Freddie Gregory Refaced Metal Otto Link 7 Alto Mouthpiece

I just received this in the mail today.  It is a metal Otto Link that was refaced by Freddie Gregory. Like I mentioned on some other posts, you can’t go wrong with anything Freddie Gregory worked on.  I won it on ebay and the seller said it plays great with a huge fat warm sound!  It plays great and is very easy to blow but I don’t think I would describe it as fat and warm.  It makes me lean toward a Sanborn type style.  I use to have a piece like this years ago.  I might record another clip with more of a straight ahead sound and see how it sounds on that.  I think this piece would sound killer on a pop gig with some reverb added.  It has a nice resonance to the sound. I think it’s pretty cool.

  2. That was a modern Otto Link.

  3. Avatar Pierre BILLOD says

    What was the measured opening after refacing ? (0,080″ or 0,085″)

  4. .080 I believe.

  5. Blows my mind what these great refacers do to modern junk mouthpieces.
