Isn't there one already made for the hard rubber alto size? What would be the point?

I have both and the clarinet is definitely larger in diameter. It did not fit my Meyer alto mouthpiece so I doubt it would fit the Selmer either.

Clarinet ligatures are made for clarinet, not for alto sax mouthpieces:cry: . if you want an Optimum on your alto, you'll have to buy one

optimums barely fit alto mpcs, don't get me wrong I love mine, it's just not very flexible....
