Vandoren M|O Ligatures
by vandorenusa


• Genuine leather - handcrafted finish. 

• Quick and precise tightening.

• Round and warm sound.

• Three interchangeable pressure plates to subtly modify your sound. An easy-fit Velcro® system makes changing the plates easy while contributing to the flexibility of the entire ligature.

1) Metal plate - a more colorful and compact sound. The combination of a metal plate and a flexible ligature offers the player the best sonic qualities of both materials.

2) Smooth leather plate - made from the same leather as the ligature, it creates a focused, compact sound that is slightly darker.

3) “Supple” smooth leather plate - made from a more supple leather, it gives a rounder, more ample sound.
