Ligatures How does a ligature affect the sound ? Musicians frequently ask: Can a ligature really influence the sound of my instrument? Can a small metal or synthetic piece change the color, the projection or the sound? The answer is YES. The sound is generated through the vibrations both of the mouthpiece and the reed, therefore the ligature is a key piece holding both together. The vibrations between the mouthpiece, the ligature and the reed make the notes easier, cleaner and faster to articulate.

Every BG Ligature provides a distinct sound for each situation and style of music

M a d e i n Fr a n c e

The ligature helps the musician to articulate the notes. The material (metal or synthetic), its density, plating, the point of pressure on the reed and many other factors are all decisive when talking about the color of the sound and it’s projection. It suffices to make a simple comparison: if we hit our leg with our hand, we will create a dampened sound, if we hit a table with our hand, we will create a cleaner-brighter sound. The same thing happens when talking about the existing relation between the ligature and the sound that we are going to obtain. The leather

ligature or synthetic leather provides a rounder sound, while the metal ligature helps us obtain higher volume and projection in the sound. These days musicians must have more than one ligature since they will need a different kind of ligature depending on their work or the situation they are in. It is not the same to perform in a small concert hall or in a big auditorium. The needs of a soloist are different than when performing in an ensemble, whether the style is jazz or classical. Every BG Ligature provides a distinct sound for each situation and style of music. Choosing the ligature will depend on the sound that the musician desires, the music he is playing or the auditorium where the concert takes place. BG has studied the acoustics and the behavior of the materials since 1985. BG’s ligatures provide a balanced sound in all registers. Today, all musicians need to have more than one ligature as every ligature satisfies specific needs.


BG Saxophone

Ligatures How to choose a ligature For a long time it was thought that the ligature was to maintain  pressure against the mouthpiece. Nowadays, we know that this is false and that both the mouthpiece and the ligature vibrate, slightly and have an important role in the creation, projection and color of the sound. Each BG ligature provides a different sound for each moment. Therefore, the process of  choosing the ligature is extremely important.  Try different BG ligature models. It is important to  remember that ligatures made out of synthetic leather are preferred when playing in small concert rooms, chamber music, bands and orchestra, etc... On the other hand, metal ligatures are preferred when playing in big rooms, as a soloist, and during those times when you need more volume.  In addition, no matter the model, the presence of gold (plated gold) in the ligatures make the results even better. Remember: All BG ligatures are handmade in France, under strict tolerances (weight, metal surface, design, etc ). All designs are registered.

HOW TO CHOOSE A LIGATURE 1. Play music that you know well with your own ligature first to create your sound reference in the room where you are testing. 2. Under the same conditions, change only one parameter or component at a time and test the new ligature for smoothness in transition between registers, consistent volume and its sound quality in the lower, middle, and upper ranges. 3. At the same time, listen for the subtle differences when playing pianissimo and fortissimo passages. 4. Test how easily you can play staccato. 5. If possible, it is always better to play test with another player who knows your regular sound and can assist you to appreciate the following 3 key points: a-) How you feel while playing b.-) what you hear when you play and c.-) what the audience hears. 6. Try various ligature models.  Different types of ligatures meet differing requirements. 7. Remember: “The best ligature is the one that fits you” - Franck Bichon.

Ligatures Why does BG only make inverted ligatures ? Sound comes from the vibrations of the reed and mouthpiece. We optimize them by using exclusively “one screw” ligatures. Reeds vibrate from top to bottom thanks to empty canals. Any pressure point on the reed has an effect on the sound. Using screws in contact with the reed damages / alters vibrations. Each BG ligature gives different sounds.

“The best ligature is the one that fits you” - Franck Bichon Two musicians playing with the same set up will have different sounds because of the personal way that they blow and hold their embouchure. Depending on what sound you want or what setting you are playing in, this will affect your ligature choice. Always try several ligatures.

Ligatures Fabric ligatures vs Metal ligatures ? Fabric ligatures and metal ligatures cannot be compared. One is not better than the other, they are simply different. Studies done by BG since 1985 have concluded that the type of ligature used depends on the setting: studio or auditorium, rehearsal or performance. The same way we use different type of shoes to go to work, to attend an event or to practice a sport, we will choose a different type of ligature depending on the setting: performance as soloist, chamber music, rehearsal or recording session.

RECOMMENDED Small concert halls Ensemble works Intimate venues Long rehearsal sessions

Ligatures One ligature for each situation & style of music Every musician must have several ligatures because every BG ligature provides a different sound for each situation and type of music. In Fabric Ligatures, the presence of the metal on the base plate increases the brightness and the projection of the sound. With just a rubber base, the warm sound is strengthened. Each ligature satisfies specific needs. Metal ligatures are perfect for big concert halls and for soloists that need more sound. Gold plated provides a bigger response and a rounder sound. Fabric ligatures are recommended for small rooms or when looking for a more intimate sound. They are perfect for ensemble works.

It is recommended that the musician who normally uses metal ligatures changes to fabric ligatures when... - performing in smaller rooms - looking for a more intimate sound

It is recommended that the musician who normally uses fabric ligatures changes to metal ligatures when... - more sound is needed but with the same effort - a brighter sound is required - projecting more is necessary - performing in bigger rooms

Mouthpieces The Alternative For BG, the quality of our products is our first priority. After designing all types of ligatures to improve the sound from the mouthpiece and the reed, BG wanted to offer an alternative for some players unsatisfied with their mouthpieces. Mr. Serge Bichon, Franck's dad, was a formal student of the master Marcel Mule, who created the French Classic school of saxophone. Serge BICHON, now retired, has been teaching at Lyon conservatory, France, and among other students Serge has been the formal teacher of famous artists including Claude Delange and “Habanera Quartet” members, and an independent adviser consultant for famous French reed manufacturer. BG selected ZINNER as our MP maker partner to work on our specific requests to not only supply raw material but to do hand finishing to reach our expectations. Zinner is a German company that provides the raw materials for most popular US hand-made mouthpieces makers. Each and every one of the BG mouthpieces for clarinet and saxophone are hand-machined by an expert who one by one controls their production. The result is a warm and centered sound, with great projection. The homogeneity in every register is simply impressive. The result of the exceptional quality of the raw material used is a very characteristic round sound. With years of confidential testing, we can assure that despite long years of playing, the material stays consistent and BG mouthpiece last much longer than most popular mouthpieces. We offer a selected and limited production to ensure that every BG mouthpiece is really, effectively and individually tested by a professional musician before leaving the BG factory. BG Mouthpieces are perfect for chamber music, ensembles or soloists.

Cleaning Swabs & Care Cloths Why should we keep our instrument clean ? The lack of cleanliness in the wind instrument may severely affect the musician’s health. In a research, presented in November 2013 by the ACAAI (American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology), researchers proved that musicians may develop a chest allergic disease as a result of the fungus that grow inside the wind instruments, due to lack of cleanliness after its use.

The factors that affect health should be reason more than enough to keep our instrument clean M a d e i n Fr a n c e

Known as “Saxophone Lung”, it is a type of pneumonia in which the person affected develops an allergic lung disease when in contact with the fungus that grows inside the wind instruments that are not cleaned after use. Recently, a musician from Atlanta, who admitted to not cleaning his instrument, had a cough and wheezing for over a year. Treatments did not work. The X rays showed that his lungs were in critical condition and even lymphatic ganglion calcified. But this is not new, in 2011, researchers from the university of Tutfs, directed by Dr. Stuart Levy, analyzed 20 wind instruments that were not cleaned correctly and found multiple germs, including the one responsible for tuberculosis, that can remain active from several hours to several days in saxophones, clarinets and oboes. The factors that affect health should be reason more than enough to keep your instrument clean.

27

In addition to this, have we thought about how valuable and important the instrument must be for the musician? The instrument is the musician’s work tool. He will spend many hours of work, cooperation and company with it. A work tool well taken care of, will provide much more reliable performance than if it is not well maintained.The musician on stage risks his/ her reputation in front of demanding audiences. Can you imagine the resounding fail if there were a mistake with the instrument because of its lack of maintenance? If the pads are not carefully dried sooner rather than later not only they will make noise and not close properly, they will fail much sooner. If the bodies are not efficiently dried, cracks that will ruin the instrument will happen if the keys are not periodically cleaned, they will work slowly, and irregularly. The instrument may have a higher or a lower price according with each person’s budget, but if you take care of your instrument you, therefore, save money having to repair it, you will be able to invest that money professionally, purchasing accessories, books, etc., or personally and not related to music. At BG, we care about the musicians and their instruments.

Straps Musicians health, instrument safety Every day, we pay more attention to the pain associated with playing a musical instrument. Throughout the years, musicians spend many hours with an extra heavy weight over their cervical spine, shoulders and their right hand thumb. With time, injuries that could have been prevented or even avoided happen. In the best of cases these injuries must be treated in order for the symptoms to disappear, needing frequent medical check-ups, especially for those who's main activity is music. BG designs each of it's straps thinking about both the musician's health and the instrument's safety. To take care of the musicians health, we distribute the weight of the instrument to avoid injuring vital areas of the musician's anatomy and so that the body posture is as natural as possible when playing.

BG has the right strap for every performance situation

Straps like the Harness or Yoke have revolutionized how the musician lives with his or her instrument. These models have been adapted to men's, women's and children's anatomy and allow them to enjoy their musical instruments without pain or discomfort. It is important to also remember the injuries that can be caused by the weight of the instrument on the right-hand thumb. During the many hours of rehearsal,

We Care for YOU M a d e i n Fr a n c e

the thumb must support a vertical pressure on a very specific point The anatomy is not ready for it. The musician starts their formation at an early age, when the bone structure has not yet developed. To take care for the body, there is nothing better than using the highest quality straps. All of the BG straps are handmade in France, using the best materials that go through  rigorous quality controls. They are examined in three independent controls BG straps are made to withstand the rigorous lifestyle of today’s busy musicians. They have double backstitches, with more than 42 stitches per point, what makes deterioration almost impossible. To prevent fraying, all the threads are burnt up to three times. BG straps are resistant and very comfortable. To take care of the instrument, BG has three different types of hooks -metal hook, snap hook and metal snap hook- and connectors. There is a BG strap for each moment and situation. From the children's straps to sophisticated models that incorporate Swarovski Elements, wonderful straps made with the best leather and practical models made for students and their economy. All BG straps are handmade in France.

Straps Cotton, Absorption, Comfort When it comes to marching bands, the musician's neck is under a bigger pressure that increases with each of the steps he takes. BG straps are a great help and provide an extra protection to the cervical spine in the neck area to prevent injuries.

In order to reach the highest performance, the musician must be completely focused on the music and the instrument. He cannot be distracted by external factors In hot and humid climate, during a hot day or under the lights on stage it is very important to feel very comfortable in order to remain focused.

A BG strap will be the musician’s best ally, providing the highest comfort possible to prevent the musician from any distraction therefore allowing them to focus on studying, rehearsing or performing at their highest possible level.

Cotton is one of the oldest and most renowned fabrics in the world. It’s origins go back to Egypt and prehistoric Mexico. Softness, versatility and lightness characterize it. Cotton can absorb up to 27 times its weight in water and it is breathable.

All BG Straps are hand made in France

Cotton allows the air to flow, it absorbs the sweat and takes it to the surface. This is described as the cotton's breathing and it is considered very appealing, specially in hot climates. BG straps have inside, thick and comfortable cotton paddings, (except the model Flex) that absorb sweat, providing high comfort.. The straps exterior, made in nylon and leather (depending on the model) and the inside made in cotton, are sewed together by BG craftsmen with a double stitching of 42 stitches per point. This makes the quality, durability and resilience of BG straps truly amazing. BG analyzes each detail and subjects each of its products to numerous tests before handing it to the musician. Cotton padding minimizes the fatigue effect, which allows the musician to rehearse or perform longer with higher performance.

The adjuster is a key part in the straps. When on the stage player needs to feel an overall comfort. The fast and secure adjustment of the strap is crucial in many occasions. That is the reason why BG develops every single product in close communication with musicians worldwide

Connectors are the link between the strap and the instrument. The safety of the instrument and the comfort and mobility of the musician depend on them. BG has studied, through hundreds of rehearsals, the most practical connection system for each instrument.

BG buckles offer an ergonomic and anti slippery shape for a perfect grip. Made in metal or ABS plastic with 3 different design depending of the strap

BG straps offer three different hooks: Open Metal Hook (M) Plastic Snap Hook (SH) and Metal Snap Hook coated (MSH). Open Metal hooks (M) are perfect for doublers who need secure and fast change while on stage. Snap hook are recommended for kids and for people playing on a chair so the sax will not fall down. BG recommends only metal hook for marching band and baritone saxophone
