  The Marc jean Ligature
 
  Our second generation of Marc Jean Ligatures II have been improved in many ways. The sound enlargement generated by the very thick piece of grenadilla wood (clarinet wood) replacing the 2 wooden sticks is phenomenal.  The precision obtained by our new CNC router guaranties a perfect symmetry on every piece of wood.
The new ligature model was designed to enable the reed to vibrate even more freely.  As a result, there is less resistance when blowing into the instrument and less air is required to produce the sound. Low notes can be played effortlessly at a whisper and a larger, richer tone results.


The Marc Jean ligature II generates a very dark, warm and very open sound which is more powerful than ever. You will notice an even emission in all registers, ever more free blowing and surrounded by a multitude  of rich harmonics. Some pro players reported being able to reach 3 and 4 new higher notes when using this new ligature.
Even beginning students notice a difference with traditional ligatures. They don't have to force as much to play in all registers and they enjoy the fuller sound.  The screw section is now a one screw type and additional material was added to increase the vibration of the reed that was already outstanding.

You now have the choice between 11 different styles of ligatures for the same mouthpiece, grouped under two versions: The WOODSTOCK and the ARTISTRY.
