Wolfe Tayne metal

Does anyone have or have played a metal Wolfe Tayne #6 on alto sax ? I have read they are a good piece for the price and also they play better on newer horns as opposed to old, as in horns from the 20s -30s , example : Buescher true tone . Also wondering if they fall into the Brilhart level aire type of piece sound wise , play wise . Thanks

They are nothing like a Level Air. They are 'rollover baffle' pieces like a Link. Wolfe Tannenbaum was an engineer at Otto Link. I've always played high-baffle pieces myself. I tried a WT back when they were in music stores and it wasn't good for me. If you like Link, etc., you could probably use one.
