Getting a Completely New Set-Up

I'm looking at getting a new saxophone and accessories. I want to get:

  • Sax Dakota SDT-1200 SS Tenor Saxophone
  • Pomarico Jazz Series Tenor Sax Mouthpiece 6*
  • Theo Wanne Liberty Ligature Gold Plated
  • Legere Signature Series Tenor Sax Reed Strength 3

Is this a good set up?

    I am unfamiliar with the Dakota line, so I will not comment on it.  I found one reference to the tenor Jazz Pomarico that you might find interesting.  It is the last entry on this thread:
    https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?179671-Experiences-with-Pomarico-crystal-sop-mpcs
    The thread title mentions Soprano saxes, but the last entry discusses experiences with the tenor version.

      Thanks for linking that! I'm in my High School's marching, jazz, and concert band. But a warm, mellow sound is actually quite what I'm going for so that sounds perfect.

      As for the sax, I'm just trusting in the store, the reviewers, and the price range. Right now I'm on a trial period rental anyways so for the next two months, I can interchange whenever with little to no extra cost to me. So I can experiment as I please until I find exactly what I want

    The Theo Wanne lig is only compatible with a Theo Wanne mouthpiece designed for it.  If you want a good pressure plate type lig the Francois Louis lig is good.  

    You haven't explained why you want that particular horn and mouthpiece.  Is it from reputation, play testing, or.....?  If it's appearance, you might want to think about your priorities.

      Yeah, I recently figured out about the Theo Wanne, and thanks for the suggestion about the Francois Louis, I might have to look into it
      As for the horn, it's a mixture of price range and reputation. While I do want a nice looking sax, it isn't the highest of my priorities. Plus I'm on a "trial period" rental, which allows me to interchange saxes as I please to find the one I want
