Good but not for me
TonyOr, 01.04.2019
I recently bought a Vandoren Optimum ligature for my tenor, to go with the V12 mouthpiece I had also bought, and was very impressed by it. It was a significant upgrade from the Rico ligature I had been using. I therefore decided to order one for my alto as well. This turned out to be a completely different story.

I have a Yanagisawa AWO2 and am using a Meyer 5M and the supplied Yanagisawa ligature with Select Jazz 2H reeds. The Vandoren sounds very good with all three plates. It has a sweet, singing, lively sound and I have no complaints about it at all. It's just that the Yanagisawa is better. The Yanagisawa gives a stronger, fuller core tone and works better for jazz, which is what I play. in comparison, the Vandoren lacks depth but is smoother and sweeter, especially at the low end.

It may be that the Optimum ligature in combination with a V12 mouthpiece would work better that the Yanagisawa - they do seem to be a very good match on my tenor - but I tried the V12 on my alto and didn't like it as much as the Meyer, so I didn't go down that route..

amazing ligature!
Pianosaxclarinet, 03.10.2013
This is a very impressive ligature from our friends at Vandoren. The single screw allows for more easier setting up, while the three interchangeable pressure plates offer a great variety of sound and tone qualities. I use this with a Vandoren Classic Blue strength 3 reed, and with this I prefer to use either the vertical grooved or the horizontal striped pressure plate however it will very much depend on your reed, mouthpiece and embouchure.
