Sorry I forgot to mention, the stock lig is not a selmer lig (I certainly dare not say selmer lig is crappy one ). It does not come with my mouthpiece. It is a very regular two screw lig and it is no brand name.
cannot agree more. I heard that the better your skills the less you will depend on the gears to make good tone.After days of practise you may be good enough to not rely on a ligature to help shape your sound.
