I got the mouthpiece on Wednesday, and have now had a chance to play it in a couple of rehearsals. My first take was . . . wow! My second take was . . . Wow! I bet you can guess my third take. 🙂 The Missing Link has a beautiful sound – full, rich and warm across the board, especially noticeable in the second octave where my other mouthpieces fell short. Do I sound like Seamus Blake? Of course not (and I never will) but with your Missing Link, I’m dramatically closer to the “sound in my head”. In addition, the Missing Link responds like an absolute dream, all the way to the bottom of the horn. I can just sit back, and let it sing. Count me as a 100% beyond-happy customer, and thank you so much for the marvelous mouthpiece!
