What do some of you SX-90 players use on the business end of your Keilwerth? What are some mouthpiece/reed combinations that you have found to work well with this instrument? Anyone use a HR piece?

my guardala king R&B cuts good, methinks a bit less baffle and a bit more chamber may well be better (for me)

Yep, used a HR Selmer C* and a Meyer NY Ltd 6M on my former SX90R Anniversary with a Rovner lig. The Meyer worked particularly well and I liked the Rico JS 3S or Hemke 2.5 or reeds (when I got an occasional good one...). Another good piece on this horn is a Yani metal no 7 - don't laugh give it a go!

I use an silverplated lasax #8 with 2.5 vandoren javas on my sx90r alto and love the sound.
