People often ask me: “What is your setup?” or “What mouthpiece and reeds do you play?”

You’ll find all the answers below, but keep in mind that copying ones gear or setup will not result in sounding the same. Sound is more a matter of how you can imagine your own sound.

What I do want to say is that I strongly believe in the products I use because of the quality and they after all those years always felt good when performing.
