I received the “Missing Link” soprano mouthpiece a few days ago and I would like to say “THANK YOU” for your great work! I played it these days, the tone is great, I love it.
Have finally had a chance to play quite a bit on the OS2 on both my sopranos. My conclusions are that your description of the piece is bang on the money. I really cannot see myself playing the ML after … Read More
It’s a wonderful piece, very even over the entire horn, high notes speak easily and without any difference in either effort or tonal quality from the rest of the horn, nice big fat bottom end. The tip opening is … Read More

Just received your impressive mouthpiece! I love the way it’s free blowing because you can focus on music and not especially on the mouthpiece. I also like the Marca Supérieure very much and will buy some (2.5) in the next … Read More
