Maybe it would be a good idea to try different mouthpieces, a different ligature won't really affect the sound. (If it does then it most likeey means your current ligature or mouthpiece is damaged or warped)Ticho said:I want the sound to be dark. I' am using now a BG Tradition, which is really bright. I was thinking in a rovner dark but my teacher also recommend me the EDII. Is it brighter than the dark model??? Thank you very much.
An S80 shouldn't really be over bright - you should be able to get a variety of tone colour, so I would suggest working on embouchure. I think the best ligature for a Selmer mouthpiece is a Selmer ligature, they are very good.
