THIS IS SUPER RARE NOT A COPY WHICH THEY ARE SELLING NOW A DAYS. THIS IS A 50 / 60’S WINSLOW LIGATURE THAT I BELIEVE IS TRANSITIONAL.

EXTRA PARTS CAN STILL BE ORDERED DESPITE RUMORS THE MAN IS DEAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I HAVE TO THANK DR SAX FOR 90% OF HIS RESEARCH ON THE EVOLUTION OF THESE UNIQUE LIGATURES.

 

1 THE OLDER ONES HAD POSTS/STUDS ARE CROSS-HATCHED.
THIS ONE HAS THOSE. THESE ARE WHERE THE REED SITS. THERE
ARE 4 ON THE LIGATURE. LATTER ONES DID NOT HAVE THE CROSS-HATCHED POST/STUDS.
2 THE OLDER ONES HAD SIDE POSTS THAT WERE METAL THAT MAR’D THE MOUTHPIECE.
3 THIS ONE HAS NYLON/PLASTIC SIDE POSTS. WHICH ARE MUCH BETTER. SEE PIC ONE. THESE WERE THE REPLACEMENTS FOR THE METAL SIDE POSTS WHICH MAKES ME THINK THIS IS A TRANSITIONAL.
4 SO THIS ONE IS THE REAL THING. I THINK AT ONE TIME THE BUMPERS WERE REPLACED TO RED FROM WHITE OR BLACK WHICH DR SAX POINTED OUT WAS THE CASE SOMETIMES.5 THE SCREW THAT HOLDS THE MOUTHPIECE IS VERY VERY STURDY.
I TRIED THE LIGATURE ON 4 MOUTHPIECES THAT I HAD LAYING HERE ON THE DESK ALL HARD RUBBER ONES.
IT FIT AN OTTO LINK EARLY BABBITT , BRILHART TONILIN GREAT NECK NEW YORK MPC ,
IT FIT A STEEL EBONITE WOODWIND B5 ( IT WAS A TINY BIT TIGHT BUT ENOUGH SCREW HEAD TO DO IT SECURELY NO PROBLEM )

IT FIT A RARE ACOUSTICUT SW SUMNER ( A RARE HARD RUBBER TIP 5 ) I AM THINKING OF SELLING THAT ONE. SO IF ANYONE INTERESTED CONTACT ME. SOME SAY THE BEST HARD RUBBER EVER USED AND PLAY LIKE OTTO SLANTS. ESPECIALLY THE RARE 5 !

6 SAXXAS MAKES A MODERN KNOCK OFF OF THESE LIGATURES FOR AROUND 150 OR A BIT LESS ??? But

have heard they are crap by MR Winslow himself !

7 BUT THIS IS A CHANCE TO OWN THE REAL VINTAGE DEAL.
I found this in a case from a 1955 Aristocrat tenor sax case.8 YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICS THERE IS A 18 ETCHED ON IT SO ( it means for hard rubber tenor pieces Mr Winslow confirmed this…and I found a chart that gives Winslow ligature #’s and more hard rubber mouthpieces it fits. )

I DID MY BEST TO DESCRIBE THE ITEM
