I play a wide range of different instruments. You might be interested to know what instruments I use and why.
HI play a Yamaha 471 french open hole solid silver flute body and an Oleg solid silver handmade flute headjoint.
I play a Selmer Mark 6 soprano saxophone, a piece that I bought in 2012 from Franta Kop. I use a handmade Morgan Jazz 7 mouthpiece with it, Borgani Flexitone ligature and Vandoren Classic Blue 2,5 reeds. For a Selmer, a naturally good sound and great tone colour flexibility are typical. My soprano sax has it too and that’s why I play it.
I play Selmer Balanced Action, an alto saxophone made in France and purchased in Australia. I use Morgan Jazz handmade 8M mouthpiece, Vandoren Classic Blue 2,5 or Gonzales Classic 2,5 or V12 2,5 reeds. One of the most beautiful alto sax sounds I have ever played. Simply Paul Desmond.
Brought from South Africa, Selmer Mark VI, Morgan Excalibur 8M mouthpiece. Vandoren Classic Blue 2,5 or Gonzales Classic 2,5 reeds. Simply a tenor sax mark VI. Without F#.
Buescher, Theo Wanne Durga 8* mouthpiece, Vandoren Classic Blue 2,5 mouthpiece. An amazing instrument, range only to Bb, but an absolutely gorgeous tone colour, perhaps due to the extraordinarily broad body.
SML Mariguax Paris, Morgan RM-28 mouthpiece, Vandoren Classic Blue 3 reeds.
Selmer, Selmer C* mouthpiece, Vandoren Classic Blue 3 reeds. Unfortunatelly I do not have as much time to play it as I would like to have.
Bach 37*, Harrelson Bravura, mouthpieces: GR mouthpiece 3HC*, 3MS, Levitin 4Solo. I use both instruments. The Bach is a classic 37 with a star, which means a lightweight body. They say it is better for jazz (than classical music). Might be right. The other instrument I use is a gold-plated custom-made American Harrelson trumpet, which is a lighter and cheaper version of Monette. It has an exceptionally nice tone. But I love to return to my Bach trumpet as well.
Scodwell (Goldbrass), Wick 4 mouthpiece. An absolutely brilliant instrument.
