What's wrong with the STM lig that comes with the m/p? Not a dig. Sincerely curious what you find wrong with it. I always think the lig is one of the best things about STMs even if the finish on the m/p itself is poor.hallkat said:Hi all any suggestions for a good Lig...the Selmer I have does not work on the NY just on the STM as the NY is a little bigger...what are you all using
I favor Olegature on metal Otto Links.hallkat said:Hi all any suggestions for a good Lig...the Selmer I have does not work on the NY just on the STM as the NY is a little bigger...what are you all using
The 404 can stifle the sound of the reed, but though the forum here I was taught a couple of things to keep that from happening. 1) scoot the ligature back a little further than you might otherwise think necessary, and 2) once in place, tighten the back screw (the one closest to the neck cork) first, and make sure the front screw is only tight enough to keep the reed from skidding around left to right on the table. I used this info and experimented significantly one weekend with placement and tension and am convinced that it isn't heresay. Shifts in placement and tension do make a noticeable difference - I'm certain of it.chknbon said:I use a F. Louis with alto plate on my NY link, & love it. The 404 stifled sound for me. I have used a Olegature lig on a rubber mpc in the past, but the F. Louis works on more mpcs for me. Before I got the F. Louis, a Rovner worked well.
Not so-the Millenium is a plain old STM, not a NY, with nickle plating and a blue biteplatehallkat said:Thanks Guys...I just picked up a Link Millineum which has the same chamber as the NY
