    Almost identical to my setup except for the reed. I use Vandoren 3 1/2. The harder reed makes my sound very full and rich. I really like the Vandoren ligature and its 3 plate options.

    Alto;
    Yamaha 62
    Vintage Larry Teal Mouthpiece
    FL ultimate ligature
    Hemke 3 1/2s

    Soprano;
    Selmer Series II (black lacquered)
    E. Rousseau Mouthpiece (3R)
    Rovner Lig.
    Hemke 3 1/2s

    I used to play on vandorens, however, I grew tired of the inconsistency of their reeds. I'm still in search of a better reed, and for the time being, have settled on the Hemke's. A friend of mine keeps harassing me to try Zonda's.

    Alto:
    Yamaha 62, Meyer 5M, vandoren optimum lig, vandoren blue box 3's

    And tenor is pretty much the same thing. I change the reeds for jazz (la voz, rico jazz, vandoren V12, whatever's running well). A lot of people have issues with me playing this setup, until they hear it, of course Tried various classical mouthpieces only to find that they didn't play much differently than my meyer: the reeds are the most deciding factor in terms of the type of sound that I get.
