Otto Link ToneMaster
Tenor Sax Mouthpiece

Original 9* Facing - I measure it to be 0.100" tip opening

VERY RARE TIP OPENING SIZE!!!
YOUíLL PROBABLY NEVER SEE ANOTHER ONE LIKE IT!

Sold - June 2010

Marked 9* on the table.

On the shank, it is marked:
"Otto Link Co.
New York, NY"

Marked on the side of the mouthpiece:
"SERIAL NO. P-11"

This is the "Tone Master", which preceded the "Super Tone Master".
It was made in the 1940's or 1950's.
While it is rare to find a 7 or 8 facing...an original 9* facing like this is unheard of.
The Gold-Plate over Silver-Plate finish on this "Bell-Metal" brass mouthpiece is in great condition.

**Darker-playing "Tone Master"--1.75 on the brightness scale
          [Brightness scale 1-5 (1=dark, 5=brilliant)]
**If youíre looking for that vintage '40s sound, this has it.
**NO need to open it up since the tip reads .100!!
**Great Detail to tip/baffle--original handcrafted facing
**Bite plate has minimal wear
**Comes with vintage, fat knob ligature
