Optimum (kinda) for metal bari pieces

Just thought I would share this with anyone (like me) who was looking for a decent lig for a metal bari piece

I picked up an Optimum lig for the V16 metal tenor piece, and let me just say that it works amazingly on my SS Berg and my Dukoff, both bari.

It also works well on my Barone Jazz 9* tenor piece.

Anyone else had luck with a setup like this?

Great suggestion !

Optimum are my favourite ligatures on all mouthpieces, except maybe on Lawtons where the slide-on ligature works really well. I find the optimum really free-blowing and easier to use than some of the other fancy ligs.

It was a timely bit of advice, as I have just bought an SR Tech metal bari piece through SOTW (thanks BARIBRI) and I have a V16 tenor Optimum sitting around. It works really well and makes that SR Tech a lovely piece - very impressive for a CADCAM mouthpiece.

Thanks for the tip.
