I ordered an 8* and I am very happy with it. In my opinion it beats a Berg Larsen in the dark and big sound category. This mouthpiece is not for the people who own bright mouthpieces unless you want the husky New York sound. I use a Vandoren 3.5's and I just love the sound. People debate the standard link ligature but I think it is the best to achieve the New York sound Otto Link aimed for. A Rovner somewhat mutes the sound some so I would not recommend that ligature for this mouthpiece. Production quality is not very consistent so try out a lot of the same facing to see which one you like best. I just ordered the 8* star hoping it would have a good sound. It played awesome. Berg Larsen has many chamber options from brilliant to mellow sounds (darker) so I compared the NY Otto Link to my old Berg Larsen facings: 120-3 SMS which is a French facing. Anyways good luck and I hope you love the mouthpiece. I recommend it. IT?S AWESOME!
I have played several mouthpieces through out the years and have had success with several manufacturers. I played a Rico Royal Graftonite B7 and Metalite M7, Selmer Soloist J, Beechler Diamond Inlay S10S, Bobby Dukoff D10, Berg Larsen 105/0M, all of these mouthpieces have fine response but none of them can compare to the power and versatility you get from an Otto Link!! I am a permanent endorser of these mouthpieces; I purchased the Super Tone Master 8 and Super Tone Master NY 8 with an Oleg ligature for each about a week ago. I played on the Berg Larsen and Dukoff I had been playing on for the past 3-years and then switched to the two Otto Links. Don't get me wrong Berg Larsen and Bobby Dukoff make some pretty powerful mouthpieces, but the Otto Links simply have more power, especially the NY model. When I blew into the NY 8 the tone was so big it literally shook the floor!! That is how powerful these mouthpieces are!! A word of advice though, if you are used to playing smaller bored mouthpieces, try a softer reed on the mouthpiece then move up to stronger reeds as you get used to the mouthpiece, this will make things a lot easier and allow you to develop a more powerful tone with the mouthpiece.
I have used this mouthpiece for about six years and it is amazing. I always use it for jazz. I have used a ton of different mouthpieces and none of them even come close to the Otto Link. It has a great range and excellent support, I also like to try several different brands of reeds and they all fit well on the mouthpiece. It is durable and accommodates a vide variety of dynamics. The only thing that I did not like at first was that I had a lot of vibration on my top row of teeth, but I quickly and easily fixed that by buying a rubber mouthpiece patch. They are really cheap, and I have had the same one on it for six years, so they will hold up fine, even when you wash your mouthpiece.
What seems like many years ago, I bought an Otto Link NY model 8 while I was in college. I tried three other regular Otto Links and each one of them sounded completely different. Apparently they?re inconsistent. If you're going to buy one I suggest trying at lease 4 or 5 of the same model, and the same facing because they will sound different. I loved the one I bought though. Then I lost it and tried something else. Three years ago I bought an Otto Link NY model 9*. The facing was too big and instead of getting a smaller one I tried several other mouthpieces. Dukoffs, Otto Link RG model, and a Selmer Soloist F. I played the Soloist the most. I loved the dark, dry, mellow tone. I've been playing it up until recently when I started playing in a small jazz and blues club where I didn't have a mic. I wasn't loud enough so tonight I got out my 9* and played it for just a minute or two and it already sounds amazingly better, and louder. I want loud but not Dukoff loud with that bright pop thing in it. Miles said that Trane was the loudest tenor player he ever heard, and Trane used an Otto Link 5*. Compared to the Soloist the Link is brighter. I can control it now; it's not too big for me anymore. It sounds big and warm. It's got that metallic ring over the big fat bottom, or a dark metal mouthpiece sound. I've even got some edge from it with the Rico Jazz Select Filed 2 med reed.
Many years ago I bought an Otto-Link 7* for my Selmer Mark VI Tenor, I found it was a little too bright and harsh. I recently decided to try The Otto Link New York Series Tenor Mouthpiece after buying an Otto-Link Hard Rubber 8* for my Soprano and liking it very much. The New York Series 7* is working out great on my tenor (same Mark VI), it has excellent response in the low register as well as the altissimo range. The sound is full with enough edge to cut through it all when necessary, yet it is capable of sounding sweet when desired. I am using a Rico Jazz Select 3S reed and a Rovner Ligature. I have been purchasing instruments and accessories from Woodwind & Brasswind for about the last 10 years and they have always been a pleasure to work with.
I found a NY7 I am quite happy with (I'd say it's a killer!). If it's your first experience with an Otto Link and you can afford to, then try a handful in one size and pick out what sounds best. Production quality is not consistent. They're all different. The fun part is finding the one that sounds right.
This piece is sweet! I bought the NY #8 and it blew me away. The tone can be bright and bold, or sweet and smooth. I like the quick response and the incredible tone I get from the Link. The altissimo notes are effortless, subtones are dark and dirty (that's a good thing), and the volume power it packs can blow down a brick wall.
I give it five stars because it surpassed my expectations.
Seems to be a great player. I played a Yani mp for years until I woke up one day and hated my 'bright' sound. I tried it on a whim even with all the pos/(mostly negatives) I've read about new Otto Links on saxontheweb forum. This is a gutsy piece. Altissimo is effortless. Tone, intonation, ease of playing all get high marks from me. I've never played a Florida model so comparison is a mute point. I will say though upon close inspection interior finish is rough at best (scary). Lots of grinding marks (from a dremel I assume). The rails seem a bit uneven. Also the heel of the piece is high giving it a slight concavity. Air doesn't seem to be escaping though. I'm using a Rovner dark lig with a piece of aluminum foil between the reed/lig to brighten it up ever so slightly. The orig. lig seemed to make it sound a little stuffy. I'm playing a 2-21/2 reed. I'm going to buy a 6 opening piece to see if it'll take a harder reed as my Jody Jazz ESP .100(too bright for me) works well with 31/2 as did my Yani and every other mp I have occasionally used. With all the negatives listed it still plays awesome.
This mouthpiece is amazing! I just got it and I've only played it for five minutes and I love it. does not sacrifice tone in altissimo register. I did find one problem in the C-Bb range in that it did not want to come out well. Other than that great!
I don't have a modern Link, I have a metal FL 8*. But in my opinion, the lig that seems to work the best overall for all Links is the Silver Selmer Ligature for metal mpcs. They are inexpensive, they don't slip and they work. Try it you'll like it and the WWBW still sells them.
I am waiting for the WWBW to get the new "Vintage" Links in metal and HR to try them out.
