    Would appreciate everybody’s input on this mouthpiece. Slightly slimmer body then a slant signature I have. Do you think this is a Florida or a Babbit? Pleasant surprise in a horn I just purchased. First post here. Thanks for your opinion.
  2. Tenor mpc
    I'm proud to announce Saxscape is now making a Florida tenor model, a tribute to the great Early Babbitt Florida Otto Links. Just trying to make a piece that stays more within the boundaries of the older traditions of mouthpiece making, and gets that classic Link vibe while still being...

    Anyone played this one yet? I'm still waiting for mine, I hope it will arrive next week. I played Florida's my whole life, I'm very curious how this one feels.

  6. Tenor mpc
    I got this Link Slant Florida 5* (incl. original box) in an excellent condition today and had to compare it to my Slant Florida 8 (just too curious...). I found that the pieces feature the same measurements and design (milling lines), even the baffles looked quite similar. But then I saw that...

  11. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Just wanted to give some more praise to Sakshama Koloski and his work. Just came back from a really nice time at his place where I picked up one his Floridas at .130. I emailed him before with some suggestions, tone influences, tip opening preference, etc, and he went from there. This piece is a...
  12. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I have a problem with my Florida Link.....Like all Florida's the laquer has come of, now for the first time the oxidation, the green/blue stuff, is making it impossible to play. I taste it and the stuff is really poison. If i leave the reed on it gets blue. I now try to coat it with blanco nail...
  13. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Hi there! I play tenor and I recently switched to a Guardala MBII (refaced by Dave Jary) from a Florida Otto Link 6... I like the Guardala a lot more, because it suits my style a lot better and gives me a more modern, bright sound. But that's besides the point. I still love my Florida Link...
