Selmer super action 80 series II w/ a selmer C** mthpc/hemke 3 1/2 reed;sometimes I will use the kid's Yanagisawa SC-991 curved sop and I use the Yasni 5 mthpc it came with and a hermke 3 reed(when my youngest daughter plays it she uses a selmer C*/hemke 2 set up;the oldest uses a yamaha 4c/hemke 2 when she plays it{rarely-she likes alto/tenor mostly}).

I no longer have a soprano, I had to sell mine to make ends meet.

BUT:
Vandoren S25 refaced by Ed Zentera, measures .068
played with Rico 2.5s

I really miss my horn, oh well!

1929 Lyon & Healy Straight- Selmer Super Session E
1927 King straight- Selmer S-80 D
1918 King Curved - Morgan Protone or the SS

I use vintage (pre-1967) Vandoren #1 reeds that I clip to suit. I was given 5 boxes of 25 years ago and have enough reeds for about another 50 years at which time I will be 110 and knowing how cheap I am, I will live that long to use up these reeds.
