The Otto Link Vintage mouthpiece recaptures 'the sound' of early Otto Links
The Otto Link "Vintage" Hard Rubber/Ebonite mouthpiece is meticulously crafted to emulate the renowned and sought-after "Slant" Links. Years of development went into creating this mouthpiece, dedicated to recapturing the distinctive sound of early Otto Links.
Through a series of modifications to both the internal and external features—such as body shape, bore, chamber, baffle, side rails, and tuning—the Otto Link Vintage mouthpiece faithfully reproduces the vintage Otto Link sound, distinguishing itself from the contemporary Otto Link.
While today's Otto Link mouthpieces are cherished by countless musicians worldwide, there may be a yearning to rediscover the classic Link sound. The Otto Link Vintage offers a solution for those seeking to recapture that old-school Link experience.
Each mouthpiece comes complete with a ligature and cap.

Having some idea of what I'd expected a 'vintage' sounding Otto Link to sound like, these 'pieces came as something of a surprise. This is a mouthpiece with a noticeably more edge and projection than a modern Link. What you have here is an extremely easy blowing design with potential for a lot of tonal flexibility. Well made, versatile & not quite what you'd expect. Jules@sax.co.uk
"Link recognised that players were searching for the old models as they were a little different. Now, they've produced a new 'vintage' model based on those '60's classics that is freer blowing with a more dynamic response. It has a little more edge than the normal Tone Edge model and allows you to play in a multitude of different musical genre's. The 7* I tested worked well with a 2/1/2 or 3 red box Java reed - great for a Stan Getz sound." Paul - firstname.lastname@example.org
