ak-logo-trans-small2nd Generation Design

Generation 2
We are pleased to announce our Generation 2 design (effective 2020). This new design keeps the same performance and usage characteristics of the original, but now with a far lower profile. This was done to help players who felt the ligature screw “tap” against their chin. The new design also features improved mechanical durability.

Performance Changes

  • Thinner profile. Reduces the chance that the ligature can “tap” on player’s chin.
  • Thicker brass around the steel pins to improve durability under stress.

Cosmetic Changes

  • Ligature model number marked on the reed screw.
  • Logo moved to the reed engagement lever.
