 deQuelery hard rubber ligature
Author: NOLA Ken

There seems to be a rash of postings on ligatures lately. So I'll add another. I just received a deQuelery hard rubber ligature I got from the Netherlands. I learned about it on the company's listings on Etsy of all places, although they have a web site (https://dequelery.nl/en/). Oddly, this model is not shown on their web site. The clarinet ligature shown there appears to be of the slip-fit type. The one I bought on Etsy is a single screw inverted design someting like a Rovner dark but much heavier in construction and appears to be a CNC product. It has four small rails apparently designed to be the contact point for the mouthpiece and a flat rail that holds the reed against the mouthpiece. I've spent a little time cycling through it and three other ligatures, the Rovner Dark, Rovner Light, and Luyben. Each one does in fact give me a slightly different playing experience with a Legere European Cut reed and a vintage Bonade hard rubbber mouthpiece. The Rovner Dark is definitely darker and more "covered". The Rovner Light is bit brighter and sweeter. The Luyben just gives more pop and depth to the sound than either of the Rovners, a bit more dark than the Rovner Light but not as much so as the Rovner Dark. Cleaner articulation and a bit more ummph. The deQuelery is a lot like the Luyben on a touch of steroids. Very clean articulation, more powerful sound than the Luyben. The first time I played it I was a bit blown away with how loud it is. I haven't tried it with a cane reed yet.

Both the Luyben and the deQuelery share one issue for me: I find that it is a bit tricky to remove the mouthpiece to change instruments without the ligature and reed slipping. Not a problem for people who don't have to switch a mouthpiece to different instruments in midstream.
