Your link goes back to this forum. But Bob is known for playing a Hard Rubber Freddie Gregory Mark II.

Yes, you need to put in the correct link. Anyway, I'd be surprised if it wasn't his FG Mark II.

By the way, I'm playing that exact same model as my main piece nowadays.

I think it is a Freddie Gregory too.

Though, as like "Jlima" said in my last thread, all of them are custom/different beeing the same supposed model I find it a little too much bright to be a MarkII. It sounds brighter to me than my Mark II/IV model, nearer my Mark IV.

That's what I was thinking also. It sounds more like it's in the Mark IV range of brightness but maybe Bob just plays on the bright side.

I'm not sure of when that clip was taken. I drove Mintzer to and from his hotel once and he told me he play a small tipped link a long time ago- We were talking about his Chicken solo with Jaco at Budokan as I'd just played there.
But, his hair is not that 70's there :)

Why don't you email him and ask? He's the nicest guy and will probably respond.

I'm particularly curious about Bob's choice of reeds (brand, model and strength). Does anyone have information on this?

Vandoren V16s on his FG HR when I saw him here, strength either 3 or 3.5, don't remember which. That was a few years ago now.
