Here we have an Otto Link true ‘Early Babbitt’ Tone Edge. This is the fat body model with the smaller chamber and clamshell baffle. This has the original 7* stamp on the side and an untouched facing. The piece is very loud and projecting with both edge and warmth and a significant power. Plays very well as is, people often have these set up but this is a blaster already.
Beautiful Original Otto Link Tonemaster tenor piece, cap and lig set. Original 4* facing in good condition, normal wear and scratches but overall quite good. This is the later model close to the Bluetrain type. These go great on an SBA tenor of course or early MK VI but will bring the Mojo to any combination.
This is a beautiful original no USA FL 9* tenor piece, nothing has been done to this one. I measured that right at .115. If you have the chops to play this size these are great. This one I remember as a huge sound and very sparkly.
Otto Link 9* FL no USA refaced by Stephan Kammerer and stamped as such. The work looks very nice, says .115. I measured it at .117 but tools vary. Great piece for the large size players.
Here we have an Otto Link 6* no USA all original tenor piece. This is a middle or later design of the no USA period with the slightly longer step baffle instead of the earlier roll-over design. This is the archetypal blue note hard bop tone machine.
This is the rare W.T facing otto Link Super Tone Master, early Florida construction with no USA stamp. These pieces were designed for extra brightness at and without the need for harder reeds. This piece is plenty bright and edgy and very efficient at this size. Very hard to find in original condition.
Here we have an Otto Link early FL original 6 facing, untouched and in amazing condition. This is a wonderful rare and extremely fun and tonally complex piece in a very optimal size for the period these were made in. original examples such as this are so very hard to find now. Original milling on table and tip rails and baffle are just beautiful!
This piece is a work of art. It was originally a 4* facing and I opened it to a 6** facing while retaining the original table and executing what I call a heart transplant, filling in the concave table (so-called French Curve). By doing this I avoided losing any more height on the facing from the table flattening that would have otherwise been required. The mouthpiece has not had the table reduced, nor has it had the tip shortened at all and I reached .097.
I also maintained a very original baffle and tip rail configuration. The piece plays exceptionally concisely with a very popping bebop articulation. The tone is characteristically thick as Slants are yet is also thrillingly compact with plenty of sizzle on top.
This is as rare as it gets, Otto Link Original mint condition 7 untouched facing and table. Good luck finding this type of thing anywhere. Beautiful original tip, baffle and original milling on table. This is very very fun to play and a ridiculous find.
Otto Link Original 4* New York ‘long bite’ tenor piece. This piece is all original, unaltered rare and plays very nicely at this size with some harder reeds. Very hard to find unaltered Dr Links now.
