Hi... I recently had to buy a new lig because the original one that came with my Vandoren Java A45 is at its end! So went to the "local sax shop" and asked arround and they sugested tha Leather Vandoren witch came with a 3 plate kit. I thought it would be Cool and try out all diferent plates... After 3 weeks I'm not really happy...
I don't like the sound with any of the leather plates and so find my self only using the metal plate, and at the end still think the original metal lig was better...

I recently baught some diferent mp and would like you opinon on with lig would help me get a more free sound, good for contemp. Jazz, rock , funk and blues!

Thxs everyone... So I guess I was robed! I bought a 50€ ligature when a simple 15 - 20€ lig would have been a better choice!:evil:

It seems that many don't like the rovner lig... Why is that? Does that include the Light version? And about the BG models any advantage?

I think i'll keep the lig for those ocasions when I want a sofrer, less edgy tone... Going to take a look át. The Rovner Light and some metal ligs... Is there any you recomend from the fabric leather ligs? I ask ony because, as I posted previously, i bought several mp recently and they don't come with lig, so these seem to be good choice because they adapt better to diferent mp... Right?

How is your ligature "at it's end"? Unless you've crushed it somehow or stripped out the threads by using vice grip fingers a lig is pretty hard to wear out.
The original A45 lig lost all laqueur with extensive oxidation and was bent ( my dog got to it before I did!). After buying the leather Vandoren and not being that happy with it i decides to ré over de original lig. Witch is Ok now (except for the cosmetic part). But I still need a lig for the new mp I baught I can tell witch they are:
- Otto Link STM 5*
- E. Rousseau #6 metal mp
- Claude Lakey HR 5*3

... I konw! GAS!
Thank you all for posting.
