I just received the mouthpiece and it plays beautifully, extremely sensitive dynamic control, dark harmonic center with precise intonation. I’ve been playing for a few hours now and I would add that it really makes the palm keys sing! In … Read More
Although a little late, I would like to thank you very much in this way. The mouthpiece is wonderful and it was a godsend. It behaves exactly as you described it. The tonal freedom that I have somehow lacked is … Read More
There are a handful of common problems for soprano players that show up all the time in my correspondence. If you’ve been playing soprano for a while, these issues may be familiar to you, but if you are relatively new … Read More
Thank you so very much Sir! You have positively influenced my actual real life to a degree that you cannot possibly imagine. I am so happy that I spent the time to research the possibilities of getting a custom Soprano … Read More
The adjustments you made are perfect . I am now able to pop out all the top end notes without shutting down. It’s great. Thanks for knowing what questions to ask and what adjustments to make. I am very pleased with … Read More
Wonderful! Palm keys and everywhere else on the sax is in tune, and I can articulate the palm keys now. I even managed an altissimo G. Love the nice warm open tone I’m when I want that voicing, and I … Read More
Wow!!! I got the mouthpiece first thing this morning – what a revelation!! It’s fantastic – everything you said it would be, and probably more. Many thanks, Joe.
WOW! Low notes sound and high notes in tune. Low C, Middle C, and High C spot right on according to my tuner! Nice, warm sound. With its Missing Link mouthpiece, my Yamaha is like a whole new horn. Also, … Read More

Got the piece in the mail yesterday. Played on it for 20 minutes then decided to use it on the gig last night . My first reaction was ‘wow’. I seem to find myself taking in less of the mouthpiece … Read More
Wow..Just wow. At first, I thought the 6 was actually a little closed (only because I typically play a 7 or 7* on tenor, my main horn), and for the first time ever, I felt comfortable on soprano. But I’ve … Read More
Received the mouthpiece (Wolfe Tayne) today and just spent a couple of hours with it. The only reason I stopped playing is because my chops were giving out. It’s a mysterious thing – it feels and sounds like it always … Read More
Wonderful piece, deep, full, but still resonate. Love the Marcas. Got to spend a good 3—4 hours on it yesterday, and I began to lock into it. Nice!!
I’m following up to let you know that I have received the mouthpiece, and am loving it so far! It really feels like I’m playing on a whole new horn. I wanted to thank you for being so accommodating.
I played your mouthpiece quite a bit today and have to admit: it’s really great. I can feel now what you say about one voice through the whole range, easyness of playing and intonation. Everything is great to me now. … Read More
I received today the Open Sky 2. First of all thank you for the super fast delivery across the ocean! So I had my first trial with it on my Yamaha 675 (straight neck, Marca Superieure 2 &1/2 reeds and … Read More
The moment I heard about you I knew I’ll learn a thing or two when we got in touch! The “less mouthpiece” is a revelation and combined with a bit firmer reed (I play Rigotti #2,5 strong, but today tried … Read More
My mouthpiece arrived on Saturday. It really is a lovely piece. I managed to get right up to F3. The tone is so much better. It sounds fuller. It is easier to blow than my other mouthpiece. Thank you so much … Read More
