Virginie FONTAINE Ambassadrice Ligature JLV pour saxophone et clarinette


Saxophoniste professionnelle



" La ligature JLV, c'est une sensation de liberté !

J'ai immédiatement été fascinée par la ligature JLV : l'anche est libre, l'émission est facile et le son est riche dans tous les registres et toutes les dynamiques. 
Adoptée aujourd'hui sur l'ensemble de mes saxophones, je continue, depuis 2014, à faire confiance à cette ligature et à son inventeur, doté d'une disponibilité passionnée. 

Une belle invention, bravo !  "
