St. Louis Music (SLM) has purchased Compass Ligatures, a ligature system that can be applied across all types of saxophones and clarinets.  Previously brought to market by Claude Lakey, SLM will now be the exclusive owner and distributor of Compass Ligatures worldwide.

Mark Ragin, CEO of SLM, says, “The Compass Ligature is a great example of innovative and unique products that enhance consumer experience, which is exactly the product we are looking to work with. We had a great relationship with the previous sellers and also with the inventor and saw a great opportunity to grow our accessories when we heard he was looking for a partner.”

The Compass Ligature is in stock now at SLM.
