Otto Link Vintage Series Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone MouthpieceSeveral years in the making, the Otto Link Hard Rubber Vintage mouthpiece recaptures the sound of early Otto Links. A combination of changes both inside and out; body shape, bore, chamber, baffle, side rails and tuning, recaptures the Otto Link sound of yesteryear, setting it apart from the current Otto Link. Although today's Otto Link is loved by thousands of players around the world, you may be longing to recapture the old Link sound. The Otto Link Vintage is exactly what you're looking for. Otto Link Vintage is available in the same standard tip openings as current Otto Link models. Each mouthpiece is individually serial numbered and comes with a ligature and cap.

This mouthpiece captures the smooth sound of the standard Otto Link hard rubber while being very free blowing. I have an 8* model and it compares with my Jody Jazz 8* in ease of playing. The Jody Jazz is somewhat brighter and can be prone to squeak on certain notes if you don't watch your ombishure. A limitation may be that the Jody Jazz grabs the low notes with just a bit more facility. This is a tradeoff but I lean toward the Link Vintage.You will have a good accesory if you buy this.
I bought this mouthpiece after buying a couple of the metal vintage ones. I love the metal model but I was curious anyway. The metal one I currently play is an 8* so I got the hard rubber 8* too. It's easier to make the hard rubber one Buzz and it's a little dryer. The metal one is brighter and darker at the same time compared to the Hard rubber model. It's also easier to make the metal one gutbucket if you know what I mean. The hard rubber one might work better for someone who wants to change their tone more often like a studio player might need. I coupled it with a Selmer inverted ligature which fits it perfectly and really allows it to resonate a great deal. Fibracell reeds work great with both models.
All I can say is wow! For the money, the best piece I've played. It's fat, warm, edgy, rich with lots of color. In a word, it's complex. I have the vintage Link metal and this one blows it away. I have the 7* and I've tried a lot of reed combos with it but my fave is a Java Red 3 or a V16 3 1/2 filed down to about a 3 (the filing gives it a lot of edge). Use the Francois Louis lig on it. It makes a huge difference. Great piece. Buy it.
MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT REED KIND! Every Mouthpiece, regardless of make and model, has its required reed for optimal performance and sound. Its not a matter of looking for a mouthpiece for your reed. I tried an Otto Link HR 7*, This one works great with a filed reed sucha as Rico Jazz Select 3S. Beautiful sound and projection. Not as Dark as tjhe OL Vintage Metal because it has a slight roll over Baffle at the beggining of the tip opening.
I bought this mouthpiece to use with my Yamaha 475 tenor sax to use in my middle school jazz ensemble. It makes a really great tone! Otto Link has really recaptured the sound of vintage jazz saxophonists. With a Vandoren JAVA 2.5 reed, it can add a little bit of edge to the sound. I would highly reccomend this piece to any jazz, blues, or rock saxophonist who wants an awesome vintage sound. -Eric
