**Update: Due to strong demand, I’m about a week behind on hand facing these mouthpieces for sale. However, regardless of which shipping option you pick, I’ll upgrade you to express 2 day shipping – or FedEx International Priority shipping if you’re overseas. So even though it’ll take me a week to make your mouthpiece, you’ll still receive it surprisingly quickly, especially internationally.

GS SLANT is an extremely precise copy of my BEST vintage Otto Link Slant Tenor mouthpiece. More precisely, it’s a copy of an original facing 7* Florida Slant Signature Otto Link Tone Edge tenor mouthpiece in perfect original condition.

This is the version of the ‘Slant’ that nearly everybody wants. It’s the most iconic and desirable hard rubber tenor mouthpiece ever made. When I hear people describing their ideal tenor tone online, it’s most frequently a description of what a good vintage Otto Link Slant sounds like: Dark and powerful, with a good amount of focus and projection. Brightens up and projects when pushed, but never thins out. Super even across all registers. Tunes great on almost any saxophone vintage or modern. That’s what the GS SLANT gives you, for only 15% the cost of an original vintage Otto Link Slant Tone Edge tenor saxophone mouthpiece.

Compared to the GS RESO, the GS SLANT is a little brighter and punchier (but not bright), and more focused (though still warm and full). It has an instantly recognizable 50’s-60’s jazz tenor tone. We’ll post hi-fi sound samples of the GS SLANT on a variety of brands of saxophone very soon! See below for the GS SLANT vs Vintage Slant A/B video.

If you’re a pro looking for the best do-it-all jazz tenor mouthpiece for an affordable price, I think you’d be hard pressed to beat the GS SLANT. It really captures the magic of the original mouthpiece, and that is saying a lot. It’s the only Slant copy I’ve seen that exactly copies a vintage Slant. Even upgrading to a vintage Link Slant at 8x the price wouldn’t actually sound better! And if you’re an amateur or younger player looking for your first good mouthpiece, this gives you the chance to jump right to an excellent mouthpiece that is completely hand faced, without messing with a bunch of machine faced intermediate mouthpieces.

  1. Christopher Blanchard

    I’ve been playing mine for a month. this is a fantastic piece! Playing it on a 158,xxx Mark Vi, sounds amazing, extremely well in tune and easy to change sound to copy many jazz greats. Extremely even up and down the horn, tone never thins out and altissimo is easily focused on pitch. Best playing piece at this price point I have even had.

  2. Jason Kush

    I was very excited about this mouthpiece and my first playing did not disappoint. I got the 9* and used a Roberto’s 3M reed. It played immediately. Even without knowing the mouthpiece, I could play at all volumes and way up into the altissimo. I could definitely get the edge that I needed from it. I’m certain that a good player could get a whole variety of tone colors out of this piece. Congrats to Brian on this product! I’m certainly recommending these to friends and students.

    This mouthpiece is excellent!! It’s not only good for the money, which is already a great advantage. I have several mouthpieces at home and I just wanted to add it to my arsenal since I am not planning to spend 1000 + on a vintage piece, and I only own modern Link- inspired pieces(excellent ones). After trying this GS Slant I realized the 3D technology can be great as well as long as the human touch is still there and the material doesn’t look cheap. This piece is like a high resolution “sculpture” of a specific vintage slant link. There is no way the human eye can be as precise. If it helps someone IMHO I would say: If you want a vintage inspired piece (not a straight copy) there are many greats on the market from Phil Tone, Marantz, Drake, Navarro…. you name it. If you want a straight copy (with the good and the bad) these guys at GS are the way to go. Honestly there’s no need to buy a low resolution 3D printed mouthpiece that looks like it was made by Lego or fisher-price . Unless you want something that doesn’t exist on the market. Congrats Guys at GS, you are doing a great job . Even the way you sell them is a serious one. You make them , you demo them yourselves against the original.. For me it doesn’t get more honest than that.. Again Well done!!!

    GS Slant 6 compared to Yanagisawa hard rubber 6 on Yanagisawa T902 bronze tenor sax
    The GS Slant 6 is more open in sound with clearer harmonics across the range. The Yani 6 is quite muffled and mellow by comparison. I have always found tuning variable with the Yani 6, especially the lowest notes being sharp and flatness around the top end of the instrument in lower register. With the GS, the tuning is very good across the range. The T902 is also a lot easier to play overall with the GS. When jamming along with Coltrane’s Naima, the instrument sounds so much closer in tone to Coltrane’s, something I could not achieve with the Yani mouthpiece.
    GS Slant 6, do I recommend it? Absolutely, what a pleasure to play. Thanks Brian.

    I was intrigued by the claims made about this mouthpiece. I was playing a Vandoren blue Java jumbo T55 prior to giving the GS Don’t a go. (I also have an ottolink STM USA but have preferred the T55. The GS slant is easy blowing and has a nice tone and a big sound when needed. I play quintet, small groups, full band and marching band and play on the GS for all. I’ll be selling the T55 should a buyer come up as the GS slant is better IMO – don’t think I’ll be changing mouthpieces any more.
