Well, I’ve had the Missing Link for about 48 hours now and I’ve played it a lot. I’ve put it through its paces. And I want you to know: I’ve tried, and I’ve tried, and I’ve tried, but I just can’t … find anything wrong with it!!! This mouthpiece is incredible. Makes my Mark VI sing. Beautiful, warm, rich sound, with versatility up and down the instrument. No distortion if I push things in the upper register, yet I can whisper the lowest notes with my normally very loose embouchure very easily. And perfect intonation up and down the instrument. The mouthpiece is a winner. THANK YOU for your advice and for a great addition to my lineup.
