I'm curious - has anyone ever tried a Lamberson 8DD with string ligature?

I was wondering if using a string ligature would negate some brightness of the 8DD. I'm using the 8DD with a Rovner Versa set at its darkest configuration. With the right reed, it's pretty good, but can be a bit bright at times. I thought it might be an interesting experiment to try the 8DD with a string ligature and a so-called "dark" reed such as Hemke, Vandoren Classic, etc. to see if the brightness can be tweaked a bit.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the merits of an experiment such as this?
