I have tried a bunch of mouthpieces and even gone to some consistently for years, but for the last ten years or so, I've loved best my same 7* link. a great tool. I used it primarily for jazz, but can be convincing in classical music on it, too.

Otto Link ain't what it used to be. I ordered three to pick the best one out of the bunch (all 7's), and it STILL had gross insufficiencies. The table was warped (I could see the peaks and the valleys of it when i held it up to a light). The rails were unbalanced (causes uncontrollable squeaks, squeals, and chirps). And the baffle was so low that I had to use a very soft reed to get the sound I wanted (straight-ahead/post-bop). Not wanting to go give up in this marque that had such a reputation, I sent it off to be refaced. When it came back it was much better, but some of the qualities were still there. I still have to play this piece very carefully, and only JAVA reeds work on it. Save a little more and buy a Vandoren V16, JodyJazz HR*, or a handmade piece from John Thomas.

I would recommend this to any level of a Jazz Saxophonist

By 

from Orlando, FL

About Me Experienced

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Good Quality
  • Great Intonation
  • Improves Sound

Cons

  • Hard to Bend
  • Poor Quality Ligature

Best Uses

  • Concerts
  • Practicing

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

It is very responsive and free-flowing, and is especially good with a Jazz Reed (I use Vandoren ZZ). If I was a person getting a Jazz mouthpiece for the first time, I would get this mouthpiece, and if you are a Saxophone instructor, I would tell your student to get this mouthpiece. However, for me it was very hard to bend the notes when I tried it for the first time. I would also recommend for you to get an upgraded ligature. But overall, I was very impressed with this mouthpiece.

Smooths out my rough edges

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I play a Selmer balanced action tenor and have always had trouble keeping my high register in tune. This mouthpiece fixes that problem, and the rest of my notes are close to the mark also. Great mouthpiece, reasonable price.

Pretty Good, But..

By

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This is actually the stock mouthpiece that I've had since I started playing. It has a good mellow tone and man the low notes come out beautifully. It gets slightly worse (not too much) as you go up the range of the horn. Mine is only a 6* and I'm used to playing a 7*, so it's really not loud or open enough for me. I'm sure a 7 or 8 would be better, but since I've already had this one, I'm not gonna bother getting another one. This is a decent beginner mouthpiece, and I know a metal otto link is sort of a "Standard" for the tenor mouthpiece. I've been looking at Jody Jazz and Van Doren v16 and trying to figure out which of those will be better; the otto link just doesn't cut it for me anymore. I would experiment between this and some other mouthpieces like Jody Jazz or Vandoren and see what works for you.

Totally Satisfying

By

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Totally the best mpc I own!! I purchased the 5* and is just what I;ve been looking for as in I have total control. Granted it doesn't have the gowl that a larger tip opening has however it plays with incredible control and makes me sound like I should be out earning money with it. I don't know why some people complain about these or maybe I just got the best one ever made, but I love it. I'm using a Rico H lig. Thanks guys!!

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I actually bought mine second-hand, in a 6 opening. Excellent piece. If you were like me, and didn't know where to go when buying a new mouthpiece, do yourself a favour and go and get this.

A good product

By 

from Roanoke, VA

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

My experience with this mouthpiece is very positive. I have an 8* version and get a good full tone. Further I find it very playable when used with a 1 1/2 synthetic reed. I am a hobbiest and not a professional so I don't know every nuance of music hardware but I just don't find a downside to this product. I would recommend it without reservation based on the performance and price.

Versatile and Reliable

By

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

a rubber otto link 7 or 7* is really the staple jazz tenor mouthpiece. I ordered three and picked one just the other day, and I am very satisfied. Warm, velvety, dark sound with plenty of edge and bite. Paired with rico unfiled 3 medium jazz selects you cant go wrong. I also got a rico H lig that really boosts the tone and compliments this piece well. You cant go wrong with a good otto link

This mouthpiece is really good, but....

By 

from CA

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I really enjoy this mouthpiece. It was recommended to me by a fellow musician who uses an HR Link as part of his classical set up. The mouthpiece has really great tone in the upper register and give the lows some really good flavor. My only complaint is that I have a lot of trouble reaching notes in the low register with this mouthpiece. I don't know whether it may be the read or me, but still, I recommend this mouthpiece for both jazz and classical.
