The medium is semi-pro big band usually unmiked. For Tenor, I use a Java T75 with a Rovner Light ligature and Vandoren Java 2.5 reeds. I started with a Jumbo Java, but it was a little much. I'm thinking of trying a Rico H ligature that should free up the reed even more.
Older (25+ years) S25 on soprano w/stock ligature (inverted 2-screw that came with the piece). Vandoren blue box #3 reeds. Versatile, sweet-sounding setup that works great for just about any style of music I play.
