Hey gang hows everyone? I just bought a Berg duckbill 115/0. I got two questions about it: is there a big difference between the 115/0 and the 120/0? And has anyone encountered any issues with the Berg ligature? Mine doesn't fit with the reed on the piece.

Aim fine!

The 120 is a 120, the 115 is a 115. Thousands of an inch at the tip. In theory.
/0 should be quite bright and edgy.

With Bergs, only the original ligature works: quite hard to find a replacement (rovner?).

I've had half a dozen bergs over the years and never had a problem finding a lig. I've usually used Rovners. If memory serves me right, when i had a metal Duckbill I used one intended for an ebonite alto.

On my ebonite Bergs I went crazy trying to find a "regular" ligature (not rovners or bg). i think at some point I found an alto clarinet lig fitting well, but I cannot be sure. I still have issues on my soprano piece, where I use a flexitone or the original lig

I've found ebonite alto size Rovners work on my tenor ebonite Bergs... My Versa/ Eddie Daniels thingy does the job fine. Having said that- here at Sax.co we have had various problems down the ages with oddly sized Bergs and lig compatiblity......
 

Similar threads... or are they? Maybe not but they could be worth reading anyway 😀
