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.
I went through a Meyer Hard Rubber, Vandoren T55 Metal, Otto Link Metal and finally the Otto Link NY. This piece is just what I needed. Easy to control and produces a big, dark and smooth sound. It is also worth every penny. I recommend it highly.
I have the Otto Link Super Tone Master 7* (0.105") and it is the most excellent piece I have tried in its price range!! It has a darker, husky sound than my Vandoren V16 T75, which is a well balanced, clean sounding piece with good intonation, and the optimum ligature for it is a nice plus, but that setup is considerably more expensive.
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.
The product details describe this mouthpiece as being able to achieve a husky tone. I've only tried one, an 8* and it is far from sounding husky. The Hard Rubber Links I have are much huskier. However it is still produces a great, phat sound with impressive projection. I'm not sure how to rate this as the description appears to be false but it is still a very respectable mouthpiece.
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!
Wow! What a great mouthpiece!! The best I've ever played. It has a great sound high or low. It also gives you amazing control of the notes you?re playing. I especially like the way I can play low C, B and Bb with this piece. The notes stay strong and solid without going out of tune. My teacher noticed a difference in my playing right away. Overall, it's the best on the market. I love the rich sound, and the darkness of the husky. This is the mouthpiece for you!
For years I had been using an E. Rousseau Jazz metal mouthpiece. The tone was great, and it blew pretty freely, but the bore size made me consistently 10-15 cents sharp. After hearing/reading people talking about the joy of Otto Link mouthpieces, I decided to pick up one of these. I went with a 7, since various charts I had consulted said this would be a little bit smaller than the Rousseau. Not only is it now easier for me to play in tune, but the tone I'm getting is unbelievable, with low notes leaping out of my horn.
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.
The big NY chamber gives the potential for some of the deepest, richest sounds possible out of a tenor, but the imprecise construction means that additional work on the piece should be anticipated in order to realize that potential. Budget accordingly. Procedures to true the table and side rails, and to eliminate the *very* large window step are worthwhile to improve response and counteract the tendency for the piece to be resistant and stuffy towards the low end. My piece has a visibly uneven rollover baffle, but that seems not to affect it much because of the fault-tolerant characteristics of the low baffle. I'm happy with the piece post-procedure (just wish I'd done it sooner), but I would be nonplussed at having to do that additional work on a piece that costs what the New York Links are going for today. Their prices are skyrocketing in a way that I frankly do not think is justified without a drastic improvement in precision.
