Baritone, M9, LaVoz Medium Soft. I've been very happy with this mouthpiece for 20 years. I started out using a 3-1/2 reed on it, but I learned from recording myself that lighter reeds gave me a better tone, so I gradually worked my way down.
Tenor, M9, LaVoz Soft, or Rico Royal 1-1/2
I also have a M5 for tenor. Was getting a good tone with 2 or 2-1/2 Vandoren reeds, except the low notes were too difficult. I thought the pads were leaking, but I don't have that problem with the M9.
Just got a M7 for tenor. I have not found the perfect reed for it yet.
I was so happy with the M9 for tenor and baritone when these came out that I tried M9 for alto too. Unfortunately it was a terrible match for my King Super-20 alto, which requires a larger chamber mouthpiece to play in tune.
