I'm a new member to this club.. new to the alto club too.
I lucked out on this find at a pawn shop (posted about it in another thread). Its an early eastlake I guess, in great shape. only paid $450 for it, which is insane!!
right now I'm using an Otto Link super tone master 6* (that came with it) with a #2 selmer Roy J Maier reed (are these any good? I got a box of 25 for free). I also have an old Buffet Crampton C (hard rubber) mouth piece I might try with it.
would anyone have any recommendations on which of the two mouthpieces would be better to bring out the best sound of this horn? and maybe suggest a good reed to use for either one? Keep in mind I'm still adjusting to the alto (played tenor for awhile, but stopped playing for a year, now playing again because of this horn).
