    SSS (Selmer Super Sax) 18,711
    Meyer #6 atm
    Vandoren zz #3/java/Zonda/any reed that sounds great
    Rovner Versa
    That's my jazz set up, The only thing That I don't see changing on this list is the sss, It is so awesome, too bad I suck too much to post some music
    I'm always experimenting with reeds and I'm unsure about my mouthpiece but it will work until I find something better.
