“This JodyJazz metal alto is beautifully made, plays in tune and gives me the bark and bite I need for louder playing situations. Records great too.”

“The tone through each one of my saxophones starts by entering one of Jody’s fabulous mouthpieces. With a variety of styles, and materials, I’m confident that there is a mouthpiece in his catalogue to be paired with any saxophonist’s horn. All of my JodyJazz mouthpieces are free blowing, and beautifully hand crafted. My main sax is the tenor. From the first time playing it, I loved the DV Tenor 7*. My sound was warmer, but could project louder AND speak softer. Articulations were easier to pronounce, and my altissimo notes grew in range and beauty. Curious, I tried the DV CHI Tenor 7*, and loved it as well. I play on this as my main piece, and it pairs nicely with my silver Selmer horn. In 2014, I played tenor and baritone sax with Canadian singing icon Gino Vannelli. This was the first time that I played the bari sax, and it wasn’t easy until I picked up a DV Baritone 8 mouthpiece. The DV made it easy to blow a beautiful tone through the sax, while I only needed to focus on the music. One of the trickier saxes; the soprano, needs a lot of focus and dedication to hone a personalized tone, with good intonation. When I switched from a reputable manufacturer, to the DV Soprano 7*, I was able to work on my sound, instead of fighting with the technical difficulties the soprano sax. This mouthpiece darkened the tones and made the instrument less ‘nasal’, and super fun to play. I seldom play the alto, but when I do, I can ease into it with a DV Alto 7 mouthpiece. Switching between the different JodyJazz mouthpieces is easy and comfortable. Thank you Mr. Espina, and your fantastic staff for your contributions to the saxophone community!”

“The incredible sound projection of my JodyJazz DVs has impressed me for years. I love the ease of tuning and super altissimo, as well as the beautiful harmonics you hear. JodyJazz mouthpieces are made from only the finest materials and the really stand up to the rigors of the road, playing night after night. I always feel my sound is always right there and effortlessly gives me the sound I need both in live shows and in recording studios. I first started playing the JodyJazz DV Tenor 7 when I was in London and because I love that so much have since also added the DV Alto 7 for my Alto.”

Rubens Mariano

“JodyJazz offers me a “free blowing” mouthpiece without resistance. They are easy to play and capture the full range of tonal qualities of the instrument. The lower range of the saxophone gets a fat, round and strong sound, while the higher registers have a warm and refined sound. The mouthpiece has a clean sound, with excellent focus and projection and the construction and finishing is of the highest quality.”

I wanted to once again express my appreciation for the new JJ DV CHI 7*. I’ve been playing a DV 7* Tenor and a DV 7 alto piece for years, and simply put, they are the best mouthpieces I’ve played in my over 30 years. I absolutely love these pieces. Seriously, I’ve owned them all and I’ve never played anything like the DV series

“Dear Jody I just received the DV7 for Alto from your B STOCK. The package was well put together and the piece looked impeccable. For the last 2 months I have been playing on the JODY JAZZ CLASSIC 6 mouthpiece. Very good but I was missing the bite and the free blowing. When I put the DV7 on my horn WOW !!!!!!! It called me out and everyone in my home. This mouthpiece is absolutely brilliant. It exceeded my expectations. I have just recently been endorsed by P Mauriat Saxophones here in Toronto Canada. I needed a piece that would make that horn GO FOR THE SOUND, and Jody the DV7 was the one. I am so impressed that I think I will order another one for my Tenor. I would be honored if I could become a Jo

“Dear Jody, I’ve been playing the JodyJazz DV #7 for last two and a half years and since than I forgot the meaning of “bad response”. The DV gives me confidence in any acoustic situation. I can play on the edge of silence and I can be as loud as I need to be with no lack of control. The JJ DV gives me a bright powerful contemporary sound, which fits perfectly with the kind of music I play. Thank You for Your Work and Passion.”
