This is an old hard rubber Otto Link alto saxophone mouthpiece that was refaced by Freddie Gregory. When ever I see Freddie Gregory’s name on a mouthpiece, I have to take a look. I have played so many great mouthpieces and I know his incredible work firsthand. I just bought this alto saxophone mouthpiece and am still getting used to it. It’s a bit darker than I’m used to but plays great. I’m playing a Reference 54 alto saxophone. I use to play alto as my main saxophone back in college but now I play mostly the tenor saxophone and use the alto saxophone primarily for teaching.
