    Mouthpiece changed on my backup alto, Rico again, for a classical sound:
    Jupiter JAS-769-767
    Mouthpiece: Rico Graftonite A7
    Ligature: GF-System III
    Reed: Alexander NY 2.0

    This setup gives me a quite nice mimicry of the Selmer SuperAction 80II's sound with the ARB Great Neck Original 7S... Not as refined and flexible, but pretty close.

    M.
    ss: King (H. N. White, curved); Bauhaus Walstein Bronze AI (straight).
    as: King Super 20 SilverSonic; Yanagisawa A-6; Selmer SuperAction 80 II; Lyrist "Briard"; Yamaha YAS-25; Jupiter JAS-769-767.
    ts: King Super 20; Yanagisawa T-500; Conn 10M.
    bs: Conn 12M; Yanagisawa B-6; Keilwerth The New King; I also play (and march) our concert band's Selmer SuperAction 80.

    For classical...
    Soprano is Super action 80 series II. selmer c*/c**. size 3 blue box vandoren.
    alto is SA 80 Series III. selmer C* soloist from 1970. that is a HUGE difference from C*'s made now.
    size 4 and 5 blue box vandoren.

    For a classical sound, i specifically use selmer soloists from 1970 and back, they are made completely different than selmer mthpcs now and they create an amazing sound.
