I`ve been deciding between two mouthpieces for a while now and I`m keeping the Link STM , the PPT is a fantastic piece with such a gentle lay that 8* isn`t scary to play at all but I play a Yamaha 62, a horn noted for its brightness to begin with and I`m finding the combo for my music a bit too bright and find the softer delivery of the STM more suited . The PPT has far more power, it really can rattle windows but I`m personally preferring the darker piece on this already bright sax ..

I bought this direct from Pete in February I think , it had Cosmetic Flaws (shown as white bits in the photos below, see one inside the chamber and one on the beak near the tip) which Pete assured me don`t make any difference to the playing and he`s rigtht, they don`t .. I`ll be supplying it in the original tube and with the old Vandoren metal lig which JamesMac gave me as these Onyxite pieces are a pig to find a metal lig for which fits and this one fits just fine

Condition is as it came from Pete bar some ligature rash .. Asking £125 - 5% goes to the Forum . will accept Paypal at your expense or bank transfer - postage at cost of course .

Yeah I was thinking that - it`s an awesomely powerful piece , way more guts than the Link STM which is replacing it and everything else I`ve tried -- also due to the gentle lay and 8* Tip, with a soft reed (I`d recommend Rico Jazz Select filed 2M or 2S) loads of easy control too , it`ll be lovely on a Taiwanese tenor (which tend to be more selmer like) like the Cannonball .

As Trimmy's not replying Ad's I can confirm that the Hanson is SA80 based and my PPT (9*) with it is wonderful.
I've cured my mouthpiece gas now.

May I ask what reeds you're using? I started another thread on this, perhaps you'd be kind enough to answer this there.
