François D'Amours on the JodyJazz Sax Mouthpieces
“Mr Espina, Here’s my little mouthpiece story… I’m a well known sax player here in Montreal Canada. The first time I heard of your pieces, I went to the store and tried a bunch of them. Mostly DV’s and HR for soprano alto and tenor. I was liking the playability and the comfort of the DV tenor but found it was a little too bright for my taste. So when the DV NY came out, i ordered one! An 8*. And boom!! I fell in love with the mouthpiece! What can I say. It’s got everything I want form a mouthpiece. The sound of course, but also the comfort, the intonation, the projection, etc.. So what I want to say is congratulations for the great mouthpiece!”
