This classic mouthpiece was played by Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, Johnny Griffin, Dexter Gordon, Michael Brecker, and many other tenor legends. The 1950s New York Double Band Super Tone Master Otto Link is a very rare mouthpiece because of its short production run.The Double Ring vintage Otto Link has the superior tonal characteristics compared to other vintages piece from the maker.
The Super D is a brilliant, full bodied mouthpiece that packs a punch. The mouthpiece projects greatly in the altissimo register while being able to play the softest sub-tones with ease and preform fast articulations at any dynamic. This mouthpiece lends itself to play any stylistic approach due to its flexibility. Every aspect of Retro Revival's Super D tenor mouthpiece has been meticulously replicated from a perfectly mint darker New York original Double Ring Otto Link. The New York Super D is gold plated with a low baffle, very balanced, and centered with plenty of projection. The tonal characteristics, response, and overall great quality of the Super D will impress any player.
Using advanced CAD technology, Retro Revival was able to duplicate the Otto Link New York Double Ring. With great precision, replication process starts with hand drawings - precisely measuring every parameter - translating these numbers into computer code to produce 3D images. Then a CNC machine mills the exact measurements from one piece of the highest quality bar brass. Master mouthpiece craftsman Eric Falcon then hand faces, assembles the bite plates, and play tests every single mouthpiece before polishing.Every Retro Revival mouthpiece includes a New Rico H Ligature and Rico Mouthpiece Cap.
