“For years I was looking for a mouthpiece that would help me to get closer to the sound of two of my favorite players of all times, Dexter Gordon and Johnny Griffin. My JodyJazz DV Chicago 8* not only does that but also allows me to use the full depth of my tone whether it’s a jazz ballad or an up-tempo tune.” “I’ve been using exclusively hard rubber mouthpieces on alto for years till I tried the JodyJazz DV Alto 7. I was really impressed as it has got all the qualities I’m looking on a mouthpiece. It combines great projection as well as the right warmth that I want my tone to have when I play jazz and on top of that just the right amount of resistance that helps with jazz phrasing.”
“JodyJazz mouthpieces give me a wide range of options and possibilities to satisfy my needs as an interpreter. It is amazing how I can change the tone at the moment of interpreting different music styles by providing a stable sound in all the sound register. Another point in favor is the comfort when playing as I don’t find any significant resistance; JodyJazz mouthpieces are very free-blowing so I can play and practice for hours and hours without issues. Indeed, it was a blessing getting to know JodyJazz mouthpieces, it was love at first sight!”. Quote in Spanish “Las boquillas JodyJazz me brindan una gama de opciones y posibilidades para satisfacer mis necesidades como interprete. Es impresionante como puedo cambiar de timbre para interpretar diferentes estilos brindando un sonido estable en todo el registro. Otro punto a favor es la comodidad que tengo al tocar ya que no me opone resistencia, así puedo tocar horas y horas sin desgastarme.” Es una bendición haber conocido las boquillas JodyJazz, fue amor a primera vista!”.
“Just a quick note with a sort of testimonial… along with andy narrell, i was a co-guest soloist with the steel band at miami university in oxford, ohio friday night.
“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.”
