Rovner are a well-established, US based ligature manufacture. They have always been popular with students, teachers, and professional musicians alike, due to their reliability, and excellent quality.
A variation on the original best-selling Dark launched in 1974, the Light is an excellent alternative for players who may find the Dark a little too ‘covered’.
Particularly suitable for the contemporary or jazz clarinettist, this ligature is free-blowing, and produces a responsive, lively sound. This ligature offers a full range of musical expression for jazz improvisation, so is designed ultimately for the player desiring a more contemporary sound. The body of the ligature is made of a flexible neoprene/polyester fabric, that will not stretch or rot, and is chemically impervious. The single adjusting screw, which is corrosion-resistant, is designed to reduce the time and hassle of adjusting traditional ligatures.
The Rovner L5 Bb Clarinet Ligature:

Anyone looking for a responsive, lively sound, at an affordable price, should definitely consider this Rovner ligature for their Bb clarinet playing.
