I've got one that will fit a metal tenor Link ( marked TO) and I would sell it for $100 plus shipping from the States. I think I have one that fits a Bari sax HR also. I've seen them go for that price. The ones that fit Dukoff alto pieces get a good price because Sanborn uses one.
What model fits the dukoff alto? there is a music store in town that has a drawer full of these ligs and they have the old sticker price of $29 on them. I bought two A 2 ligs and am going to go back today to get a third. I want to know if it's a good idea to grab a couple clarinet ligs too.
i think the soprano sax might fit a dukoff alto. lefty i would buy as many as you can afford and sell them here and on the clarinet sneezy.org board. you will make a tidy profit. just dont get 10m greedy
bruce -harrison ligs come in different sizes for each insterment-example there are like sm med and large for each size sax or clarinet . this makes getting the right size difficult . my sop lig is stamped s2 for soprano med . harrison clar ligs fit runyon custom alto and tenor and are the best lig for them i have found. lefty -i would advertize this when selling the clarinet ligs. last time i checked the harrisons were selling for near100$ on the clarinet site. also morgan excaliber takes clarinet lig-another selling point for the clar ligs. in short-selling them should be easy. i would buy the whole lot!
Just thought I give a bit of a historic perspective to Harrison ligs. As everyone knows, Bob Harrison died about 12 years ago and his company subsequently no longer produced this great ligature.
I was fortuate enough to speak with his widow, Shirley, an extremely wonderful person. We discussed the sizes produced for saxophone:
For Soprano: There was S1 and S2 for the hard rubber and metal respectively.
For Alto: A1, 2, 3 to accomodate the variation in sizes. A2 bing most popular.
Dukoff: AD and AD2 for those variations.
David S uses an AD. This he has had for years. This fits his Dukoff well but consider the probable modifications made.
I am one of the people who bought one of Lefty's A2's. Haven't gotten it yet, but if it's anything like the beat-up one I am still using, I will be forever happy. I have a fine thread in one of the screw sockets to keep it tight.
I am one of the buyers who bought Lefty's A2 for 75$ as a Buy Now on Ebay. This was a great price, and I did pay what was asked. I am certain these pieces will bring more in the future. Problem is, they do wear at the bands.
Phil, your lig is in the mail, it was posted today. expect it around Friday. Thanks for the info.
I asked an employee to search the inventory of the store to see if there are any more harrisons available, he will call me if he finds anything. as far as I know there are only three more clarinet ligs in stock.
The clarinet ligs should fit most streamlined alto mouthpieces, like some of Charles Bay's pieces or streamlined brilharts.
I really m holding out for an Harrison AD lig, but we'll se!
Good luck with the C's. MHO: I would just advertise them for Clarinet, then if someone bought one, let them do the size-testing on their sax mpcs. If you start mentioning possibilities, there will definetly be some return C's...to you; again MHO.
My Wife bought me a Gold Harrison Ligature for my birthday last year which was original owned by David Sanborn, it came with his signature (I wasnt sure it was genuine so I contacted his PA and she confirmed it was indeed David's), its the model that fits the Dukoff (which I also have) only problem is because the Dukoff is a small mouthpiece the ligature won't fit most standard mouthpieces and I really can't get on with the Dukoff.
