Thanks for sharing this. It’s a beautiful set up you have with my favorite part being the Silverstein Omnipatch—I love those. But of course your mouthpiece and ligature are gorgeous together—and that ASC Borrum piece is top notch.
It's the perfect combination! Silver and Copper is one of my favorite aesthetics. Oh and the Silverstein patches are my absolute favorite. I'll be using them exclusively, especially on this delightful Borrum (and maybe a second one soon )Thanks for sharing this.

That would look good, but nearly as goodNow you just have to gold plate the mouthpiece.
Thanks! It is a great combination of designs. I also really dig the screw topper pearl. Tastefulthat ligature is a beautiful fusion of old and new - lust love it. Great images too
I haven't yet had the chance to play. Practice time is in about an hour for me. As to what I've played, recently it's been a Silverstein Hexa lig, before that Vandoren Optimum and Rovner platinum. Also have a metal standard Ishimori two screw for metal links. I'll be sure to let you know if I find this to have any difference in response!Do you notice any difference with the new lig ? I'm not sure what you were using before. I like the convenience of a single screw.
Finally got done playing. It's a keeper! I found it to be a better fit for the ASC Borrum than my other ligs. Holds the reed with less temperment. The Silverstein Hexa was giving me a bit of chirping if I didn't find the sweet spot for it. With the classic lig, I am able to move up and down the reed comfortably and it plays stably throughout with no fussiness. Response of the horn seemed more unlocked than even the Silverstein (which is why I liked the silverstein, even if it was fussy it was extremely responsive to low Bb). The classic is certainly my new favorite metal tenor lig!Do you notice any difference with the new lig ? I'm not sure what you were using before. I like the convenience of a single screw.
I couldn't agree more! Reminds me of the special edition Borgani tenor (Rose Gold and Silver).That’s beautiful, and it looks great on the silver piece 🤩
I don't have one on hand, and haven't had one for a couple years. My tone master sadly doesn't have a stock lig.Really nice looking. I use the regular T ligature on my Florida link. The plate where it connects to the reed look very similar. Do you know if there is a difference with the Ishimori and Otto Link Vintage T ligature as far as response? I might consider getting one.
Shhh 🤫! Don’t talk about price (I may have just ordered one 🤐).I saw Chris' video last year. I also saw him playing on it (tenor and soprano) live in NYC last Thanksgiving.
I contacted Ishimori. I was ready to pre-order one, till they told me the price . I does look beautiful, I must agree.
That looks so cool. I have been waiting for a company that makes the Link style lig but without the ridge on top. May I ask where you bought yours?I just picked one up for my DG Crescent tenor. Ishimori makes this particular size for DG tenor mouthpiecescs. Nicely made, works great.
