Jamms mouthpieces are unique because they use a precision-made clamp to hold reeds in place, eliminating the need for ligatures. Not having a restrictive ligature band around the mouthpiece creates more vibration, which results in increased volume, a brighter tone, and enhanced notes.
Why does eliminating the ligatures make a difference?
By holding reeds in place without ligatures, Jamms avoids the all-too-familiar problems of ligatures being lost or bent, as well as the problem of reeds becoming chipped or slipping out of position. As a result, Jamms helps students spend more time concentrating on learning music, and less time worrying about ligatures.
