I was sick of the hard rubber sound and how picky it was with reeds, so I ordered myself an Otto Link. I absolutely love playing it and it is very comfortable to play. (Although, be willing to go down a reed strength. Also, you might want to try a couple of different tip openings). I was also playing "Moment's Notice" this morning and on a certain note, I had a Coltrane moment.
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.
I had dropped my Otto Link NY model and bent the tip and I thought I'd try a regular Otto Link and I got a 9*. I like it. I'm comfortable with the sound. It seems to say "me" all over it. For me the sound is smooth and mellow. It's got a metalic sound but it's warm.The very reason I started playing tenor in the first place about 22 years ago. The first tenor I heard live sounded like that.
I have Vintage, a NY and standard all in 9 facing, these mouthpieces are wonderful. The are very versatile and have a powerful tone to them. I certainly can get close to the sound of Ernie Watts, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, basically any legend who used/uses an Otto Link. There are some people who give these mouthpieces a bad rep because they are not Florida Links. All I can say is a Link is a Link, just as a Berg is a Berg and a Meyer is a Meyer. In order to get that sound that the masters had, you have to put in the time of practice and you have to have skill. You can purchase the most perfectly made mouthpiece is the world and you will still have issues. Take the time to get familiar with the mouthpiece, don't asume that because Dexter Gordon and John Coltrane sounded awesome on a Link you will sound the same way. The main issue we have with saxophone playing for the most part is ourselves, not the equipment. These mouthpieces are wonderful for Jazz, Rock, Country, Gospel, basically any situation you may find yourself in. Give them a try, and become truly familiar with the mouthpiece. It takes time and will not happen over night.
When I first got mine(size 7), I didnt know what to expect.After playing on the mouthpiece for 10 minutes, I realized that I found something great. A mouthpiece that has a full,phat tone effortlessly. It's a shame the band director at my high school who will remain anonymous, doesn't allow metal sax mouthpieces.
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.
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.
I read on another web site how rapent manufacturing defects were on newer Otto Link mouthpieces, so I took a good look at mine. The window, which is the opening the reed covers is out of line, and off center. With todays technology, why do they make such glaring errors in manufacturing these? And why don't they have a quality control procedure that checks for such defects, instead of sending them to the vendors? Where are these things actually made? My SR Technology mouthpiece certaily doesn't have any such problems.
I have used bergs and other metal pieces and I have two of these links, a NY tenor #8 and a regular style 7*. I find them not so focussed and clear and fast playing as a berg, and not so powerful or edgy. A bit of a wuffy, muffled sound. Sorry. This ain't the Florida style Otto Link of the '60s that masters like Dex played.
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).
