    I just realized I'm wrong. I've been playing the M11 on tenor for a long time now.

    Duh oh

    I hope this isn't an early warning sign of Oldtimer's disease.

    I got an M9 for alto from Rackety Sax (Glenn) and it´s a monster.

    Back on the metalites I think for good. I posted earlier about going back to otto links in metal. I found out that the metal alto mouthpiece is too long and I play flat on it because of that. So no more otto link. I am using Rico reeds with good results. I will try Rico reeds on Tenor and Baritone to see how this works? the metalite is a short shank mouthpiece in comparison to the otto link.

    Anybody know if this Yamaha YAC-1611 tenor ligature will fit the Metalite tenor?

    EDIT: Still don't know if Yamaha ligature fits, but generic American Plating tenor ligature below fits perfectly.

    Kind of overpriced, but my local music shop has a terrible selection of metal ligatures.
