The vintage ones are the best, but very expensive and scarce, the modern ones are pretty awfull very flimsey and badly fitting and soon distort, a complete different animal altogether....i still cant understand why so many people dis the oto link ligs...i only play the vintage ones
So there you have it...........! I play a Barone Jazz on Tenor - close to the Link NY. I have a Rico H ligature on it, which is excellent!
I must admit I'm not a great fan of Babbitt current production - just lacks quality and consistency IMO.
