E. Rousseau Saxophone Ligatures

With over two years in development, E. Rousseau saxophone ligatures were created for players who desire the optimum response from their mouthpiece set-up. The E. Rousseau Metal and FLEX ligatures provide the best choices, not only in reed fit and security, but also in the ability of the mouthpiece to give the player outstanding tone quality, response, projection and dynamic control – all absolutely necessary for superior saxophone performance.

E. Rousseau ligatures were designed to fit all major mouthpiece brands and work exceedingly well to enhance the mouthpiece dynamics. “There is a wonderful presence/resonance in the sonority,” one artist stated. While players may have different results with different set-ups, those incorporating E. Rousseau ligatures have the background of perhaps the greatest influence in the design of the modern saxophone of any player or teacher of his time – Eugene Rousseau.

The history of E. Rousseau mouthpieces in all genres at the highest performance levels shows that its design is superior in the most critical performing situations. Adding an E. Rousseau ligature can provide additional benefits, depending on your performance needs.
