The BG Frank Bichon tagline is "when details make the difference," and it only takes a few minutes of browsing through their products to see that train of thought in action. In fact, paying attention to every little detail is how BG became one of the top makers of woodwind accessories, and you'll see they have a big selection to choose from. Ligatures are BG's primary claim to fame, but along with those, this section is also packed with cleaning supplies, hardware, straps, stands and plenty of other woodwind essentials. If you're looking for the extras you need to keep your woodwind instruments in fantastic shape, then this is the place to find them.
When ligatures are the order of the day, BG has you more than covered. That goes for just about any material, from the BG Metal Tradition Saxophone Ligatures and Duo Series Ligature to the BG Flex Series Ligature and L15 Standard Baritone Saxophone Ligature. There are even hybrid models to choose from: the BG L4R Revelation Bb Clarinet Ligature and BG Revelation Jazz Saxophone Ligature, for instance, are fabric ligatures but feature metal pressure plates to hold the reed. This design gives you the best of both worlds for smaller groups, intimate venues and other situations where neither all-fabric nor all-metal are quite right.
Of course, ligatures are far from the only supplies you need to play a woodwind instrument, and there are lots of others here to round out the lineup. Specialized cleaning accessories like the BG Tenor Saxophone Cleaning Swab and the BG Woodwind Instrument Swab will help you keep your instrument in good shape. There are stands and bags for storage, as well as harnesses and straps to help you hold on while playing. Some of the more specialized items include flute hand positioners and ligature replacement parts. And one of BG's specialties is their series of reed performer pads that insulate your reed from its ligature to help it perform better.
This is just a brief overview of what BG has to offer, so it's definitely worth your while to take a close look and check out all the options in detail. You may find a new ligature you didn't even realize you needed, or a cleaning swab that can cut your maintenance times down by a large amount. From clarinet to bassoon, there are accessories here for you no matter which kind of woodwind you play.
