Martin Tenor - Committee III 1948

Looking for a good mouthpiece for the above vintage Martin tenor. Tried Meyer 5M and found it hard to play - reverted to original Martin mouthpiece. I play mostly Big Band and Dixieland pieces. Would Otto link 7 be a good option. Open to recommendations for mouthpiece and reeds.

    I have used Morgan 3 c and they sound rich and sweet. Can get the Morgan classic in more than 3C facing at Junk Dudes. I don't know the sound you are going for but a large bore like the Morgan works well on Vintage saxes and that particular mp is very flexible from classical to jazz but not for snorting ripping notes unless you get the larger opening 6c. (Never tried it though)

    The Otto Link 7 works great for me. I'd look into the NY model if I were you.
