The JodyJazz Power Ring Ligature features an all new design that provides both a significant improvement in performance and greatly enhanced visual appeal. Taking the essence of his original ring ligature design, Jody Espina has added greater thickness and heft together with more pronounced side curves and extreme contoured edges both top and bottom. Like the original ring ligature, the new Power Ring ’s self-locking CNC machined taper touches on three points only; the left and right side of the reed and on top of the mouthpiece. There are no moving or added parts, designed to increase the efficiency of vibration.
