WS ACOUSTICUT RARE HARD RUBBER 5 TENOR SAX SAXOPHONE MOUTHPIECE 5 BAND 1ST GENERATION (LIKE OTTO)
I WAS NOT REALLY FAMILIAR WITH THESE SO I DID A LOT OF RESEARCH. THIS IS THE FIRST GENERATION 5 BAND VERSION.
I GOT A LOT INFORMATION OFF

” On alto and tenor, the first is a large chamber piece, similar to an Otto Link Tone Edge. In fact, when I put the facing off of my old Tone Edge on an Acousticut, I couldn’t tell much difference when played. It is always impossible to tell if the variation in sound is some minute and invisible difference in the chamber or in the lay.
- Big round chamber.
- Large undercut on the side walls just like the Link Tone Edge.
- Sort of a “zero baffle” look on the originals, but they don’t play stuffy as would be expected.The Five Band Acousticut was one of my first experiments with putting a Link facing curve on to another old rubber piece. I can tell the Acousticut apart from my Slant Signature only if I put on my reading glasses. In the dark, they play the same. In fact, I prefer the Acousticut. The price on old Link Slant Signatures has gone crazy. Mine is now worth more than my tenor saxophone. Best to leave it at home in the safe. ”
