“The DV Tenor 8* is the most versatile and rich-sounding mouthpiece I have ever played. It allows me to have a bright and projecting sound that also incorporates darker elements when I need it to. An incredible mouthpiece for all the various settings I play. I highly recommend this mouthpiece to anyone who likes a bright, big and rich sound!”
“I am now playing the JodyJazz DV 9 Baritone mouthpiece exclusively on tenor. It has all the projection I need plus fullness of sound. I played my previous mouthpiece for 30 years! Thank you JodyJazz.”
I play the JodyJazz HR* 8 baritone mouthpiece. From the very first moment I played this mouthpiece I was deeply impressed with the flexible sound. The range really reaches from very powerful to very smooth in all registers. It’s easy to play in all styles and I use it for both big band and small groups. It is a reliable partner to express my music.
“JodyJazz mouthpieces have both power and delicacy all saxophonists long for.”
“Every so often I have gotten the itch to try a new/different mouthpiece. This usually happens when I find myself in my favorite music shop with a little too much time on my hands. Normally I try a few mouthpieces, shrug my shoulders and think “Nothing here really speaks to me, my piece plays just fine.” That was the story until Jody’s HR tenor mouthpiece appeared in the selection. This mouthpiece spoke to me loud, fat and clear. Not long after buying the tenor piece I replaced my alto refaced link with the JodyJazz HR* Alto and the The DV is the most expressive baritone mouthpiece I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Jody’s mouthpieces are stable, in tune, allow a huge dynamic range and give me the freedom to be very expressive with my sound. Now the only reason to go to the shop is to get the horn tweaked and chat a bit.”
“Jody, as you can recall you sent me the Ruby Red JodyJazz Clarinet mouthpiece #8 with the spoiler. After playing around with that one, I then went with a Ruby Red #9 with the spoiler. All I can say is this is a great mouthpiece. You’ve known me for some time and know that I have been heavily influenced by the old New Orleans Albert system clarinet players (Dodds, Bechet, Bigard, etc) so I prefer the more open tip. I’ve never played a mouthpiece with a very open tip which was consistently easy to play throughout the whole range of the horn: from low E to double high E!!! I can push the mouthpiece enough to play forcefully, and it subtones nice in the low register quite well. Thanks Jody, and keep up the great work!”
“I’ve had my JodyJazz DV for years now and I wouldn’t change a thing. It has an incredibly focused sound, consistency of tone throughout all registers, and is extremely versatile. Switching from a contemporary, aggressive rock sound to an easy-going jazz sound is no problem. Beautiful depth, vibration, and ease of blowing. Also happens to be a stellar piece of engineering.”
