Comparison Test

To: John J. Consoli, Chairman

Dear John,

I have tried the ligatures which you brought over and I have made some comparisons for you. It has always been my opinion that the type of ligature used on a clarinet made no difference. I have taught for over 33 years at the high school level and have tried most of the ligatures that have been produced during that time. I found that metal, "four dots", rubber bands, string, etc. all seemed to work the same. Then I tried yours. I have no idea why your ligature works so well, but the high notes respond with ease, and the tone produced is the desired bright-hollow quality of a symphonic clarinetist. The ligature permits an easy free-blowing quality with the reed being used and makes tonguing much easier. Again, I can't explain why it works, but it works!
Here is the results of my comparison tests of your professional model (white), your student model (red), the (Rovner) L5 model (black), the BG model (also black), and a plain metal ligature from Selmer Corporation.
1. (Consoli) Professional Model (white with brass): this ligature provides a bright tone which is very responsive to tonguing and various levels of volume. The high, altissimo, register is clear, easy to produce, a very much in tune.
2. (Consoli) Standard Model (red): This ligature is also free blowing and provides a dark, mellow tone. It is very responsive to tonguing and is easier to control volume on this ligature than the metal type. It is not as good as the Professional Model, but will help a great help to student clarinetists.
3. (Rovner) L5 Model (black): This was stuffier playing and sounding than the (Consoli) Student Model. The tone is dark and did not provide teh ease of tonguing of the (Consoli) Professional and Student Models.
4. BG (black): This ligature provides a bright tone which is very responsive to tonguing and various levels of volume. The high, altissimo, register is clear, easy to produce, a very much in tune. Because this was very much like the (Consoli) Professional Model, I compared one against the other. Although they are very similar, the (Consoli) Professional Model above was rated higher because the tone produced was a little clearer and brighter.
5. Metal Ligature: This ligature played well, but the tone was airy, high notes were hard to produce clearly, and tonguing was difficult and tiring. (And to think this is what I played on for 40 years!)
Thanks, John, for showing me something new and for helping me to sound much better. Best wishes for success with your new product.
Sincerely,
Thomas A. Mosher
