HEXA,CRY04 ligatures, Ambipoly reeds, Omnicaps, Reedcure – reed sanitising reed cases.
The latest design adjustable Cry04 ligature proven to produce more harmonics and projection and ease of production in the altissimo than most, (except for the HEXA) if not all other ligatures. They have a non – stretch space age cord (used to lower space explorer vehicles on to Mars) that can be adjusted to fit all clarinet mouthpieces.
I have recently acquired several Cry04 ligatures in both Bb and Bass models and am offering these free to the first 15 buyers of Bb and Bass clarinets on the Ridenour products page. If you wish to buy a ligature separately the prices are listed below. I have very limited stock of the new HEXA but my prices are competitive and most other retailers are selling these for considerably more plus postage. Studded with Zircons they not only offer superior harmonic range and projection but are really a superb looking product.
The cord has a unique absorbent core that can be soaked to release moisture around the reed tip when the rubber omnicap is attached. Used by me on all recordings for the last 10 years this was a real boon when playing in a dry – studio lacking humidity to keep the reed moist. It meant that I could take time to listen to different recorded “takes” safe in the knowledge my reed was kept moist and hence saved time in re-wetting it.
This version has easily adjustable cords (with either a small allen key or hex screwdriver) so they can be fitted to many sizes of mouthpiece and new design side bars for more stability and improved harmonic transference. Proven to be a real improvement in sound production these ligatures make a huge difference to the depth of sound by giving a full spectrum of the necessary harmonics to make the sound fuller. It is almost like seeing a picture taken on a camera in full focus for the first time instead of being blurred.

Unlike metal and plastic caps the new Omni Cap rubber cap doesn’t make a noise when dropped in rehearsals !! Keeps moisture around the tip of the reed and protects reed without danger of damage when putting it on.

It is priceless and anything we can do to preserve that state is precious – see the video clip below to save yourself from infectious diseases spread by reed – germs
