    I'm on a very early silver plated Selmer BA 21XXX (makes it '35?), early Pillinger NYTHB 7* (though he opened it up a little more, so like a 7** or something!) from some rubber mix he was trying. Makes it a shade brighter which works well with the warmth you get from the silver.

    Reeds I'm now on Gonzalez local 627s, in a 2.5 but think i may try their 2.75s soon, not sure if they do the quarter sizes in the 627s though?

    Update:
    The Conn 10M, with a Lamberson J7 and D'addario Jazz Select 2H, has usurped the Couf Superba.

    The Couf is at another location, so my backup is a Borgani Jubilee, Lamberson J7, and Hemke reeds.

    I still have the Martin as well but will probably sell it as I'm happy with the Conn as my vintage horn. Will probably sell the Borgani too, to keep it to just one vintage and one modern horn.

    For the last year or so I've mostly been playing a hard rubber Lamberson J7 with Java Red #2 reeds and my trusty Yamaha YTS-62II. I love the dark mouthpiece combined with the bright reeds and horn. Some people don't like Yamahas, but I sound pretty much the same after 10 minutes on pretty much any decent-quality horn. I love the keywork, the intonation, the response and, most importantly, the fact that I already own it.

    I also have an RPC 120B (also with the #2 Java Reds) that I pull out when I really want/need to have a more cutting sound and more volume. Both feel great and sound good to me, but I do feel a bit more civilized on the Lamberson. Sometimes civilized is not what the situation dictates, though, and I'm glad to have the RPC around for those times.

    The main one.
    Selmer 1932 Super.
    Link STM no USA 9*.
    Rigotti 2.5 Hard or Vandoren java green 2.5 or 3.

    The work horn. (I don’t play for a living so this is my practice horn at work when times are not so busy).
    Also I am the boss, so I’m not practicing on anyone else’s time.
    Dolnet Belair.
    Link STM late Florida or EB 8.
    Same reeds as above.
    This could easily be my only horn as it sounds so wonderful, even when I play it.
