I had asked if anyone knew Hadley's equipment set up.
A 'Calimaniac' wrote in with the following reply:
"You had replied that you thought he played a Selmer SBA. Yes, he did, until a few years ago.
Now he's blowin' on a 13xxx Selmer Super Tenor, 1931, for the past 3 years.
He claims he has never sounded better!! You can check for yourself, he has
a new CD on Origin Records in Seattle (released last month). Called
He uses standard reeds...Rico Royal 2.5's and a Selmer
Short Shank "D" hard rubber.
He also used the same horn for another recent CD "Gratitude" also on
Origin. Although, he used a "Woodwind" hard rubber for that CD.
Both CD's are great."
In the pictures on this webpage I am assuming that it is the 1931 Selmer he is playing.
Most of the pictures look like he is using the Selmer Scrollshank.
But the mouthpiece in the first picture
I thought it might be a metal mpce in that first picture, but it is hard to tell.
