The new maxima ligature has the quick fit, none slip properties of other fabric ligatures with the response and vibrance of metal plate ligatures. The maxima ligature helps you to have a sound which is full and rich. The metal plate allows the reed to resonate more freely than a fabric ligature. This means that less of the low energy higher partials of the note are dampened which makes the transitory at the start of the note shorter, therfore you have cleaner articulation.
