Charles Bay's ligatures are top notch. they are beautiful works of art that really free up your sound. Standard Baroque model should be around $55. His newer ligatures are a little more expensive. Does the shop sell his mouthpieces too?

He makes another one called the "Quintessence". Check it out, it's really good but hard to get. You'll probably need to contact him directly.

If you are looking for the vintage job with the plastic "handles", do a search of the marketplace. There was another inquiry and one SOTWer (Bruce Bailey I think) even said he had some new old stock of them available (but maybe only for a nice trade).

WWBW and Weiner carry the standard Baroque ones, but I have no idea where to get the Vintage or Quintessence.

there's a website based in the UK that has the vintage and gothic varieties, plus some metal bay mouthpieces. I don't exactly remember the link, it was saxophones.com.uk or something like that. I'm sure some internet sleuthing will find it.
