Florian Popa Ebony Concert Ligature Bass Clarinet
Florian Popa’s Ebony Concert Ligature for Bass clarinet is handcrafted in ebony that is over 100 years old, specially sourced and chosen for its acoustic benefits. Specifically designed with the classical player in mind, the Ebony Concert ligature is a patented design which helps to emit a dark timbre.
With Popa’s signature twist and fix motion to attach your reed to the mouthpiece, you can save time in the instrument assembly phase. Creating a friction fit, this allows for an even pressure distribution on your mouthpiece to create fluidity between the vibrations from your reed and your clarinet.
This completely handcrafted circular ligature offers a flexibility of tonal colours, with great resonance and harmonic richness. A great example of Popa’s drive to create luxury products with acoustics, design and materials at the forefront.
- Handmade with carefully selected ebony
- One Piece- Twist fix
- Due to the one-piece design of this ligature, they are designed to fit individual mouthpiece brands. (Please contact us if you have a mouthpiece from different manufacturers listed so as to get the best fit).
