Saxophone Reeds

“Which reeds do you use”? This is one of the questions I get asked the most! For many years my choice was the Vandoren Java reeds (green box). These are a good quality natural cane reed.

Now I use Fiberreed synthetic reeds. Mainly the Onyx and the Carbon. They feel as good as my favorite cane but they last at least 10 times longer and don’t dry out or split.

Saxophone Mouthpieces

I have played on a Guardala gold metal mouthpiece almost exclusively for the last 30 years or so.

There are other really good brands such as Jody jazz and Wanne which I have tried but none has driven me away from my Guardala!
