Vintage Otto Link Florida Tone Edge “Slant Signature” Tenor “No USA” Model 1955-65 (Ref 207)****SOLD****

Vintage Otto Link Florida Tone Edge “Slant Signature” Tenor “No USA” Model 1955-65 (Ref 207)****SOLD****

Selling on behalf of the Estate of the late great jazz player and teacher, George Galway R.I.P., who carefully selected this mouthpiece for his personal collection many years ago. 

Here is a great opportunity to take ownership of this really sought after Slant Sig Link tenor mouthpiece, tip opening size 6.

Good useable condition but faded with some teeth marks on beak, tips and rails are good; no damage.
Tip Opening: (1/100mm = 229), 0.090″ or 90, Chamber = Large round.

The second version of ‘SLANT SIGNATURE’ mouthpiece had a squarer shank, and had the tip size on the side of the mouthpiece. These were made standard up to a 9 and had a lot more baffle material in them. The No USA version had a roll-over baffle similar to its metal brother, however, perhaps even higher, and are considered the most desirable of the slant links along with the later USA ‘Slant Signature’ version.

Includes: mouthpiece, no ligature or cap.

 

Description

This mouthpiece is part of the Estate of George Galway who passed away aged 79 in October 2020.

He began playing the saxophone professionally while still in his teens, as part of many dance showbands in late-1950s Belfast. 

He moved to Manchester in the 1970s and began a successful career as a music teacher, but still gigged constantly all around the country. 

George didn’t slow down in any way until about 2015, and having lived the world of jazz for nearly seven decades, he had built up an immense repertoire and wealth of knowledge about the saxophone instrument, with its many brands, series, metals, construction and playing techniques, mouthpieces and so on.
He carefully selected each piece over the years – both for their monetary investment value, as well as the personal joy he got from using them on one of his many saxes.
