Hi.
I have recently bought an Ottolink STM for my alto sax.
I was initially disappointed at the stock ligature it came with, but more and more I am getting frustrated.
It doesn't seem to hold the reed right; air seems leaking out no matter how I set it up on the reed.

I looked into many reviews and recommendations online, including here SOTW, and would like to know in detail about the Francis Louis' Ultimate Ligature's compatibility on the Metal STM.
So my questions are:

- Does the ligature fit the alto mpc perfectly?
- Does it improve tone quality, especially the altissimo range?
- Are there any other ligatures that would be a better fit for the alto STM?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, look into a Selmer 404. fits theMetal tenor, I think it will fit your alto, others on here will tell you for sure..

Messed up table or facing. The Link lig isnt the greatest in the world but it should function. If your having to strap the reed down with chains and a pulley its not the lig.
