Ordered a Phil Tone Rift mouthpiece and a Bonade ligature from Sam Ash...fast delivery, mouthpiece is great. When I ordered I asked for the inverted Bonade alto. I said "inverted" several times during my order. I did not get the inverted...I guess I got what was in stock. Ligatures are not returnable...The Bonade is a step up over a generic, fits a Meyer hard rubber good. I've had Bonades in the past and they have always been good for classical and jazz, at a lower price point. The Phil Tone is just a bit bigger around, so I could not use this Bonade non-inverted on the Phil Tone, but it works good on my old Meyer. When ordering over the phone you may have to be more specific then I was saying "inverted" three times...I guess four times is the number you need to say it.
