Otto Link Tone Edge Slant Signature “Marinated” .100 Tenor Blaster

Here we have an Otto Link slant signature tenor mouthpiece, no USA, mid-period FL.  This was originally stamped 6*.  It had a poorly done reface on it and a small hole drilled for a pickup.  The hole has been perfectly filled and the facing baffle and tip restored to optimal and period-authentic specifications.

This has been set up with a late FL/EB style long shelf baffle, and a very springy low curve style facing replicated from a wonderfully playing loud and aggressive 7* original metal no USA Link I recently had here.  The result is that this piece plays very powerfully and authoritatively, which you can hear on the video.  Though it is not overly bright or in any way shrill it has impressive projection and can handle any amount of air thrown at it and respond with yet more power.

The tip size is .100, maybe .101, but on my tools it shows .100 at the back of the tip rail.  The table is flat and excellent and rails, facing tip all level and optimal, just a thrill to play.  This is an excellent model period right on the transition between the early FL to the late FL blank design.  This one particularly has a very high floor as well which is part of the fun.  Great fun player, do not miss!
