  • GS RESO Tenor Mouthpiece Freddie Gregory 7* Facing

    $ 199

    I’m very excited to present GetASax.com’s very own mouthpiece project: GS Mouthpieces (main page) 

    The big idea here is to let you experience the magic of the best mouthpieces I have ever played, for a price that makes them widely accessible for the first time.

    This mouthpiece is a very precise copy of my personal Otto Link Reso Chamber tenor mouthpiece, which was faced by the great Freddie Gregory to a perfect 7*. It’s medium dark, but not too dark, with moderate focus, and gets punchy without thinning out when pushed. Balanced and responsive, it’s one of the best all-around tenor mouthpieces I’ve played. Even if you normally play brighter pieces, the GS Reso is worth having in your arsenal,. It’s ideal for jazz, beautiful on ballads, and can handle burning bebop tenor lines like a champ. The facing is just right. Subtone is effortless, response is quick. Altissimo pops right out. It’s very free blowing and takes air extremely comfortably. The 7* .105″ tip opening is very comfortable. Newer players can easily manage it with a 2.5 reed. And for pros, it slots right in with a Rigotti 3 light to 3.5 medium. (I like the Rigotti 3 light personally.)

    The computer model we developed for the Reso is accurate down to .001” compared to my original Reso Chamber. Each mouthpiece gets carefully hand faced, precisely measured, and tested, so that it really is totally right! Bottom line: You get the equivalent of a $1500+ vintage mouthpiece for only $199. People keep saying we should charge more, but the whole idea from the start has been to make the best mouthpieces widely accessible, not to maximize profits. A lot of people have never played a really good mouthpiece. It’s time to change that. 

    Using cutting-edge tech, we went through over 50 prototypes so that now every one of these sounds like the original.

    Material:

    GS Mouthpieces are made of a premium biocompatible dental resin, and printed at an especially high resolution. You don’t see messy print lines everywhere, because the print is so high quality! This dental resin is designed to be in your mouth, so it’s ideal for a mouthpiece.

    The density and the hardness are almost identical to vintage hard rubber! So GS Mouthpieces vibrate like hard rubber and feel familiar and comfortable to play. The resin is also extremely durable. I have dropped the prototypes on hardwood again and again, and they just bounce and are fine. They even survive being dropped onto concrete (for a while)! So if you’re hard on equipment, this mouthpiece should be able to take quite a beating and hold up well over time.

    Finishing:

    Each GS Reso gets carefully hand faced and finished before coming to you. This is super important. The magic of a mouthpiece is in the facing. If you buy a generic, mass-produced mouthpiece, chances are the table is not flat and the facing is uneven between the side rails. As a result, the reed vibrates unevenly. It feels stuffy and dead, resistant, and all-around disappointing to play. SO many people have this problem, whether they know it or not. I don’t know how many players I’ve helped to get their first actually good mouthpiece, and all of a sudden playing is fun!

    Since we flatten the table, you get an easy reed seal. There are no print lines or marks messing up the facing. It’s smooth and perfect like a boutique mouthpiece. The facing is also finished by hand, which is a BIG plus. I’m really picky about this, so I learned to do it myself so I could be sure these pieces were actually the same as my Freddy Gregory-faced Reso Chamber. Each facing is measured at ten points to make sure that it is even and consistent throughout. 

    Mouthpiece facings are unforgiving. Small problems can make a big difference in playability. Unlike any other mouthpiece of its kind or anywhere near its price, each one of these GS mouthpieces goes out the door only when it is faced just right. Every one is as good as the best mouthpieces I have played.

    I have been collecting mouthpieces seriously for over ten years now, and I have been saving the very best ones over that time. I currently have about 750 pieces, and of those there are about 20 that I think are in that Holy Grail category. Those are the mouthpieces that will be coming out in the GS Mouthpieces line. Keep an eye on this, if you want to put together a collection of the best playing saxophone mouthpieces ever, while keeping costs to a minimum. Each one has a magic of its own, and each one gives you a unique and beautiful tone and response that makes it a joy to play!

    This is a Otto Link 4 Star mouthpiece for tenor saxophone. It has a .097 tip opening, a slight rollover baffle, curved side walls, and a large round chamber. It has been refaced, but it’s hard to read the refacer’s signature. It plays well and measures well, so the job was done right.

  • Otto Link Tone Edge Florida Straight Sig 8* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC428

    $ 325

    This is a great Otto Link Florida Tone Edge alto saxophone mouthpiece. This is the same as the USA Slant Signature Florida Otto Link, but with the signature changed to straight across. This was made in FL before the Early Babbitt pieces and has a little more warmth to the sound than the true EB pieces do. It was refaced at some point from an original 5* to an 8* tip, or 0.091″. The tip and rails are in excellent condition. From the markings on the rails and very thin tip rail, it appears most of the work was done near the tip, making for a great projection and a little more edge than stock Link. This works great for lead alto or for cutting through a band, but retains much more warmth than you would get with most other larger tip, projecting alto mouthpieces.

    Otto Link Tone Edge Slant 5 Original Baritone Mouthpiece MPC359

  • Otto Link Tone Edge Small USA Large Font 7 EB? Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC525

    $ 600

    This is a beautiful example of an Otto Link Tone Edge soprano mouthpiece. It has its original 7 facing measuring .062″ or so. The 7 stamp is the larger font, and the USA stamp is small font like a FL Tone Edge. The Otto Link logo and chains are not the modern version, and neither is the shank design, and the machine marks on the table are a fine vertical denim pattern. The chamber is large and round. It plays beautifully with a warm, rich tone. I guess this would be an Early Babbitt at least early 80’s. I have to admit, I’m not an expert on the differences between soprano stamping in the 70’s to early 80’s on these. But it looks better than smaller tip ones I see selling online for $800, so hopefully this is a good deal for somebody. It also includes the Vandoren Optimum ligature in the photos.

  • Otto Link Tone Master 4* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC469

    $ 300

    Light reface to a 0.062″ tip opening. Mild rollover baffle, large chamber, curved sidewalls. It has a much darker tone than you might normally think of with metal. Very playable. If you want a rich, medium-dark alto tone, and want a mouthpiece that looks cool, and is more durable than hard rubber, this would be a good option. It brightens up when pushed, but is not a bright mouthpiece overall.

  • Ted Klum Acoustimax Alto Mouthpiece – (much) Better than a Meyer

    $ 265

    This is a mouthpiece that for the price is very hard to beat. It plays like a vintage Meyer Bros with a lot of punch, and is great for jazz, lead alto, or other sorts of playing where you want a warm, full tone that has a reasonable amount of projection. The quality control on these is very good – worlds better than your modern Meyer made by Babbitt. You can just buy one of these and it will play great, as opposed to buying ten modern Meyers and maybe finding one good one.

  • Ted Klum Tonamax Tenor Mouthpiece Like Florida Otto Link Tone Edge Slant

    $ 600

    Ted Klum’s Tonamax is as close as you can get to a vintage Florida Otto Link “Slant” Tone Edge. It plays big, full, medium-dark with a punchy edge, just like a good Link slant. I think it’s a bit more like the earlier ‘No USA’ slant than like the later brighter USA version. Ted’s new ‘Florida Model’ is more like the later Florida Tone Edge or ‘Early Babbitt’ tenor pieces. This Tonamax is like the earlier Slant. I can get you one in any tip opening, in black ebonite, or sometimes in beautiful marbled ebonite.

  • echobrass echomaster tenor metal mouthpiece ligature

    Tenor Metal Otto Link Brilhart Reproduction 3 Band Ligature Berg Larsen Dukoff!

    $ 165

    Best ligature around for a metal Otto Link (and similar) tenor mouthpiece! Way better than the stock Otto Link metal top screw ligature, this gives you a much firmer hold on the reed, which greatly improves response and reduces movement or reed swelling on the mouthpiece table. The plastic reed plate fits the reed beautifully and opens up plenty of vibration. No deadening fabrics or strings here. Plus, this is made to the highest standards in South Korea by people who care about quality saxophone equipment. It’s a true reproduction down to the materials used, of the most desirable saxophone ligature ever made. This also fits larger body Berg Larsen and vintage Hollywood Dukoff tenor mouthpieces, and all Otto Link Metal-sized tenor mouthpieces, like Ted Klum Focustone Tonamax, Theo Wanne larger body metal, and many others. See the photos. For thin body metal mouthpieces, get the Guardala sized tenor ligature instead.

    If you want the best ligature for a Berg Larsen metal tenor mouthpiece, this is it. If you want the best ligature for a Dukoff Hollywood or Dukoff Stubby tenor piece, again, this is it.

    This ligature fits all metal Otto Link tenor mouthpieces also – past and present. It fits Masterlink, 4****, ToneMaster, Super ToneMaster NY, FL, Early Babbitt, and regular Babbitt-made pieces. The modern variants like the ‘New Vintage’ NY, Millennium edition etc also all fit.

    Buy with confidence. I take returns, and I stand behind this product. It’s the real deal.
