Here's mine:

Selmer SA80 II (owned since new in 1990, feels like part of me).
Pillinger LA6* in white resonite.
Rico Jazz Select 3S.
Rovner Dark.

I'm not really one to change gear all the time. This does it all for me.

You'll have to ask those at the Karen Sharp workshop what it sounds like from the listener's end!

I love my setup - nice and dark with a modern sound, I tried to imitate the sound of players like Soweto Kinch & Kenny Garrett

Sax: Selmer Ref 56 (Matt Finish)
Mp: Otto Link Ebonite (8)
Lig: Francois Louis (gold finish)
Reeds: Rico Jazz 3M (although thinking about swapping to 3S)

Thinking I need a bigger mouthpiece though as I'm feeling the set-up too easy to blow. Interested in the Jody Jazz ones especially after noticing their popularity in this thread so far.

Mouthpiece now starting to look like a health hazard! But it still plays well.
