I just wanted to say that, although the ligature is expensive, it is 100% worth the money. My sound was completely transformed for the better and the resonator plates provide amazing tonal versatility. I use it on my Cannonball Big Bell Stone Series tenor (B-ICE) and Ottolink Hard Rubber Tone Edge 7*. It is an incredible combination and I would change a thing. EVERYBODY should give the Theo Wanne Enlightened Ligature a try. The experience has been enlightening.
