you won't sound like him by buying the same sax, reeds, mouthpiece etc.
just try and model is sound on your existing mouthpiece.
but yes i would say he's playing a six and a lawton, a silver lawton, not brass by the looks of it.

Sorry, but is the difference between brass and non-brass? I see 2 specifications of lawton: brass & bronze.

I understand that I won't get the same sound! But searching for the another sound is the reason for peolple buy new mouthpieces. I think I'm going to try order lawton gold, but I'm not sure with parameters:

Lawtons are B and BB, bronze and brass

what is the best you think?

Thanks! wrote email to them..

but I'm not sure what type to select B or BB

for example there is BB in attachment, but I really have no idea is the sound of this mouthpiece will be close to what I'm searching for..

I've never played a Lawton, so somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but there are three (main) types of chamber/baffle designs. There's the BB, which is bright with a high baffle, the B, which has a medium baffle and the plain numbers (for a mouthpiece with a 7 tip, it would just be marked 7, not 7B or 7BB) have a rollover baffle and are darkest. I don't know exactly how bright or dark any of these are, though.

I know way too much about Lawtons considering I don't own one, have never played one and have never been too interested in getting one. Too much time on SOTW!
