Purchasing a saxophone?

When you purchase a saxophone, does the mouthpiece and ligature come with it or are those separate? I want to buy an alto or tenor sax. Also what kind of reed should I get to go with a sax, (hard or soft, filed or unfiled?)

    The mouthpiece and ligature come with the sax. Advanced players use hard reeds which are harder to blow. You might start with a 2 1/2 or 3

    Generally it will come with everything except the reeds. Start with a soft reed until you get used to it. A 2 is usually good for beginners. And unfiled.
