Five stars and you say "Depends?" Well, see I tried this ligature on my R13 and on my teacher's vintage which I borrowed, both in Bb. I have to say, every time, the Vandoren was great on theR13 and blew on the vintage, like my delicious pun? Anyway, it all depends on your setup. Works great for a free-blowing R13 and with V12 reeds.
I purchased this ligature trying to replace the Rovner that I got stolen and one thing I like is the dark sound it produces. The 3 different plates (2 leather , 1 metal) give me options when I'm trying different mouthpieces; I prefer the leather one myself. What I don't like it's that they attach with velcro which I believe makes it unstable. After 2 months of using it, it streched that in order for me to keep the reed in place I have to place it too low. I still like the sound it produces but for the price (now more expensive than when I bough it) I would probably go with a BG Revelation or a Rovner Eddie Daniels which is what I had stolen.
First I play on Grabner SW1-Personal mouthpiece(short lay and 0.98 mm opening) and Vandoren V-12 #3.5+ reeds.
Specially with the thick leather plate it gives me good resistance specially to get secure in the high register. But now I'm playing two rock,funk,jazz style pieces and both are fairly much around the throat tones and lower register(I think the other one does not even go higher than C above the staff two times or so) and over a big brass section. This ligature really hits it's limits and I really have to use my diaphram and push real hard to get any projection at all but then I sacrifice good control.
So I would recommend if you need projection but still want a fairly dark sound(it may sound bright but not in the back of a hall) to try the BG standard or Rovner Eddie Daniels(Now Verso) ligatures
This ligature has got to be one of the greatest innovations by Vandoren since the optimum. With this, they totally blow away lots of the competition. When I was in high school I played on an Eddie Daniels II, and I loved the rich, dark, focused sound it produced. Then once I started attending the University of Hawaii I switched to using the Vandoren Optimum. One because I liked the clarity that it gave my tone, and the fact that it was a whole lot easier to tongue. During one of my lessons, my professor Mr. Henry Miyamura, a graduate of Eastman (he's classmates with Larry Combs and Charles Bay, just to name a few) showed me this "New amazing ligature" he tired out. It is the perfect blend of the Eddie Daniels and the Optimum. It combines the richness and focus of the EDII and the clarity and the precision of the Optimum and takes them to a whole new level. (However I haven't found a liking to the inserts other than the metal one...that one is probably the best out of the three.)I recommend this to all who look for that bridge between metal and fabric, truly Vandoren has outdone themselves once again.
This is great! The thick leather gives great centerd tone. Each pressure plate gives you a totaly different tone. I recomed this to all serious musicians.
