So, I know this poor thing is ugly and beat up and not worth anything, but it was my very first bari piece, and I never knew what the heck is actually was. Anyone have any idea? The only marking I can make out is the “Ebolin” script. There may have been something under all those scratches, but the threads on a Rovner lig ate up that whole area. There aren’t any other markings on the piece regarding tip size or anything, but it’s tiny. All I know is that I’ve had it for close to 20 years, I played it all through high school, and I didn’t even really like it then



Many thanks in advance!

Ebolins were made by Brilhart. Which version is hard to tell, although it looks a lot like the Brilhart Special version of Ebolin like in this Ebay photo:

That looks like the one! Good to know. Thank you for satiating my curiosity!

If you get the next size larger Rovner ligature, it will not scratch like that.
This is true! If I knew then what I know now, I probably would’ve done just that. I’ve gotten much better at sizing my ligs over the years
