The Rovner Dark offers the free-blowing performance of a string ligature with the convenience of a standard screw ligature. Rubberized polyester fabric and machined brass hardware.
Rovner Ligatures also greatly improve reed playability. Reeds that are totally unplayable on other ligatures will often perform well with the Rovner. The ability of the Rovner Ligature to extend reed life is unparalleled. More rigid ligatures actually hammer the cane fibers during vibration, eventually destroying the reed's tonal vibrancy. Not so with Rovner; most players find their reeds will play until the tips finally succumb to fatigue and fall apart!Selecting A Rovner Ligature

Comments about Rovner Dark Baritone Saxophone Ligature And Cap:
These are workhorse ligatures for me. I love the single screw as I can turn the ligature upside down to adapt for the reed/mouthpiece relationship. Putting the two bars on the screw side over the reed stock may allow slightly more reed vibration for low notes, the full leather seems to damp it more. Of course, I may be imagining it!
