I recently bought a Lebayle LT Metal for alto and liked it so much I bought one for tenor, along with a jazz metal for soprano. I didn't have any problem with the LT napkin ring lig on alto, but have yet to be able to get the tenor lig to slide down to where it should be. I've tried several different reeds with no luck yet. Anyone else had this problem? I hate to just use a different lig, since I paid for this one and like the alto lig......

you can sand down the bark from the reed or add padding to the part of the lig that touches the mouthpiece, not the reed

You can check out the different model descriptions at the Lebayle mouthpieces website.....or at saxophones.uk which is where I bought mine..

Right you are! I just sold my LT Super King last week and had a letter lapse!;)

Same story here. I use JAVA reeds and the ligature that came with it just kept slipping through.
I finally settled on using a Rovner light ligature I had.
A shame though, the Lebayle ligature is so cool to look at.

Well, see, I have the opposite problem. My lig won't go down far enough, and I tried about six different brands of reeds. I also tried a Rovner light on it and it works well, but I'd like to use the napkin ring since I like it so much on alto. I really like the mpcs!

I would say they are neither extremely bright nor extremely dark, but rather in the middle. I find them to have a surprisingly warm sound for a metal mouthpiece.......
