Soon I'm going to buy my new sax, but I would like my sound still to be clean, but also to have an edge to it. So nice and loud, clear, and a bit dirty. What is the best set up for this (from experience..)?
Thanks

try a yas -23. bright, powerful sound with edge. easy altissimo and as dirty as you want to play it. good used ones around $ 350 up. you will be very impressed with this horn. one recently won a side by side blind test here on SOTW against the most revered name in saxes. I have four in my stable for instrument grants for local students.if you want to step up then a yas-62II.
try a runyon or JJ classic mouthpiece with a spoiler.

i didn't say vintage but the most revered name in the business. the 23 went up against a Selmer Reference 54 and the 23 was voted overwhelmingly the high end horn in a blind test.
