  • Vandoren Optimum ligatures offer an opportunity to adjust the sound, using the 3 interchangeable pressure plates.


    The ligature has a solid single screw design, to allow quick and precise adjustment, whilst ensuring consistent hold and pressure on the reed.


    Whether playing classical or jazz, the Optimum Ligatures 3 pressure plates will accommodate your style:


    1. A rich, colourful sonority which produces great resonance. Pressure     along the fibre of the reed facilitates an unbelievable blowing ease. Incredible ease of articulation.


    2. A more compact, centred sonority, smooth even sound and extraordinary blowing ease.


    3. The reed vibrates in total freedom, producing a very flexible sound. Greater ease of expression.
