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 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.

Evaluating the Otto Link Metal

By 

from San Diego, CA

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

My opinion on the Metal Otto Link Tenor Mouthpiece

By 

from Forest Hill, Maryland

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Nothing better

By 

from Hillsboro, OR

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have a 7* now for several years. It is not perfect - it gets a bit thinner and "sharper" in the upper registers, it is a princess in terms of picking the right reed - a wrong reed or weared out reed becomes obvious immediately in terms of sound. And yes, the manufacturing quality is quite a bit inferior compared to some other manufacturers. BUT: I have tried many other mouthpieces since, searching the ideal mouthpiece. Nothing came close to the good old Link in terms of flexibility of sound (it can sound very warm, soft and mellow, but also "funky" and loud when pushed), no other piece has this full, rich, "ideal" saxophone sound, no other piece gave me the same easy responding, full, fat sound at the bottom (not even the NY version of this piece). So I will stick with it, probably forever...

Wonderful and Powerful Mouthpieces

By 

from Vallejo, CA

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Great mouthpiece

By 

from Utah

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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

Wonderful Mouthpieces...

By 

from Vallejo, CA

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Versatile mouthpiece

By 

from NC

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I must say the Link took a little while to get used to, but now I wouldn't be without it. I play mostly in church, and I need to be able to play low and soft, as well as loud and high. I easily am able to do both. It mates very well with my VI. I also like the lig, it's easy to work with. Just hold the reed in place with one hand and tighten with the other. I've always done that anyway. One caution. When your reed is done, with this piece it is done. I have been playing with an older reed, and bam, squeak. Get that thing off. No amount of tlc will help. It is unforgiving in this area.

I "Noticed" a "Coltrane Moment"

By 

from Scituate, MA

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Fine moutpiece, but not best...

By 

from Ontario,CA

Site Member

Comments about Otto Link Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I think this mouthpiece is great, but I needed a procedure done on it to make it play like it does. Even with the procedure, the mouthpiece doesn't work well with some instruments, and doesn't work as hard as some other mouthpieces do, to get you easy altissimo and low notes. This is my opinion. However it seems to work very well with most Yamahas that I have used.
