evette buffet crampon alto

I just started playing the sax last Sept. 09. Someone gave me an evette Buffet Crampon alto sax. I had it repaded and cleaned. I was told it was a student horn, but the repair tech. said it was an intermediate horn and a very good one.I have had no lessons just learning off the web. It seems like it just comes so easy for me. I did my first solo recording on a cd last week. It was just a few turn arounds but they seemed to like what they heard. I really enjoy playing and learning. I'm trying different set ups. I'm using the Selmer goldentone 3 with a rico royal 2/1/2 and it sounds bright and buzzy. But the c* sounds soft and mellow. I would like to try a better mouthpiece. All tips and advice welcomed. Thanks

    Everybody is different regarding mouthpieces, I've been playing fo 27 years aprox., my preference on low budget, (so not too expensive just to try out) MEYER #6 medium chamber, ligature rovner light, and try reeds vandoren green box, work up little by little to reach a reed #3 at least in the future, this setting gives to tha alto sax a good kick without loosing it's warm sound, intermeediate between classical and jazz stile. This setup should be around $95.00.
