ligature recommendations

I'm looking for a lig to replace the one that came with my metal link STM for alto...I'm fed up with it! I tried a metal selmer, but it came no where near close to fitting. So what do you guys think would work? Insight greatly appriciated!

    I have found that my Winslow ligature works great on a lot of different mouthpieces. If you tell them your mouthpiece brand, they will make sure you get one that fits just right. Plus it has adjustable facings on it so you can customize how much of the reed the lig actually touches. I think I paid 65 bucks for mine, but I love it.

      Hey, does that STM lig fit a rubber alto link? If so, would you be interested in selling it?

        I'm doubting that it would, since metal pieces are much thinner than rubber pieces. If I'm wrong though, yes, I'd definitely be interested in selling it.

      Rovner ligatures are awesome because they're made of leather. You can adjust them, and they only cost like 20 bux. I love mine!
