 RE: alternative for Bonade inverted

If you are willing to spend $60 for a lig, it might be to your best interests to try the Winslow lig. I have been using different versionsl of his ligs for the past 12 yrs and his most recent ones are the best yet. They hold the reed firmly in place, but because of the floating metal posts, the base of the reed is allowed to resonate freely to compliment the action of the upper part. The resulting tone has a clarity and richness that other ligs suppress--most of all, the Rovner. Another advantage of the Winslow is that it is possible to use about 12 different post arrangements--the lig has 6 floating post that are all movable--to get the sound that you want. I have used other ligs in the past--Bonade inverted (which I liked), Laurie, Harrison, Bay, BG, string, and etc., but the Winslows work the best for me. As previously stated by others, like with any new piece of equipment, they do take a while to get used to, but you will notice a change in the repsonse of your reed and the color of your sound immediately. FYI Good luck, everyone.
