    sorry it's taken so long to get back..Vandoren Optima ligitures work great on the Meyer pieces..I favor Java Jazz reeds on my Meyer..get an Otto Link metal piece for your tenor..ya can't lose. I've never been very impressed with the Lakey mpieces..some guys like them..a Link will give you a classic swing tenor sound..try a metal selmer alto lig for your link..check out the store here at sax quest..I'll bet they have what you want..I also use the Java reeds on tenor..I blow on an Otto LInk 7*. keep the faith.
