Need some help guys. What size ligatures will fit a metal alto mpc? Do normal soprano size ligs fit, or do I have to get something else? How about Clarinet ligs?

Thanks!

Ligatures for metal alto sax mouthpieces usually work.. have normal ligs not fit?

Well, yes I know that metal alto ligs work. However, I don't find many ligs designed expressively for metal alto mpcs around here, except for the Rovners and the Selmer metal alto lig, which is why I wanted to know if soprano or clarinet ligs work.

I have found that soprano ligatures are too large for metal alto pieces.

A clarinet lig is just a tiny bit smaller than a hard ribber alto piece, so no.

What type of metal mouthpiece are we talking about?

Is there a reason you don't want to use the stock lig? The one that came with my metal sop Yani works great.

Well, I'm trying to purchase one off someone, but they don't happen to have the stock lig with it, just the mouthpiece. So that's a bit of a bummer.

Any other ideas? Or... does anybody have a spare metal alto lig lying around? :?

I have like three that are missing screws, you can have them if you pay shipping :D :D .
Lol, sweet. Do standard lig screws fit, or do I have to find something else different? Can you check if the screws from a clarinet lig fits?

Thanks loads :D
