I need some recomendations for ligatures on a Hard Rubber Berg. Keep in mind the Berg HR is skinnier than most HR tenor pieces, so more than likely it'll be an alto fitting one.

Harrison Clarinet Ligatures fit HR Bergs and work very well. They can be had much cheaper than the saxophone ones. Clarinetists aren't as crazy about Harrisons as saxos are apparently.

Don't know about that- I just sold one for $150.
Try a Rico H ligature, a Daniel Bonade inverted on a plain 2 screw that fits properly.

Clarinet ligs and HR alto ligs are pretty much interchangeable. So either should work on the Berg HR. I was pleasantly suprised to find that my 2G Olegature meant for HR alto fits very well on my HR Berg, and sounds great too. The Olegature do have a tendency to slip and slide when you try to adjust the tuning, but it is still manageable overall.
