I need a new Tenor Mouthpiece

by Josh
(Virginia)

Hey everyone,

I need a new Tenor sax mouthpiece. Sadly I dropped my much loved Berg Larsen on the ground and it chipped and cracked. I am very distraught and upset, however I now have the opportunity to get a metal mouthpiece as I have always wanted. I play mostly Jazz music and nothing much besides that. I really want a mouthpiece with a good warm tone, not really bright but not to dark. I also don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it. I was considering either an Otto Link or a metal Berg. I was also wondering what all the numbers and letters meant when reffering to the different models. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I always love learning things from people who know a lot more than I do. Thanks for all your help!

Otto Links rock!
by: Anonymous

I bought a metal Otto Link 7* over the summer and I love it! I got it from Woodwind and Brasswind and I think it's down to $135 now. The sound is dark and open and it's really pleasant to play on, although you might have to jump down a reed strength at first.

Good luck!
