I have come across a tonalin mouthpiece for my tenor and don't necesarily know what ligature most of you use for this piece?

Any recommendations?

We welcome new forum members around here before we kill them...seriously? hah gotcha!! any decent two screw ligature will do on a Tonalin Brilhart unless you have the streamline thinner body piece. let's see i would use a Selmer Paris gold plate two screw lig, a Francious Louis Ultimate lig, you could get away with a Rovner light or Evo model and see. those i mentioned are for a hard rubber piece in size large but in case you do have a streamline then you would need an alto type hard rubber ligature.

The plain Selmer style 2 screw ligatures work fine. Any ligature will work fine. I have tried a bunch.
I see original Brilhart 2 screw inversed ligatures come by on Ebay regurlarly. The plain brass ones. Not
the crazy over the top collector prized ones. I use a few of these on Ebolins and they work great!
From experience I can tell the original Brilhart ligs sound a little darker then the Selmer ligs.

I just got a Tonalin myself and any normal size (like for Selmer HR mpcs) lig would work. I've a Brancher myself, but am a big fan of Rovner products since their so easy to handle.
