    Not long ago I made a thread talking about my decision to buy either a Selmer Mark VII or a Cannonball vintage reborn. As you can see I got neither, as my opinion was swayed by literally one youtube video (Link below) and I fell in love instantly. I took to Reverb and found a nice looking...

    Hi, I am trying a Slant Tone Edge (seems and was told is vintage), which sounds incredible despite chipped tip. While trying to identify the piece, there are two aspects that are intriguing and I have not been able to find an answer to explain them despite extensive search. First , it has a...

    Curious if anyone does this.
  7. Alto mpc
    I've read various articles in regards to this, but i'm really troubled on a 2nd mouthpiece choice i currently use an AL3 with a rico h, legere SS 2.5. which i've always loved and is very easy to use. I may return the otto link stm 6* i bought in order to demo, but it's very difficult to try out...
  8. Alto mpc
    I have been considering trying out a metal mouthpiece on my alto sax (YAS- 62 MkIII), and have narrowed it down to these two pieces based on reviews and price. However, I can't try them out myself as none of my local shops allow for mouthpiece testing, and don't carry either of these pieces...

    This is an amazing Reso 7* in really great condition. It has been expertely refaced by the great Eric Falcon, probably one of the best refaces out there The work that Eric did on this piece is outstanding. Plays easy with a full, warm and vibrant sound in the whole register of the horn. Think...

    Wanted to share... This is one of two vintage Otto's I discovered during a used buy I did this weekend. The horn was a Big B tenor circa 1926. The otto's were stuffed in a bag with random ligatures, cracked moutpieces, about 20 reeds akimbo, several swabs, and other detritus. I did a vinegar...

    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...

    I've got a metal Otto Link STM 6*, but I think I get to much spread in my tone. It sounds like a sinus, taking away much overtones. I've also got a Vandoren T25 with a great sound, dark and full bodied with some edge. So basically I've got my classical/ensemble mouthpiece all set, but I'm not...

    I have an Otto Link Super Tone Master I picked up at Junkdude the a while back and I was looking at buying a tone-edge and shipping over to Phil-Tone to be worked on. Do you think they might buy the Super Tone Master back for a little bit less than what I bought it for? And how much is a good...
  16. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    Hello, I am completely new to playing tenor saxophone. I am just about to order me a saxophone from Woodwind & Brasswind company, their WWTS black nickel Tenor Saxophone and it does not ship with a mouthpiece. I was looking at the Otto Link HR 5 mouthpiece (accompanied with Rico select jazz...
  17. Alto mpc
    I'm prolly wrong but it seems that everbody that uses a modern Link uses AT LEAST a 7. Look at this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grjWx8YeFok He is useing a 10*! Reading customor reviews most use 7, 7*, 8, and 8* I guess what I'm asking is is this MPC just feel like a smaller tip then it...
