"Very much the default mouthpiece for a large proportion of tenor players. A quite neutral mouthpiece allowing a player great potential to shape their own sound. Harmonically these pieces are extremely well balanced- a full core tone with, well, as much or as little 'edge' as a player applies (excellent for recording). The stock ligatures- though adequate- can definitely be improved on for ease of use and response. Anything which puts metal in contact with the reed rather than leather is recommended- as such BG revelation Jazz models, Rovner Versa or Francois Louis all work well." Jules@sax.co.uk
Otto Link Mouthpieces
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.
