Otto Link FL USA 8 near mint original EXC Player

Very clean FL USA Otto Link 8 original facing in very clean condition.  This kit includes original box, lig, and cap.  Normally I play below 7* and 8 would feel a bit more work to play but this one played very easy for me and surprisingly bright as well.  Add the hugeness of an 8 opening and the tone + response is quite compelling.  I tried it on a number of horns and it was friendly to them across the board.  Overall it is surprisingly good for an original of the shelf FL Link with an untouched facing.  I cannot complain and could be happy with this piece as a main blower.
