    update from my post from a year ago,

    Selmer Mark VI 86xxx.
    Phil Tone 105 Hard Rubber mouthpiece
    Rovner Light Lig
    FL reeds 2 1/2 or 3.

    I really like these Phil tone pieces, I use them on both alto and tenor now.
    Very good players, intonation is spot on and response is very quick.
    Poweful too, I can play acoustically in most situations, rehearsels, sessions etc without having to overblow and lose control.
    It really wails when pushed, with a big Gene Ammons like sound

    Was playing Brilhart Tonalin .100 and an Ackerman Lost Wax Metal 7*, pretty much covered it all for me, but I recently gravitated to my Tenny Slant 7* with DC Superial 2.5 reeds and Selmer 2 screw ligature. Big, full tenor sound.

    I went to see Emilio this past Friday with my Super 20 for some tweaking.

    When I arrived, a lovely Berklee co-ed from Chile was with Emilio. He asked if I would let her try my Super 20. I cheerfully obliged and she put her vintage slant sig on my Super 20 and proceeded to blow softly and sweetly and dark.

    It totally blew my mind. I had never heard my horn played that way. It was like watching a race car in slow motion.

    She gave it back to me, after enjoying the sampling, and I put my Florida STM 8* on and it filled the room with the ballsy sound I'm used to. I then switched to my Dukoff D9 and made it scream like a banshee.

    A gentleman in the room likened my tone to a woman screaming at him. I could only smile.
    Just two questions: Where's the Bar located relative to the stage, and does the band get a discount?

    After alternating between an Ebolin 3* and a Graftonite A3 on the 1945 The Martin, I found a Link Tone Edge 8 that I like much better than either. Playing Vandoren trad 3's.

    At the moment:

    Mark VI (141xxx) that was gold plated some years ago.
    Otto Link NY 7* refaced by Mojo
    RJS 2H and Vandoren JAVA 3s. I can't make up my mind

    This is likely to change. I have a Barone Jazz coming to me soon as well as a Powell refaced Otto Link TE, along with a FL Ultimate lig for the metal link sized pieces. I used to use a V16 as my #1 but I'm liking my NY more and more these days.

    We shall see!
