Description

In Commemoration and celebration of their 90th anniversary, jj Babbitt Company has introduced the new Otto Link Vintage Mouthpiece for the tenor sax. Several years in the making, the Otto Link Vintage mouthpiece recaptures 'the sound' of early Otto Links.

Supplied with ligature and cap

Having some idea of what I'd expected a 'vintage' sounding Otto Link to sound like, these 'pieces came as something of a surprise. This is a mouthpiece with a noticeably more edge and projection than a modern Link. What you have here is an extremely easy blowing design with potential for a lot of tonal flexibility. Well made, versatile & not quite what you'd expect. Jules@sax.co.uk

"Link recognised that players were searching for the old models as they were a little different. Now, they've produced a new 'vintage' model based on those '60's classics that is freer blowing with a more dynamic response. It has a little more edge than the normal Tone Edge model and allows you to play in a multitude of different musical genre's. The 7* I tested worked well with a 2/1/2 or 3 red box Java reed - great for a Stan Getz sound." Paul - london@sax.co.uk 

Otto Link

Otto Link started as a repair technician in the William S. Haynes flute company in Boston, Massachusetts, in the 1920s. In the early 1930s he moved to 117 West 48th street in New York City to start his own mouthpiece business. During the 1950s he briefly moved to Freeport on Long Island, NY, before moving his business to Pompano Beach, Florida in the late 1950s. He later sold the company to Ben Harrod who continued to produce and hand finish mouthpieces under the Otto Link name during the 1960s/70s. Today, Otto Link mouthpieces are produced and distributed by the J.J. Babbitt company in Elkhart, Indiana.
