I think the best / easily available beginner’s set up is using a Yamaha C* with a Vandoren #2 reed. Inexpensive and will produce reasonable tone & projection. When you’re more confident about your embouchure, move up to a 2 and 1/2 reed or even a #3. By then you’ll know a lot more about your personal tone needs and preferences, and can move up to an inexpensive metal mouthpiece like an Otto Link . . . Try that Yamaha C*, you won’t be disappointed (or broke). Andy
Yes, that’s good advice. Yamaha, Vandoren and Selmer all good. The size opening is the key at your beginning stage and so the C* is a good recomendation, Selmer makes one and I wrote a review about it here: https://howtoplaysaxophone.org/selmer-c
If you can’t get hold of these recomendations I think you’re ok with the one you have now.
