I have a friend that plays a 10* NY. He sounds great. Give these pieces a shot.

There are some good modern Links. I have a very good STM NY that only needed to have the table leveled.

Getting a Florida does not assure a quality facing. The Florida STM pieces have a somewhat different tone than the modern Links. You get a Florida for the sound, not the facing. I bought a Florida to get that "core sound" that seems to be much less defined in the modern STM's.

To assure a really perfect facing on just about any factory-made piece, it will need to be inspected and possibly hand refaced. The total cost of a nice new shiny Link STM NY and a simple reface job by EZ or Mojo is still cheaper overall than the price that most good Florida Links go for.

What do you think about the current production Otto Link NY (metal) for tenor?Can I find a good one or do I have to consider florida links only?Bye
They are so variable - even a visual inspection shows all kinds of errors rollover baffles at different cockeyed angles and roofs on some like this ^
I would be careful ,in one shop here they were all demics.

I have a 5* and 7* modern NY Links and both played quite well out of the box.You should try some as they may vary in response. I have tried 2 others since my purchase and they played well also.
