What is the POWER RING® Ligature?
The all new JodyJazz POWER RING Ligature improves upon the original JodyJazz Ring Ligature with an all new design that provides both a significant improvement in performance and greatly enhanced visual appeal.
JodyJazz POWER RING Ligatures are available in two finishes: 24kt gold plated brass and sterling silver plated brass.
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. Jody developed the original ring ligature to provide an elegant solution to the problem with ligatures that dampen vibration of the reed.
The New POWER RING features a concave inner design which reduces the touch points on the reed thereby maximizing reed vibration. There are no moving or added parts, thereby increasing the efficiency of vibration. The increased mass and greater wall thickness of the new POWER RING Ligature, together with its more contoured shape, provides a more solid contact with the reed at the points where they touch. This allows the most freedom and vibration of the reed which in turn also increases the amount of harmonics present, allowing the fullest saxophone sound containing high, mid and low frequencies.
“Besides loving the freer blowing aspect and heftier sound of the POWER RING, I love the pure simplicity of it. I just slide it over the reed and lock it in by pushing down firmly.”
Jody Espina, JodyJazz President and designer of the POWER RING Ligature.
POWER RING Ligature models are now available for most JodyJazz Mouthpiece models including HR*, HR* CUSTOM DARK, DV, DV NY, DV CHI, JET and SUPER JET. The size and taper of each of the POWER RING Ligature models is perfectly designed to be an exact fit with the designated JodyJazz mouthpiece. The POWER RING simply slides over the reed and becomes very secure as it is pushed tightly over the reed.
