This is some info for those people, like myself, who have a strong dislike for the lig that comes with the Otto Link NY mouthpiece. I tried a Semer 404. There was some improvement but not enough. For the last 2 days I have been playing with a Rovner lig that is intended for this mouthpiece. Big, Big, BIG improvement. I thought it might make the sound too dark but was wrong. It adds just a slight amount of brightness, with better responce. For those who might be interested in this lig, it is a Rovener [Dark-3ML-NY]. I have no connection with the company.
