Otto Link Alto (1970's) Super Tone Master 5*
Here is an original , 1970s Otto Link Super Tone Master 5* alto mouthpiece. This mouthpiece measures .071” on my gauge.
“Super” Tone Masters are some of the finest pieces on alto for the traditional “bebop” alto sound. More open inside than either a Meyer Bros, or NYUSA or even a comparable vintage Tone Edge. Metal Otto Links of various generations have been used by everyone from Charlie Parker (Master Link), Sonny Stitt in the 1950’s (“double band”) and today by NYC altoist Billy Drewes.
For the player looking for a bit more of a spread in the natural voice to use more air, or looking for a good match for vintage American horns, this is a good candidate at a moderate tip opening to allow for nice focus.
