric ligatures but the material is designed to allow the reed to vibrate freely with less dampening. Each ligature is adapted to the mouthpiece type and guarantees the optimum position of the reed.
The sophisticated mechanism (left / right-hand thread of the spindle) comes into play by clamping a symmetrical pulling force on the reed, so that it remains in the established position. This means that you will get a more harmonically rich, clearer and fuller sound with this ligature as opposed to the darker warmer sound of other fabric ligatures.
The ligature also has imprinted crosshairs on the tape which facilitates fitting and aligning the reed correctly.
