    Re: What's your setup?

    Hmm... I see theres some talk about Martin saxophones going on here. what setups have U tried? What model horn? I play a 1948 Commitee I with its origional mouthpiece. It has a great jazz sound. But I'm looking for a classical setup. Any ideas?? Thanx- Owen

      A really good classical set up can be either of the following. This is what I play on, respectively. Yas-82Z, Hemke reeds, Selmer S90 180, Vandoren Optimum lig Selmer Series II Super Action 80, Alexander Clasique reeds, Selmer C*, Vandoren Optimum lig, Rovner Dark lig

        I use a rovner dark lig also. works great. I have had a YAS-52A for about five years now. Beautiful sound...it has howeevr gotten a bit worn after for years of marching band. yeah Selmer C*! i'm thinking about getting a new mouthpiece, think it's time. i just use blue box 3.5 Vandoren, seems to be working well for me.

      As of this post, I use a Selmer Mk VII Tenor Sax. Contrary to popular belief, the Selmer Mk VII Saxophone line is not all that bad. Just gotta dedicate time into making a good sound of the horn. In addition, I rotate between Selmer C* Mouthpieces, E. Rousseau Hard Rubber Jazz Mouthpiece, and an Otto Link Metal 5* Mouthpiece, using Rigotti Gold Reeds ranging from 2 1/2 strong to 3 strong, depending on what mouthpiece I'm using. As for Ligatures, Rovners are the way to go for now.

            Hey! Nutin' wrong with a 475. There are certainly better horns, but a 475 is still pretty good. I played on one through middle school.

            The Vandoren Optimum ligs are da' schiz. Other than that, all Selmer ligs are good, Rovners are good, Francois Louis, etc. Check out www.muncywinds.com. I know the people that run the show. Call 'em, and ask for pam. She can tell you everything that you need to know, and offer great suggestions.
