I'm thinking like crazy tight polar pattern, with zero sound taken if it deviates from a few degrees! [. . .]
I believe that most any hyper-cardioid mic will have increased sensitivity directly behind the mic - more so than a super-cardioid. And in live scenarios, I'm also wondering if you are also having to deal with feedback issues for the mic?

Does the mic need to be especially close to [or far away from] your mouth for the effects?

Since you are playing sax, I'm assuming the mic is currently fixed on a stand?

Assuming that you are not intending to use the mic to capture the sax itself?

Could a lav mic very close to your mouth be an option?

EDIT: The sun got in my eyes. I just reread and saw you wrote 'The thing is I play with a saxophonist on stage.' You are purely a vocalist?
