Having moved from a Meyer G series hard rubber to the Otto Link metal, I found the Link providing greater ease in reaching low octave C, B, and B flat. The tone is a bit raspier and airy but mildly so. Consistent tone in upper registers also a plus. Generally speaking it's a mpc worth the money.
HOWEVER, THE LIGATURE IS A PIECE OF JUNK!! After just 2 hours of playing, the metal plate separated from the screw and is now essentially useless. Since all my other tenor ligatures would not fit the Otto metal, I had to temporarily adapt an alto ligature until I could order a decent replacement.
This is my first metal mouthpiece I've ever had the privileged to purchase, and need I say... Its amazing! People have always told me "It's harder to play on a metal mouthpiece.' I personally found that this mouthpiece increased my range. I could go Low Bb - Altissimo A on my Educator, with this I can easily hit Low Bb - Altissimo E. The tone is superior to any other mouthpiece I've ever used, design is beautiful. Although the ligature finish wears away rather fast. The ligature itself is actually a good design, you never really have to take it of except for if you want to polish the mouthpiece. All in all its a great buy.
The otto link metal is a great proffessional mouthpiece. It looks great and plays great. I accompanied mine with a rovner eddie daniels and I got a great tone. I reccomend not to use the ligature they give you because it doesn't last long and isn't all that great.
These are wonderful and pwerful mouthpieces, I use Otto Links exclusively for many years now and they always deliver with any situation. Many people have complained about them not being the Florida Otto Links the masters played, but I say people don't have the talent the masters had. These mouthpieces are wonderful, warmth of tone, ease of control and expression, very versitile and powerful. I can have a tone similar to Boney James or Richard Elliot, Ernie Watts or Colman Hawkins, I can even use them in classical music!
As a tip, if you find the mouthpiece is too woofy are stuffy sounding try using a softer reed, it will definately liven things up. Another tip about the ligature, while the ligature is nice, a Selmer ligature or even a soprano sax ligature will give the tone a nice boost.
With my experience with these mouthpieces theres no need to purchase several of the same facing and choose the best playing one, just buy one and once you get used to the very large chamber you will see why these mouthpieces have been the standard for so many years.
A great metal mouthpiece for jazz or any type of contemperary music. I play a 7* on tenor with zz strength 3 reeds and a Francois Louis Ultimate ligature. Sound is ver versatile. Takes time to really get to know these mouthpieces, but well worth it. I prefer these over dukoff mouthpieces for the control.
Easy to play and great sound. Just moving the reed forward or back and changing the hardness slightly can give you tones from the soft-fluffy sounds for ballads to the hard screaming rock all on the same mouthpiece. As others have said, the ligature design sucks, if you need to tune during the gig, better check your reed position again after you do. Even with that slight inconvenience, it's the best mouthpiece for me. (I play an 8 with a Java 2).
I love how loud and easy this mouthpiece plays. Intonation was a little problem at first but once you warm the metal up and get used the a metal mouthpiece I guarentee you won't switch back.
I absolutely loved this mouthpiece. When I bought one my friends became so jealous of its beauty, amazing sound, and great response they also had to go out and buy one. Only flaw was the Otto link ligature it came with. I found it awkward and clunky but the mouthpiece works great with a rovner ligature. Overall very good mouthpiece
I don't know why, after all these years playing, I never tried a Link.Seems like most of my heroes play on these things...I bought the 7* STM for tenor, and play on a Mauriat RU66, as well as Keilwerth SR90, and a few chinese tenors that play great, as well. This mouthpiece sounds great on all of them, especially in the studio, for recording. It plays very easily, low or high, and into altissimo range. It has a big, versatile sound, nice power without any harshness, and plenty of complexity, with a big core, and nice cry around the edges. I disagree with other reviewers about the included lig. I love it, and don't find it to be cheap at all. It sounds great with the mouthpiece. I think the problem others are having is that the tightening screw sticks out a bit, and causes leveraging when twisting the mouthpiece for tuning, thus tweaking the reed to the side.I use plenty of cork grease, and the mouthpiece sits on the neck so well, that I can be more gentle, and never have the twisting problem. (Also, I twist with my palm and fingers on top of the mouthpiece.) If you really hate the lig, I found that a Rovner EVO lig works very well with this piece, and doesn't have the "sticking to the metal" problem the older Rovner's had. For me, this combination is a little too mellow, though, and the stock lig has a little more edge, which this piece likes to have... This is a wonderful piece for recording, and I would think it could be used on any type of material, especially straight ahead jazz, or pop. In a live rock band setting, it has enough power, but might not have enough edge to fit in to the context of edgy guitars and keys... Also, the 7* was just about what I expected in terms of opening feel,using as a reference Dukoffs, Lakeys, Vandorens, and Rico graftonite pieces,which I have with #7 openings.Some of these pieces sound more in line when played in a loud rock situation, but are not as easy or enjoyable to play, in my opinion. The price tag for this piece makes it a great value, especially when compared to the boutique pieces out there, which don't seem to be any better, (or even as good), as this piece in terms of sound, power, ease of play,versatility, and even looks. Highly recommended!
I ordered the Otto Link Super Tone Master gold-plated bell metal saxophone mouthpiece for my 2002 Jupiter Deluxe Tenor Sax in a 7* (0.105") recently.
This is the best mouthpiece I've ever played on this sax since it was new (2002). I like it better than any mpc I've tried, and I've tried practically every rubber type under $100 or so. The Otto's beak is not as fat as some of the rubber ones, It even fits nicely on the crook. I'm using the clumsy Otto Link metal ligature that came with the mouthpiece. It's a little cumbersome to work with, but it does the job, and the mouthpiece sounds great with it. They could have tried to match the color to the mouthpiece though, but no big deal. You can easily scratch the mpc with it, so be careful.
