THE INVENTOR, JEAN-LUC VIGNAUD
Jean-Luc Vignaud, inventor of JLV Ligatures, revolutionized the saxophone market. Renowned musician, when he was not playing his instrument, he tried to understand its workings. This is how one day, in his workshop, he became aware of the problem : the ligatures offered on the market were restricting the sound of his instrument. So he decided to take matters into his own hands. And it is after 10 years of research and development that he succeeded in creating the ideal ligature.

Innovation, our DNA.
If our ligatures received the Lépine prize, it is because they provide unparalleled ease of play. When he designed this product, Jean-Luc Vignaud wanted above all to respond to the technical problems he encountered with his instrument.
Professional musician and teacher at the conservatory, he has deepened the theory of the resonance of materials. According to J-L Vignaud, each finish brings a different sound.
And that's what makes the difference !
Whether for our ligatures or our other accessories such as the phonic ring, everything has been thought out to enhance the sound of your instrument and offer you the best playing experience.
