Endorsements & Gear:

I am a signed artist with D'Addario Woodwinds and Conn-Selmer Inc. playing Yanagisawa saxophones.

The mic I play live is a DPA-4099, DPA does not do endorsement deals with musicians, however I take this mic everywhere and I have visited the factory. If I can help it I won't play through anything else.

I play LaVoz Medium Hard reeds on all my saxophones. D'Addario has done a wonderful job of retaining the original LaVoz design while enhancing the consistency and quality.

My current Tenor is a Yanagisawa T-992 (Bronze) that has been modified with a solid sterling silver bell. I use a solid sterling silver / gold plated neck from Yanagisawa. My tenor mouthpiece is a Guardala Super King. Ligature by Rovner.

My current Alto is a Yanagisawa A-992 (Bronze) with a solid sterling silver / gold plated neck. My mouthpiece is a Dukoff D-9. Ligature by Rovner.

Both my Soprano and my Baritone are early, four digit serial number Yamaha 62 series horns. Dukoff D-7 on Soprano and a Lawton on Bari. Ligatures by Rovner.
