      What about a Meyer Metal 6J

      Can you tell me what the opening is on this, and what your opinion is on this mouthpiece for a tenor? Thank you

        it's like .075 or something like that. It's al right if you want a more mellow,darker sound. But i like the bright and edgy, i'm now using a metal berg. deffiantly worth a checking out. Meyer 5 is awsome on alto. but for me just doesn't cut it on tenor.

          that should give a nice overall tone, nothing radical. I play on the berg 105/0/m but the 0 is a litttle to edgy for most people but i love it. The m facing is american and i love the bends on it better than sms. But just play different mouthpieces and find out waht sound you like.

          DO NOT GET THE VANDOREN!!! THEY WILL SOUND GOOD FIRST but then they will break on you. if u want a lig for alto, Oleg. Tenor-ultimate lig by francoius louis

          How did yours break? Ive had one on alto since they first came out, not a single thing can I complain about. If that lig broke, either something was drastically wrong with the one you got, or you did something stupid.

          Re: Back to ligatures

          I use an olegature for my Meyer 6M Alto. I like that, seems to bring the meyer out of it shell alittle. More edge, that lig is a good lig.
