I just switched up from my YAS-52 to a Selmer Serie II.
I'm very happy with the sound, it's alot darker than the 52.
I have a C* with a Ronver dark ligature for concert band, and I really like it.
It stopped my squeaking problem and I started to play much louder.
For jazz, I still have the ligature that came with my meyer 5mm.
I don't particularly like it, and I was wondering what ligature I should get..
I also use 3 1/2 Vandoren ZZ reeds, if that makes much of a difference.
