    Hi there Morgan,

    I purchased a Link you have worked on a couple years back. Got it in woodwind exchange in Bradford. At the time i just went there for the day, played a bunch and ended up with this. Just wondering if you have any information on what exactly it is.

    The identifying engraving reads -- MF 99 on one side and -- either LL0509 or 220509 depending on what the first two charachters are
    It has otto link engraved on the spine and super tone master 6* on the bottom.

    Any info welcome.

    Hello Morgan, I notice you live in Leeds, near me (Elland)?: I have a question regarding very early saxophone mouthpieces. I collect early saxophones (intending to have them restored and play on - for fun! ;-) ) and recently got hold of a French soprano (c 1870) which is an exact copy of the earliest Adolphe Sax soprano's from the 1840's and 50's (identical keywork), but inevitably it hasn't retained it's original mouthpiece. Now I have some, very limited, experience with early sax 'pieces, but I'm struggling to find one that it is totally happy with - it is quirky anyway (as you might expect) and this problem is making it even harder to play, especially at the extreames of the range. I've tried a modern SA80, and also a turn of the century HR piece that came with an old (c1890-1900) J. Gras soprano...but neither are really 'right' for it...any ideas? Thanks, Matthew.
