Best Place to Get Your Reed Clamped 

Luyben Music

4318 Main | 816-753-7111

Next year marks the 65th anniversary of Luyben Music, the Main Street sheet-music emporium, instrument-rental mainstay, and home of the Luyben ligature. For clarinet players, that last item makes Kansas City a special place. Since 1965, this patented part — the molded-plastic component that holds the instrument's reed to its mouthpiece — has distinguished the compact music shop among woodwind players everywhere. The ligature isn't a serious investment (it still runs less than $15), but a good one (and Luyben's is a good one) ensures good timbre and, you know, happiness. And today, thanks to advances in technology and machinery, the Luyben ligature is more precisely rendered than ever. Also: It comes in colors. Not a reed player? The rest of the orchestra awaits you here, from brass to strings, along with practice books, advanced sheet music, mouthpieces, harmonicas, and various gateway implements for those who want to get in tune.
