Very nice clean vintage Soloist opening; G. Original condition wonderful piece at hard find popular size.
This is exactly the Coltrane model, Bluetrane, Giant Steps, Soultrane etc. 41xxx and nearly brand new. It has all original pads and resos, lacquer still on the edges, could use a bit of tweaking but plays awesomely right now. Amazing crisp bright popping sound, saoring highs with the big bottom and compression. Just like the other 45xxx this is just one of those things as good as it looks and it sure looks. Serious inquiries only, you know the deal, collector’s items-
Most most luscious amazing vintage piece; SBA monster of subtly and swagger. This one is 45xxx still right in the Coltrane model design period. There is little to say other than it is amazing. It is nearly brand new, has newer pads and plays excellently. Could use a little quieting but what a thrill! A few seconds look at the pics and you will understand. Plays definitely as good or better than it looks. Super collector’s item. Don’t ask about the price if you are going to be triggered.
I just got this amazingly rare and special piece, an otto Link 4-ring transitional piece from Tonemaster to ‘Super’ Tonemaster; this is the first Super Tonemaster before the ‘Double Ring”. It is a NY production piece from the Otto Link (not Florida, Ben Harrod). This has the first super tonemaster body and from my feeling a slightly different chamber from Tonemaster as well, but not exactly the same as double ring. Of course the double rings models vary plenty amongst themselves but this still feels a bit different to me.
This type of piece was immortalized in photos of John Coltrane, specifically this set by Charles Stewart taken in 1964. He was always switching mouthpieces of course but it is interesting that this is somewhere near the ‘Love Supreme” recording time period.
These pieces speak for themselves. This is the most popular model and facing size of all metal Otto Links and with good reason. This one is an original player that received back in trade from a NY Pro who bought it from me many years back. As I remember, a great piece.
Here is a FL Otto Link ‘USA’ stamped tenor piece faced at 7*. This is basically original in every way except for a very very subtle rail balancing I did many years back, just received in trade from a Ny pro. Great piece as I remember.
Wonderfully chocolatey rich semi dark and very projecting vintage Selmer Soloist tenor saxophone mouthpiece meticulously crafted to .100 (7) tip size. This features an Early Babbitt style flat baffle allowing for nice upper range venting, a big fat sound and much precision. Don’t sleep on the old Selmer Soloists!
Original Otto Link “Reso Chamber” tenor mouthpiece. This is obviously all original, but the facing appears a bit worn. I suggest either a reface or at least an optimization. The piece is in nice shape and does not appear to have been worked on but probably just seen some action.
Very VERY nice playing fully vintage vibed no USA Otto Link FL .100 beautifully optimized, “Marinated”!
