Established in 1974 by Phil Rovner, Rovner® began its journey with the creation of one ligature, the original Dark. Since then, it has expanded its range to encompass four “Classic” models and four “NextGeneration” models. Distributed globally, Rovner® products are cherished by musicians of all levels, from novices to top-tier professionals. Despite numerous imitators, the name “Rovner” commands profound respect and trust within the music community. Musicians consistently turn to Rovner® for its unwavering reliability, exceptional quality, and ongoing commitment to innovation.

Since George Reeder assumed the role of President and Co-Owner of Rovner Products in 2014, the ligature catalog has significantly expanded. Introducing the Next Generation ligatures, including The Versa X, the Star Series, The Legacy, The Platinum, Platinum Gold, and the Van Gogh, Rovner Products has continued to innovate under his leadership. Alongside his wife and Co-Owner, Lynn, they’ve spearheaded the development of new products, such as the LGX Saxophone Ligature. This innovative ligature was recently unveiled at the NAMM Show 2024, marking a special milestone—the celebration of Rovner’s 50th anniversary.

The LGX ligature is a combination of the Rovner Legacy and Rovner Van Gogh ligatures.
