Re: New to metal mouthpieces
You might try a softer reed too. Depending on what reed you are using, the Otto Link 7 is a pretty open piece. Try a #2 reed and see how it works for you, and like Saxman said, just practice until you are comfortable with it. It might take a few weeks to get used to the Otto Link, but they are a great mouthpiece for tenor. I use a Link also.
