Ligature for Selmer mp

Would anyone have any recommendations on a ligature that would best fit a Selmer S90 tenor mouthpiece? Also, is it true that the Vandoren Optimum ligature does NOT fit the Selmer mp? Thanks for your help. JS

    I like the Rovner light or dark ligs. I use that setup , and i also use it with Brilhart special mpc, there good ligs for any mpc. Stevo

      i hate rovners. HATE THEM. cant understand why people play them, and here's why: since there is no plate in the thing, there is no pressure to keep the reed on the mouthpiece, and the reed sounds dead and buzzy. now BG, for example, have plates in there ligs, so when you turn the screw it does something useful, like putting pressure on the reed, instead of tightening the fabric around the mouthpiece anyway, try a BG.

        use the stock ligature. don't waste your money something you don't need. there have been times when i've used a bass clarinet ligature or a coat hangar for a strap, but generally speaking, stock equipment is as good as any.

        Cuber, again we agree! I also hate Rovners for the same reasons that you do. I've given two away that came with two Guardala mouthpieces. The stock ligaturesw, as Jamterry says, is sometimes the best............Kelsey

      I agree with kelsey and cuber too!! rovners are piece of crap. I use rovner sometimes on my selmer, only because I bought it for 5 bucks (can't argue with that, i think). I would say bg. Olegature if you have extra cash lying around. and from my experience, vandoren optimum BARELY fits selmers with thin-medium thick reeds. O ya, I once tried duct tape, rubber band, and string around the s90 out of curiosity. actually, those stuff work decent.
