    Hello All, I recently finished what turned out to be a really fantastic 3 years of working with Kim Bock at KB Saxophone Services in NYC where I had the opportunity to get neck deep in all things saxophone. I was able to sit right in front of many of my favorite players and hear them A/B...

    Does anyone have any experience/insights in using both the Francois Louis Ultimate Ligature and the Saxxas/Wislow ligatures? When it comes to things such as the effect on your overall sound, any difference in how the reed resonated, etc.. did you notice any difference between the 2 ligatures...

    I recently ordered two Marc Jean ligatures: one for my soprano - for a Vandoren V16 - and one for my tenor - for a metal Otto Link. On both horns the sound is quite drastically improved over my other ligatures (Vandoren Optimum and Francois Louis Ultimate on both soprano and tenor). The quality...

  13. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    Last night I tried an experiment. I took off the metal lig that came with my Buescher C-Mel piece and bound the reed onto it with teflon plumber's tape. Very interesting. Smoother, less grainy sound. (Makes my intonation problems more obvious.) A bit easier to play, perhaps? I'll probably...

    So some 30 years ago, I bought my first Rovner Dark ligature for my Link STM tenor mouthpiece. Without much ado, I plonked it on, felt instantly it was much better than the stock ligature and never looked back.
