Otto Link Tone Edge or Similar MP

I have a decent Otto link Tone Edge HR in 7*. I have worked on it and it plays nice and has great "Getzy" Tone but I would like it to be louder. Is there anything that can be done to make this MP louder. Would opening the tip up more make it louder without changing the tone to much?

A longer facing length will make it darker, not louder.

Opening it will make it darker and more spread.

Big tone edges have a very different sound than smaller ones

Frankly, they get even nicer when smaller. Bigger can get blatty if you dont focus your sound. Also the buzz vibe changes.

If you like it dont change it.

And by the way, opening the piece only a half step...or even a full step will only yield marginal results with volume.

shameless plug...my Sapphire piece is very link like...not as dark and cavernous as a TE but you will still get that vibe and considerably more projection.
