    Re: Metal Tenor Dukoff D6

    I got a dukoff d7 plugged into a selmer mk vi and a ref. 54. I like my sound very much. HOWEVER the selmers i got are dark... the dukoff is bright...so they fit well because the sound is somewhere in the middle. with an SA80 II, however, it may be too bright. I never had problems with quality from dukoff... some say there are, and there very well could be. for an SA80, why not try a Berg or Yani without the baffle... Bergs sold here are cheaper than www.wwbw.com hope this helps

      Thank you for your reply. I tried a NY Otto Link, and did not like it at all. Perhaps it was just that one, but I sold it. I use a Brilhart Level Aire 5, and like its sound. Bright, but with quality. What do the Metal Bergs sound like?

        The Berg Larsen is 90/0. I know the 0 is bright, but does the smaller opening make up a little for that, or would you suggest I do not get into a "0". But stay in the 2-3 range??

          Well, 0 or 1 may be very bright... but then again 3 is another extreme... it's all on your opinion. To be honest with you I'd try the 2. I also would go or a bigger opening, but countless greats have used from sizes from 4 to 9 so it doesn't really matter. I don't know how to explain what Bergs sound like because they come in a big variety. You watch Saturday Night Live? The sax player uses one. If you're happy with your Brilhart, stay with it. Try other things just to be sure.

          also, I have heard a lot of people say good stuff about Otto Links and I've heard people say they're inconsistant. If that Otto Link you bought didn't impress you I'd keep on trying them out because I'm sure they sound good. Maybe I can help you...what's your price range?
