  • Yanigasawa Soprano circa 1975 $350 from Zavarella's.
  • Mr. Malerne made clarinets for some of the majors and then made some under his own name. I have a Standard and a Professional. Each of them cost (are you sitting down?) $25. Both wood, the Professional may have silver keys. I need to take them to Lee before I start playing Nawlins music.
  • .....Otto Link 5 mouthpiece
  • ............Mitchel Lurie 2 1/5 reeds
  • Down in image 3 we have some guitars. I got a lot of work by doubling on guitar and (ahem) vocals. The guitar I used when I was working full time was a black Ibanez AR50. I sold that but recently got another red one. The Strat is a Fender made in Mexico. Both of those actually belong to my daughter but they are staying at my house. The Martin is an MMX from Guitar Center. I think it's basically a D-28 with whimpy bracing. I love this guitar! I love the way it vibrates in my chest.
  • I usually use GHS Boomers 11s for electric and might do Martin or D'adario 13s on the acoustic.
