Not sure what the deal is with the 402, but I can't find the 404 anywhere online. Does anyone know what's going on? Has Selmer stopped making them altogether?
I actually use a 402 on my Seventh Avenue South tenor piece and it's great.
The 402 is what fits Guardala and a few other trim-line metal tenor pieces. I have one I use on these but it seems over the years more guys have gone to using Rovner style ligs on these pieces since that's what was shipped with a lot of them from WW&BW and are more easily available.
I just searched Reverb.com but did not find any.There are new 404 ligs available in US on Reverb.
Just search for Selmer ligature and browse the list. I see 2 for sale right now.I just searched Reverb.com but did not find any.
LOL, I almost want to buy it just to see....You could buy this and toss the doorstop.

The upcharge on those ligs is really irritating.https://reverb.com/item/32949009-se...r-mouthpiece-bb-tenor-saxophone-1970-s-silver
Looks like you currently have a choice of vintage, new, or with MP and cap.
Why? They're no longer made. The time to buy them cheap expired about a year ago.The upcharge on those ligs is really irritating.
The 402 is what I use on my Mosaic. I bottom out the threads on my (heavily used, probably stretched out) 404 when I try to use it on that mouthpiece with slimmer reeds like the Legere Signature.
Sure, but more than double the original price? Ridiculous. Obviously that's just my opinion, but I'd never spend $100 for a 404.Why? They're no longer made. The time to buy them cheap expired about a year ago.
What's your opinion on vintage horns selling for exponential factors of their original price?Sure, but more than double the original price? Ridiculous. Obviously that's just my opinion, but I'd never spend $100 for a 404.
