Try a Phil Barone New York model with a Consoli Ramplig Dark Ligature. The Barone costs $150, and the Consoli is about $30 from WWBW. The Barone piece has a really great, smooth, jazz sound that projects very well. It has loads of guts if you push it. The Consoli ligature compliments it quite nicely. The Consoli is similar to a Rovner except it has a sort of "ramp" with two rails that the reed sits on. It has a bit more freedom and resonance than the rovners.
