Hi!

I have this Otto Link Tone Edge #7 for alto and I really like this mouthpiece. It's a bit resistant and very focused as Link's are generally considered as "spread" sounding mouthpieces. Today I noticed this thing when pulling the mouthpiece out of my sax's neck. The right side rail has a pit in the midway of the rail. There's some material missing from that spot. The rail is thinner in that spot compared to the left rail in the same spot.

So, my question is that what affect can this have on the mouthpiece and it's playability? Is it worth of repairing or leave it as is?

Thanks!

Does the reed seal, that is, pass the pop test? If so, don’t worry about it. If the “pit” (it’s hard to see in your photo) doesn’t span the width of the rail, don’t worry about it. If the mouthpiece plays OK, don’t worry about it.
Seriously, it doesn’t look bad to me.
