My Musical Toys
All purchased new...
A 1976 (but possibly made a few years earlier) Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophone. I use
a Otto Link
"Tone Edge" mouthpiece with a 6-star facing, and Rico Jazz
Select 3M reeds (often shaved down a bit due to pathetic state of
my chops). Until recently, I was using a metal Otto Link "Super Tone Master"
(also 6-star), but I decided I like the rubber mouthpiece sound better..
A 1980 Martin M36 flattop
acoustic guitar. My favorite strings are Martin
Marquis light guage, swapping the high "E" for something a bit
heavier to reduce twanging.
A 2001 Epiphone "Dot" semihollow
electric guitar. It's basically a knock-off of the classic Gibson ES-335. I play it through a Tech 21 practice amp.
Fender Jazz bass with
Hartke 25 amp.
