After seeing how popular this thread was in the Tenor section. Why don't we give it a shot here?

E.M. Winston 303GD Alto, Meyers 6M (had this for a long time now), Rico Royal 3, Pad Saver.

Then there's the lyre, ligature and neck strap I found in the case and use.

OK - you can stop yawning now.

I play on a Metal Beechler 8, Vandoren Java 2 reed.

I have one VI alto, a 58xxx and I forget what my other VI is (it's in the shop getting overhauled, but I think it's either a 114xxx or a 144xxx).

The 58xxx is more or less my straight ahead horn.

and the other one is more of my pop sax horn.

Like RCNELSON, my info is in my signature area, but I'll reiterate it.

A late 80s/early 90s (112xxx, I think) Keilwerth SX90R gold lacquer, which should soon be getting a new neck, and an original early Babbitt STM 10*, which will soon be sent off for refacing. For reeds, I'm kinda on the fence right now, so add Hemke 3-1/2 and Zonda 3, substrength G. I'm looking to replace the BG Revelation Jazz lig I'm using now with either an FL Ultimate or, preferably, an Ishimori Woodstone.

Neotech Neck Strap

Claude Lakey Rubber 4*4 Refaced by MOJO
Vandoren JAVA 3's (Little soft, thinking about 3.5's)
Rovner Dark (The dampening doesn't bother the Lakey too much, and I haven't found any other ligature that works as well with the Lakey, including Optimum, Selmer, Rico H Series, Rovner Light, etc.)

Selmer S80 C* w/ Vandoren Patch
Rico Reserve 3.5's

My current one is:

Selmer Paris SA80 Series II
Dukoff D8 w/ LaVoz Mediums and Rovner Mk.III lig. for Funk/Fusion
Some form of Meyer, 5M-8M w/ LaVoz Med. Hard's and Rovner Eddie Daniels lig. for small combo jazz.

Here is clip of me from my first year in college, same horn as above, Meyer 5M, La Voz Med. Hard Reeds.
I will have to try and get some more current stuff on to my computer one of these days.
