I'd like to have your opinion about the combinaison of a Buescher tt (1923) and an Otto Link master (1930's). Do you think that this is the best mouthpiece for this kind of sax?
Interesting that the Bergs worked for you on the TT alto, but I don't know much about Bergs. What are the chamber / baffles like on yours?You're right Dave, there's not best mouthpiece but certain mouthpiece/sax combos work better. In my experience Buescher TTs may have intonation issues if they are not paired with the right mouthpiece. This is the list of mouthpieces which worked for my on alto TTs:
- Otto Link TE 7
- Peter Ponzol M2 90
- Berg Larsen 85 2/M
- Berg Larsen 85 3/M
- Brancher J 24 (metal)
The only mouthpiece I remember didn't work with TTs was a metal Yanagisawa 5.
