  2. Ligatures
    Hi, I am going ligature shopping and am considering a Silverstein Ligature to pair with my Meyer 5. From the people who own one in this forum, what do you think about it? Is it worth the premium? Also, how bright are these ligs? I'm looking for a slightly brighter sound, and I just want to...

  9. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I've been playing with a Meyer 5m on my alto for some time now. A friend of mine called and told me he bought a dukoff d8 for my birthday. I was hoping you could tell me what to expect from this new mpc, any tips? I apologize if there's any grammar/spelling mistake.
