“I absolutely love playing on my Jody Jazz HR #8! This piece has chiaroscuro (in singing, the blending of bright and dark), so I don’t have to trade one quality for the other. It whispers, it screams, it cuts, it articulates. I find the HR to be very expressive and right there with me in every musical situation.”
“My JodyJazz DV NY Tenor 7* combines a full and elegant tone with powerful projection, which allows complete freedom of expression. It has an exceptionally free blowing response, on which I never have to strain to get the sound I want throughout the entire range of the instrument. A perfect match for my Selmer Balanced Action tenor.”
“Jody’s DV NY mouthpiece is extremely balanced, warm, and easy to play. I can create so many colors in my sound now and it allows me speak with a warm beautiful lyrical quality that I’ve been searching for. I find that the Rico Jazz Select Reeds works great with my DV NY. Jody makes a killin’ mouthpiece!! Check it out!”
” Dear Jody, Thank you very much indeed for recommending the DV NY7* for my Selmer tenor. I thought you’d like to know that it’s the most satisfying, responsive, warm and flexible mouthpiece I’ve ever played; I’ve been playing tenor for 50 years, and I’ve had Berg Larsen, OttoLink, Ponzol, Vandoren and Yanigasawa mouthpieces, but this beats them all hands down! I’ve just done a gig with it, and it gave me every note just as I asked it, with consistent tone from the top to the bottom. It really is a mouthpiece for a lifetime. (I use Marca Jazz 3 reeds). With kind regards, “
” Jody – I want to thank you… and commend you, on the creation of the DVNY mouthpiece. I have just recently purchased my DVNY 7 and already love the tone and control it provides. I had played a Berg Larsen metal 100/2/M for over 40 years on my Mark VI, and your DVNY is the first mouthpiece that has warranted me buying it. Guess that sums it up! A H (Harry) Saunders “
I’ve played on tons of tenor mouthpieces over the years and I was never happy with any of them (too bright, too dead, too hot, etc.) but I’ve really found my tenor voice through your mouthpiece. Thanks for taking so much pride in your products! Feel free to quote this email if you think it could help you.
“Before trying my DV NY Tenor 7* Mouthpiece, I had played on the same mouthpiece for over 20 years. Once I tried it, I was blown away and had to make the switch. It projects very clearly while maintaining the warm, full and dark sound that I love. The ease in which I can play in all registers of my horn is liberating, and the intonation is remarkable. Thanks Jody! You do amazing work!!!”
“The JodyJazz DV NY Tenor mouth piece gives me the quality of sound that I’ve been looking for in projection, intonation and timber. It has an amazing tone and blows freely with zero resistance.”
