Ishimori Gold Plated is very flexible, warm and colorful. It is the best value for the money in that it does everything really well. If you are coming from a leather or cloth type of ligature, Gold will provide a familiar experience, but you’ll welcome Gold’s added ring, depth and security.
Ishimori Solid Silver is the most solid in feel and sound. It is powerful and creates a superior hold on the playing experience, and it works great on lighter reeds.
