The Bonade 2250U inverted Bb clarinet ligature is a classic design from celebrated clarinetist Daniel Bonade that has been liberating clarinetists' tone for over 60 years. Made from nickel plated metal with a two screw closure, this iconic ligature holds your reed firmly in place while allowing it to vibrate freely across its length and width. The result is a clarinet that sings with a voice that's 20 to 30% bigger, more resonant, and dynamically expressive. Treat your clarinet, and your audience to the legendary performance of the Bonade 2250U inverted Bb clarinet ligature.
Two-Screw Design Provides a Customized Fit
The Bonade 2250U's two screw design means you can adjust the ligature to provide the perfect amount of pressure for your reed and embouchure. Tighten the screws for more resistance and a focused tone, or loosen them for an airier, more flexible response. Once set, the nickel-plated metal construction maintains a consistent feel and minimizes adjustment between performances.
Promotes Full, Even Vibration Across the Reed
Most ligatures clamp down on a reed unevenly, muting its vibration. The Bonade 2250U's inverted design, by contrast, contacts the reed at its outer edges, allowing it to vibrate fully across its length and width. The result is a tone that's bigger, richer, and more resonant, with a wider dynamic range. Notes sing and swell without restraint, and your clarinet's voice cuts through the mix in ensembles.
An Elegant Solution with Timeless Appeal
Beyond its impressive performance, the Bonade 2250U is a work of art. Its polished nickel-plated metal construction and minimalist yet robust design epitomize clarinet esthetics. An elegant solution for any clarinet, the Bonade 2250U inverted Bb clarinet ligature makes a sophisticated statement on stage or in the studio. For over 60 years, it has been the mark of clarinetists dedicated to achieving nothing less than the fullest expression of their instrument's voice.
