Listen to anyone from the 1950's who is not an RnB player.

However, they made the sound; the mouthpiece was only part if it.

Otto Link NY (new model) is what I am familiar with. It can be a very versatile mouthpiece in the right hands (or should I say mouth). Even R&B players like Greg Piccolo and Jimmy Forrest use/used a Link and get a very rich R&B tone. I use one on my Blues/Rock gigs and sound anyway I want, from Traditional jazz to Jr. Walker.

Chu for what it's worth go to my Myspace page and if you hear Lonnie's Lament that's a NY Link (new modern)on a Conn 10M

The mouthpiece alone won't get you there but if you're talking about a Tonemaster see my NY model on my website. The Tonemasters were sucky though.

FWIW I have a refaced Tonemaster that is the bee's knees. Although it looks like the baffle was brought up a tiny bit in the process of opening it up to a 7, so I can't speak for the originals. This piece is sooo flexible, I can go from Prez to piercing and anywhere in between in under a second flat!
