Hi everyone
I am planning to buy an Olegature Saxophone Ligature Model 2G. I want to know any opinions or feedback on it. I am going to use it on Dukoff D8 metal mouthpiece for alto sax.
thanks

there is also a rico version of a olegature that my friend uses, looks identical and is cheaper. He likes it but i have never tired it.

I use a 4G on my Otto Link STM. It seems to free up some notes which the stock ligature seems to stifle. I think Rico owns the company now. At least my Olgature has Rico on the box.

I just got off the Rico website, and did not see one of these on the list of ligatures.

Do you know where this Rico olegature is to be found?

+1 to Rico stamped on the ligature.

I've never used them on metal pieces, but they work great on my HR alto and clarinet mouthpieces. As long as you use the included rubber patch on your mouthpiece, it shouldn't move around too much.

For me, the Olegature and the Dukoff were not a good combination. The "chain-mail" of the olegature really digs into the soft metal of the Dukoff. When I did play Dukoffs on alto and tenor, I used BG Revelation Jazz ligatures which are basically leather ligs with metal reed plates. They were a little fussy to adjust but worked better than anything else I tried. Oh, I did use vintage Harrison ligs for a number of years until they broke (not the most robust design, IMO).
