Why Rhodium?

Rhodium is one of the rarest precious metals in the world, even more so than gold. A member of the Platinum metal family, Rhodium is a beautiful and durable metal that gives a very clean look that is similar to silver in color, but will not tarnish or oxidize, making it a perfect metal for a ligature! On the AK Ligature, Rhodium is being used in lieu of silver plating specifically to counteract tarnishing that is only amplified by the hard rubber used in most mouthpieces.
