Here we have a truly great mouthpiece, in mint original condition. This is not the Florida blank that is often referred to as Early Babbitt, this is the true early BABBIT blank. It does not have the high drop to the beak, but it has a high floor inside, smaller chamber and very long baffle. This is an apex player Otto Link.
This one is stamped 8, though the tip size measures right around .115. The facing, table, tip baffle etc are all untouched factory condition and the piece plays EXCELLENTLY! it’s just a bit big for my comfort zone, (I usually plays 6*-7) but even for me it is extremely easy to play. It is VERY LOUD if you want it to be, yes also has a really large territory of sound inside. It can play very broad yet still somehow retains this bright focused and easily controllable structure to the sound. It is extremely fun to play. This is like an “IT” mouthpiece for Otto Link lovers.
If it was a 7 or even 7* I would not be selling this at all.
