A wide selection of facings offer superior tone quality and projection
with complete control, making Otto Link a top choice of professionals.
"I can see why this mouthpiece has been enjoyed by all standards of
player for so long. It's so easy to play with an even response from top
to bottom. It may struggle in a loud big band solo but it's great for
players who want a warm sound without having to sacrifice projection. It
also has great overtones which immediately pop out when you want them
to. For me, the character of the Link is reminiscent of the classic Joe
Henderson era." - Paul email@example.com
Otto Link started as a repair technician in the William S. Haynes flute
company in Boston, Massachusetts, in the 1920s. In the early 1930s he
moved to 117 West 48th street in New York City to start his own
mouthpiece business. During the 1950s he briefly moved to Freeport on
Long Island, NY, before moving his business to Pompano Beach, Florida in
the late 1950s. He later sold the company to Ben Harrod who continued to
produce and hand finish mouthpieces under the Otto Link name during the
1960s/70s. Today, Otto Link mouthpieces are produced and distributed by
the J.J. Babbitt company in Elkhart, Indiana.
