Hi guys, i have a meyer mouthpieces and a friend is buying for me a Vandoren Optimum ligature. by the way im talking about my alto sax. I just wanted to know if that ligature goes all right with my meyer.
If it fits it should be ok. The Optimum does not work with all mouthpieces because the angle of the lig can be different from the angle of the mouthpiece. I don't know how to explain this better, but you might have issues with the lig not tightening completely on the mouthpiece.
I've found that the Optimum lig on a Meyer mpc is just about the ideal set-up for my altos. I've used the combination for over a year now and have had absolutely no problems; good results with it on all my horns – and an especially nice dark sound on my Ref 54.
