Benjamin CHALAT - JLV Ambassador - JLV Ligature for saxophones

" The JLV Sound ligature is for the saxophonist the key to musical freedom.

Color homogeneity in all registers,
Ease of sound emission and detached,
Lengthening the life of the reeds by its “Resurfacing” qualities,
Development unexampled of the qualities of expression and the possibilities of mode of play,
Customization by an important choice of model.
The JLV Sound ligature represents the excellence of artisanal and artistic know-how. "
