Thanks for the response. Are you saying that is was THE generic ligature of years past (i.e. the most common generic ligature available)? It has some design features in common with Bonade. Any idea who made it?Generic ligature sold by the tons in all music shops before the Chinese ligature became common and to be found on most older student saxophones.
Thanks again for the info. May I assume the pictured one, which is silver colored, is nickel plated? If so, what would likely be the base metal beneath the nickel plating?I've just checked in my drawer where I keep all sorts of odds and ends and I have one the same in brass.
Interesting. It does look somewhat like the M70. Its cut-outs look more like the Bonade 2254 picture here: http://www.brookmays.com/i--2254--Bonade--Alto-Sax-Ligature.aspx. Could it be a Bonade?that Bonade it is slightly different (as OP said it looks like one ......but not quite) but I have no doubt that comes from the same sort of press
