Victor Mirallas on the JodyJazz HR*
I just bought a JodyJazz HR* Tenor 7* mouthpiece from the Sax On boutique from Barcelona. I’ve only had time to shed for three hours, but it’s enough to realize I discovered a new sound with my tenor. The range between pianissimo and my comfort zone is super obvious; I can play softer than ever and enjoy the difference of dynamics with a comfortable feeling. I’ll keep playing products from JodyJazz, because it makes a difference.
