 Re: The AK clarinet ligature

I was in Vegas at Kessler's last month and tried one. Super nice folks there. The creator of the ligature is one of the Kessler sons who is also a instrument tech. It's an interesting design and secures the reed very well. I found it very bright for my set up and concept. My thought was that if the contact points were wood instead it might be much better for me. Apparently one of the more famous Backun players really loves it and orders multiples at a time. I fully agree with Ken's comments and also use a string type ligature most of the time. Response was good but not better than my preferred ligature.
