  1. Reeds
    Hey guys, I'm exploring the many avenues of mouthpieces lately and I picked up a link 5* for next to nothing. I tried V12's and they didn't take to well (they squeaked on every articulation) when they worked perfectly fine on my selmer C*. I narrowed the rails towards the top of the reed so...
  2. Tenor mpc
    Hello all, For Christmas, I get a new tenor sax mouthpiece, an Otto Link 7*. To my glorious delight, when I tried it out Christmas Day, not a sustainable sound could be made. At first I thought it was just me, since I was jumping from my Selmer C* Soloist's 90 tip to the Links 105, but when I...
  3. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Greetings all! I recently came across this double ring super tone master and was hoping to get some advice on what to do with it. The tip, rails, and table are immaculate. It's a 5, so a pea shooter for most pros. I've never been a big vintage mouthpiece guy, so my questions are as follows: 1...

  6. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hi! Someone is offering me an Otto Link Tone Master mouthpiece for tenor sax. It seems to be one of the early models. The problem is that it's not in the best condition. I'll attach some photos. The price would be around $120 USD. Is it a good deal? Will I be able to use it as my primary...

    Can you tell the difference between a £40 mouthpiece vs a £1000 mouthpiece? Hi everyone I thought I'd post my latest Vlog post to the forum to find out if my fellow SOTW's can hear a difference between a £40 stock Yanagisawa plastic mouthpiece and a £1000 Otto Link Slant Sig! I started...
  8. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Ok, so I found this Tenor mouthpiece while cleaning up my attic. I know for sure it is at least an Otto Link "Super" Tone Master, but my friend thinks it may be one of the "Super" Tone Masters made in Florida (Which are exceptionally more valuable). I need help finding the differences between...
  9. Clarinet Mouthpieces
    Good afternoon everyone, I have an old clarinet mouthpiece that I was advised by our local music store gentleman to investigate further, as he had not seen one. I am getting rid of my old student b flat clarinet (which isn't worth anything), but on it I had my grandfathers mouthpiece. It has a...

    Testing Otto Link Vintage Series 7*
  11. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I've recently purchased a Link STM 5* for my Bari and when I was looking for a metal mpc, I noticed the very well known ''Theo Wanne'' mpcs. Are these worth it?? It seems like 795 is alot for a mpc when you can get the same out of a link or dukoff.:|:|:|
  12. Tenor mpc
    A friend just sent me an Early Babbitt Tone Edge 5* for trial and I could not resist the tempation to compare it to my Florida Slant 8 in sounds and pics. This was a fast shot sonically, so don't expect too much. The drop of the body down to the beak looks familiar and matches what I have...
  13. Alto mpc
    Hi all, This is my first post. I live in Australia and I play the alto. I've been playing for 30 years (classical training, soul/rock bands, now soulful jazz/fusion). I'm having a hard time finding a mouthpiece that suits me. I used to play a Link STM 8 for years and I loved it but I sold it...
  14. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    So I have been doing a bit of interweb research trying to identify the characteristics of the early round chamber Otto Link sopranos with a small round chamber. There is an interesting thread in which Horned Toad posted some pictures of older iterations of OLHR small chambers to some...

    Hey SOTW I began on bari playing a s80 c* which, i never tuned my setup on baritone, but it seemed to be working fine, i don't know if i could do better. this was for classical and jazz, and it was all my school had. I suck on a s80 c* alto, but have no problems on baritone, for alto, i use a...
  16. Tenor mpc
    Today I got my Tonemaster 5* after it had travelled for more than six weeks from the US to Hamburg by ship and then on to Cologne. I got this one from Lea (thanks a lot) and was curious what it would sound like because it had not been opened and had just got a very good service be Ben Allen who...

  19. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi all, I'm thinking about selling about my Early Babbit 8 tenor mouthpiece. It's a hard rubber piece and was made in the late 70s. It's not in mint condition but it's in pretty good condition, with all of the chain on the back and lettering intact, just a little faded in some spots...
