This is a hard rubber otto link I bought on ebay. It was advertised as being worked on by John Reilly and had a 5* facing on it. It played well but was a little too closed for me. I sent it to Brian Powell and had him reface it to a .080 which is my preference on alto. It came with a box that has a Florida address on it so I assume it’s one of those straight sig mouthpieces that came from Florida after the slant signature production stopped. It plays great lots of power to it and a nice roll over baffle for some extra edge when needed. This one of the brighter HR links that I have played.
