The quality Otto Link sound is popular on Alto and Tenor Saxophone. Produced from a dense ebonite it offers a classic bebop tone. The internal design features a ballooned out large tone chamber. This helps produce a rich dark sound. This mouthpiece in a favourite amongst the jazz fraternity.
In our opinion the hard rubber Link on Alto is great for players wanting to smooth out and darken their tone. Whilst it has ample projection for most scenarios, it is not a 'lead' mouthpiece in a loud ensemble. It's much happier in small groups or soloist work where the tone quality is the core ingredient. If you're a fan of vintage jazz and rich Alto sounds then this Link would be ideal. Most Alto players choose tip openings between the 5 to 7* sizes.

love this mouthpiece and thank you for the advice you gave me before my purchase, it \"does what it says on the tin\"
An interesting design a large chamber with a rolled baffle , a different sound to the Meyer .
The Link #4 mouthpiece helps produce a full and rounded tone, somewhat on the quite side, which suits certain musical styles (1920s to 1960s Jazz for example). For something with a little more edge and contempory sound, you will also want a piece with a straight through or closed off chamber.
