Mouthpiece Cafe House Blend II Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Review

Today, I am reviewing another saxophone mouthpiece made by Brian Powell and Erik Greiffenhagen over at Mouthpiece Cafe.  If you have visited my site before you probably know that I hold Brian and Erik in pretty high regard.  They have both done tons of sax mouthpiece refacing jobs for me over the years with great results. Read More…

Modern STM Otto Link Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Refaced by Brian Powell

This is a modern Super Tone Master Otto Link tenor saxophone mouthpiece.   Everyone knows that buying a modern metal Otto Link is pretty much a roll of the dice.  I remember going to a music store and trying 10 of them and not liking any of them.  Many times over the years I have stopped Read More…

Berg Larsen 110/2 Tenor Mouthpiece

This is a Berg Larsen hard rubber tenor mouthpiece I recently won on ebay.  I saw that it was refaced by Brian Powell and I knew it had to be good.  Sure enough it plays great.  I thought it would be really bright but it has a big thick core to it that is nice. Read More…

Battle of the 3 Florida Link Tenor Mouthpieces

I thought I would put up a comparison clip of 3  metal STM Florida  Otto Link tenor mouthpieces that I have.  The first one is a Florida Link 7*(no USA) that was refaced by someone. If I had to bet money on it I would say it’s Theo Wannes work.  It looks just like other Read More…

Early Babbitt Otto Link .110 Tenor Mouthpiece

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) Read More…

SP Otto Link Tenor Mouthpiece

This is another SP otto link that Brian Powell refaced and brought the beak down on.  I love these mouthpieces.  They are not too dark, not too bright but can really blow when you lay into them.  This is a .110 and is a little darker than the .107 Otto Link I had.  I saw Read More…

Brian Powell Refaced NY Link 7*

This is a NY link that I won off ebay that was advertised as worked on by Theo Wanne.   I put my own baffle in it.  There is an earlier clip of it on here if you look with a description. I sent it off to Brian Powell and asked him to clean up Read More…

Early Babbitt HR Otto Link 7* Tenor Mouthpiece

Holy Cow!  This piece is great.  I just got four pieces back today from Brian Powell.  This is the Jon Van Wie refaced link that has a clip posted of it last year.  This piece always played nice but didn’t have any guts to it.  I really couldn’t dig in with it.  I played another Read More…

Hard Rubber Otto Link 7* Tenor Mouthpiece

This mouthpiece is the best hard rubber link I’ve ever played.  I won it off Ebay for 200.00 bucks.  That was the opening bid and no one else bid on it.  It’s a little confusing because the seller said it was a John Reilly reface but when I received the piece it had engraving on Read More…

Early Babbit Alto Mouthpiece 7

This is the Freddie Gregory refaced HR link that I recorded on another clip. It played great but to be honest…..it was way to picky with reeds.  It would take me forever to find a good reed.  I sent it to Brian and had him work on it and set the tip at .080 which Read More…

Hard Rubber Berg Larsen Alto Mouthpiece

This is a Berg Larsen hard rubber mouthpiece that I won on ebay.  It was advertised as being worked on by Freddie Gregory.  I was not happy with it when I got it at all. I would be very surprised if Freddie Gregory had worked on this. It didn’t seem to play like most of Read More…
