Staff Reviews

A full warm and round sound with plenty of character. Clearly in the Otto Link vein but with a slightly smaller chamber which just allows for that extra bit of kick when you really give it some.

I tried out the T7 model and found the piece to have quite a bit of resistance due to the short facing curve, which gave me the flexibility to get that extra bit of volume when I needed it, without the high notes becoming too hard to control.

Still fairly easy to play all over the saxophone, despite the resistance, and a great piece for those seeking a flexible Jazz piece that could do the quartet gigs and the Big Band solos.

This is a 'piece that is well suited to lead tenor playing in a big band. It has an open chamber and has a West Coast 'cool jazz' feel. Very responsive, easy to control & full sounding in all registers. I liked Java 2 and V16 reeds with this 'piece.
