    Hello Everyone! I just want to start off saying that this is is my first posting. After purchasing a vintage conn Tenor and going down the rabbit hole of learning about what it is, I discovered that it is a Naked Lady Transitional from 1934. Now After dragging this thing around with me for a...

    A friend is playing my Link Eburnated Bar NY Slant. He recently found another similar mouthpiece in the case of an old tenor sax he bought. While my Slant has more and smaller "chain" elements, his Slant shows larger and fewer elements in the chain. Is there any explanation for this? Thanks.

    Anybody playing these? I'm playing a Four **** refaced to a 6* by Nicolas Trefeil and really like it, it did take a little getting used to

  5. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Yesterday I had a revelation. I’ve been frustrated for a while about my soprano mouthpiece(s). Yesterday I suddenly remembered that I also have an Otto Link TM (6*) that I had considered too steep for me for now. I put it on the soprano and it played like a dream compared to my other mp’s. I...

    Hello All, I am searching for a refacer in Wisconsin that I could send a cheap modern/new Otto link TE Alto sax MP to reface and customize for the sound I'm searching for. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi, SOTW! I've been revising my hardware a little, have sold some stuff out of the accumulated collection, and am looking for some recommendations. For my baritone, I'm playing a well worn Conn 12M saxophone. Mouthpieces I have and like: Otto Link Tone Edge (hard rubber) 7. Guy Hawkins...
  9. Ligatures
    Hi folks, Anyone knows when Otto Link ligatures became as they are today? Did it change in 60s, 70s, 80s, etc.? Someone is selling a couple of old Otto Link ligatures. He doesn't know how old and I don't have images of them. I heard the old Link ligatures were very good. I tried 4 of the recent...

    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.

    I got this piece and an STM EB 9 with sax I bought, I'll probably put to sale both and I would need a clarification on this Tone Edge, so I can price it accordingly. It plays fine, I think brighter for HR mpc., but can't judge it properly as I never played any HR Link before. Need a word from...

    I have had one of those for a couple of months, and when I could get another one I did not hesitate. I have got the second one here for trial, and I'm surprised how different they are concerning built, tone and attack. They both came with original accessoires (lig with 'T' engraved, cap and...

  14. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    After several decades away from my horn, I've been playing with a concert band and a dance band for the last few years. I have no pretensions of being a soloist in either group -- I just enjoy playing. Currently, I'm playing a Yamaha YAS-475 with Vandoren 2.5 reeds, and the aforementioned...

    I just found an old Otto Link MASTER Link (with the cut in rails). Appears to be one of the oldest models double band reads OTTO LINK & CO NEW YORK, also engraved along table SERIES C 14, FACING NO. 3 1. It looks like the old heat-miser was using it as the bite plate is melted. Is there a...

    I acquired this Link STM 7* is ~1992 and it's one of my favorite mouthpieces. Just curious if someone can help date it - not interested in selling, just pure curiosity. My best guess based on Theo Wanne's site is that it's an STM USA from the '60s. Here are some details, along with photos...

    I'm digging a bit deeper into the history of my favourite mouthpieces: I own a Tonemaster from the 40s as well as Double Rings from the early (NY) and late (Florida) 50s. My pieces have lost the gold plating, but I find there is brass underneath. I have learned about the geometry of the...
  18. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hello, A while ago I bought an Otto Link Tone Edge for my tenor and much to my dismay it was a piece of garbage due to manufacturing defects. I don't really want to pay as much as the thing costed already to get it fixed, and the return window on the website I got it on (Amazon) has expired. My...

    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...
