I have been using the standard ronver dark lig that came with my jody jazz dv tenor piece and my sound is just a tad shrill and low notes are not as responsive as my hr soloist. I tried out my friend's vandoren optimum lig he got for his v16 and my sound immediately improved. The only problem was the ligature did not have a secure fit on the mouthpiece. Are there any sizes that fit? Also, I have been looking into trying the jj ring lig, the olegature, and possibly any other recommendations that I get from here. What ligs (and sizes) would you guys recommend?

The Marc Jean is the most secure fitting ligature I've ever come across. Once you set it, it stays put.
They come in a wide variety of sizes.

Hey there Collegestationsax . A Selmer two screw fits the Jody Jazz DV perfectly.

I use one on my DV.

Take your mouthpiece to a store and try the Selmer ligature. I believe it's called the 404.

Also try a Rico H. I believe Jody is issuing the Rico with the DV now.

So try one and if you like the sound go with that.

As for the Optimum if I remember correctly there was a gap where the ligature didn't follow the taper. Sure is a good looking ligature though.

Sometimes a soprano ligature will fit a metal mouthpiece for tenor. But I think any Optimum will have a problem fitting.

IMO i would stay away from the oleg i found them not to be very secure, i basically all of the BG ligs and the theo wanne lig is great but costs too much for me.

A Rico H came with my Jody Jazz Tenor HR. Seems like a good ligature. I am partial to two screw metal ligs. I have a Rovner MKlll which is stuffy on most mouthpieces I have.
