My entire setup is

A Yamaha 72CS
A Woodwind Company Mouthpiece
Luyben Ligature
Mitchell Lurie 4 1/2

I tried some 3 1/2 and 4's today and just keep squeaking.
The 4 1/2 seem like the right strength. I have a pretty clamp-like
embasure (sp?).
I have always used harder reeds than most of my skill over the years.
