Does anyone know what tenor sax setup Sam Rivers used in the 60's? I have always loved his sound on albums like Fuchsia Swing, Contours and the rest of his Blue Notes catalogue. What horn and mouthpiece was he using?

Sam played an SML (Gold Medal ?) for a long, long time and I think he was playing it on FSS.
He was playing it at Studio Rivbea back in the day.

the horn he is holding on the cover of FSS is an SML, i think his soprano was also an SML.
