Johan van der Linden and deQuelery

We knew that our deQuelery Spiro was good. But to see our Spiro become populair in such a short time frame, and to see many musicians left behind in awe about the effect and simplicity, left us speechless. Only recently, Johan van der Linden choose a deQuelery Spiro ligature. He was convinced in no time at all because of the sheer improvement in sound and playability.

Johan studied classical saxophone at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam.

Did masterclasess wth Frederick Hemke, André Beun,  Jean-Marie Londiex, Iwan Roth, Daniel Deffayet and François Daneels. He was primarius of the world famous Aurelia Saxophone Quartet from 1982 till 2013. For the Aurelia he wrote many arrangements and recieved many prices. In 1988, the Aurelia’s won the Edison Klassiek,  a prestigious price for the best CD recording of that year.
