    I use the following Sennheisers & Neumanns:

    Sax - 421, mic boom low in, or just outside the bell.
    Trombone - 441, straight in.
    Trumpet - 409, in front - about 4 inches away.
    Flute - Neumann KM84, a few degrees away from the mouth (try to avoid breath noise, get's pretty gnarly sounding if it's too close).
