I'm pretty sure this is it:It may depend on your mouthpiece. On my RPC I use the basic one that came with it. No brand, just USA stamped on it. These cost about £4 and are really very good.
I just got a Marc Jean, and it comes into the more expensive category, but I prefer it to Selmer or Vandoren. I'm just trying it on a session and will probably switch to this in favour of my previous Rovner Evo (Star).Selmer and Vandoren are also good, but cost a lot more.
Those have always slipped for me on the RPC's I've ordered. Maybe I just need to scuff them up a bit, but they're generally relegated to my drawer of spares. Some of my favorite two-screws are bent up old ligatures I've picked up from past trades, or that came with vintage horns I've picked up in the past. Pre-scuffed, I guess.On my RPC I use the basic one that came with it. No brand, just USA stamped on it.
Very strange. The thing I really like about the 'USA' 2-screw ligs that came with my RPCs is that they don't slip at all, even if you don't tighten them way down. They conform perfectly to the mpc and seem to get a good grip. Also the screws work very smoothly, which is important.Those have always slipped for me on the RPC's I've ordered..
I agree with everything above. Plus,On my tenor STM, I use a Rico HTS2, with the 2 screws on top. Why ?
_ as the screws are up there, the lig doesn't destroy the reed. This is key when using synthetics which last long
_ tightening the screw doesn't influence the reed position, like the original Link tends to do
_ they are not too expensive and look neat
The slanted cap which cannot stand upright is ridiculous. Rico was smoking grass (cane ?) on that day....
AFAIK, Jody Jazz is shipping this model with their mps.
I remove the lacquer from my "vintage" Selmer ligs for HR pieces - helps reduce the tendency to slip.Well, the last two tenor ligatures I got with my RPC's I didn't seem to favor due to the slipping...
