This is the Early Babbitt Otto Link I have posted about before. The last SP otto link I got that Brian Powell had worked on was a .110 and I loved it. I t just felt like the tip opening was where I felt the most comfortable. I sent this Early Babbitt Otto Link (.105) back to Brian and asked him to change it to a .110. I was nervous because I really liked the piece and was afraid I was opening it too much. I got it back from Brian and it plays better than before for me. The .110 opening allows me to blow as much air as I have into this piece and get crazy volume. It’s got a HUGE sound!
I’m pretty sure you can’t hear a difference between it and the other recordings of it on here but in person and playing wise it’s a huge difference. It has more volume than it did before and the recording kept clipping when I would play loud so I had to back a few feet away to record it. I’ve played this piece for a week now. This is without a doubt my main piece. Don’t worry, I’ll never stop trying other pieces! Thanks Brian. Again!!
