Brian Miller on JodyJazz Mouthpieces
“I enjoy playing JodyJazz mouthpieces because they allow me to play through the full range of the instrument without giving up my sound, projection or tone quality. It matters not whether I’m playing a lullaby to one of my daughters or trying to fill up a concert hall, this mouthpiece has me prepared for the task at hand. The low end is full and warm and the altissimo is precise and in tune; not shrill like some other pieces I’ve played in the past.”
