Otto Link Hard Rubber Mouthpiece

I'm looking for a sort of dark husky jazz sound, and I wanted to know if an Otto Link rubber mouthpiece would do the trick. Also, what facing would you recomend for that dark sound I'm loking for. (I play a tenor)

      Vandoren: I play a metal Otto Link STM 7, and it gives me exactly that husky dark tone you're talking about. I also sometimes use a hard rubber Berg Larsen 105/2, which is brighter, and has more power (I think the 105 is slightly wider than the Link 7), but it's a bit harder for me to control. I love the dark tone of the Link, so that's the one usually on my 10M.

    The best dark husky sounds I've heard on YouTube are: Joel Frahm www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfHcSTA5Nx8 Davesax on YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=RczWDmf9res and they are both Selmer Short Shank mouthpieces. Amazing. I think both horns are Selmer Mk VI, not sure.

        man lighten up. this is a sax forum not a flute forum. anyway I quite enjoy youtube links (though I think the mpc in the first vid sounds more like a Link than a Selmer).
