Although you may think of us primarily as a ligature company, throughout its history,
Rovner® Products has also extended its expertise into the realm of mouthpiece innovation,
creating a number of exceptional designs that were released only on a limited basis. (Some
are still available in our "Vintage Mouthpieces"
section.) Those of
you who have enjoyed those prior models will be especially excited to hear of our NEW
Rovner® Deep-V™ Mouthpiece Collection. Although rooted in Rovner's historic concepts, it
looks and plays unlike anything you've ever experienced before.
Introducing The AVATAR™
You supply the character, we supply the core!
Playing the Avatar™ is a personal, human, somatic experience. The question isn't
"Who else plays this?" it's "Who am I when I play this?" The ability to express yourself
musically is an art, and that is at the core of the Avatar's performance.

"cut" and "edge" to presence, allowing the full spectrum of sound to move successfully
from intention to expression. When you're accessing a full musical spectrum instead of a
limited one, It's like having your own personal sound man expertly dialing you in so you
are fully heard by your fellow players and your audience.
If you're mic'ed for live performance, you're ahead of the game because you're giving
the sound system a more fully-developed core to work with, and as the sound is processed
you can be heard in a more authentic way.
The Avatar™ lends itself to modern developments. While exceptional with cane, this
mouthpiece creates a new partnership of sound and performance for those who enjoy using
The Avatar™ is currently available for alto and tenor...but stay tuned! Bari coming
in February 2021, and bass clarinet coming in spring of 2021.
Includes a Rovner® MKIII ligature and cap for robust performance right out of the box.
