Otto Link "Vintage"
STM Metal Tenor Sax Mouthpiece

7* (105" - according to Babbit)
Serial Number - "1234" (how cool is that?)

I sold the s/n 1234 - July 23, 2009 - but...

Aug. 3rd, 2009 - I have another one in now, 7*, serial number 1216.
You'd think the numbers would be going up, not down.

The Manufacturers verbiage:

In commemoration and celebration of our 90th anniversary, jj Babbitt Company has introduced the new Otto Link Vintage mouthpiece for tenor sax. Several years in the making, the Otto Link Vintage mouthpiece recaptures 'the sound' of early Otto Links. A combination of changes both inside and out; body shape, bore, chamber, baffle, side rails and tuning, recaptures the Otto Link sound of yesteryear, setting it apart from the current Otto Link. Although today’s Otto Link is loved by thousands of players around the world, you may be longing to recapture the old Link sound. Otto Link Vintage may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Otto Link Vintage is available in the same standard tip openings as current Otto Link models. Choose a metal mouthpiece with 24-karat gold plating.... Each mouthpiece is individually serial numbered and comes with a ligature and cap.

We listened when you asked for 'the sound' and playability of the early Otto Links. Get it with our new Vintage tenor mouthpieces. Available from your local music dealer.

Here's what SaxQuest says.

And here's JunkDude.

The mouthpiece pictured below is s/n 1234.
I sold that and I now have in s/n 1216.
Happy to supply new photos if needed/desired.

Link "Vintage" Tenor 7*
