“Vintage mouthpieces have their mystique, but they’re a big gamble especially for the price. And in fact is it’s very difficult to find a good one, and that’s just frustrating. JodyJazz mouthpieces are simply the best saxophone mouthpieces in the world. Everyone one you play blows flawlessly. Whatever sound you have in your mind can come through. Although the Giant is my go to, I really dig them all. And they definitely will give you that fun, inspiring, musical, and spiritual trip. Naturally this makes complete sense, because Jody himself represents what that’s all about!”

“After playing the JodyJazz HR* Tenor 10* for a couple of years I tried out the new JodyJazz GIANT 10* Garzone Signature model and it was incredible. I never found a more beautiful sounding mouthpiece: It has got such a unique tone, and it’s rich, powerful and warm sound makes it to the greatest mouthpiece I’ve ever played.”



Rodrigo Bento

“Thank you Jody, for the great mouthpieces.” “I can play this mouthpiece for Jazz and pop equally as well. “

Ryan Burrage on the JodyJazz HR* Clarinet: “I play the JodyJazz HR* 9 Clarinet mouthpiece on all of my gigs. My style, partially rooted in the New Orleans Creole clarinet tradition, requires a larger tip opening than what is available from other mouthpiece manufacturers. Projection is fabulous and intonation is spot on with a beautiful tone. It is a free-blowing clarinet mouthpiece that you don’t need to fight to play. I also use the Chedeville Kaspar CB1 64mm, 65mm, and 66mm clarinet barrels. While these barrels do indeed look cool, they actually help with projection and intonation. I always have these 3 barrels in my case to help with intonation as needed.” Ryan Burrage on the JodyJazz JodyJazz GIANT Garzone Signature Model 10* and SUPER JET Tenor 9*: “When I’m called to play tenor for more traditional jazz/swing work, I play the JodyJazz GIANT Garzone Signature Model 10*. As Jody describes it, the mouthpiece provides a BIG sound, but not LOUD. I find it is well-balanced throughout the range, blends well with the ensemble, and the larger tip opening helps with projection. Intonation is spot on and it is very free-blowing, despite the larger tip. If I am called for more R&B/Jump Swing styles, I use the Super Jet 9*. I first tried the Super Jet at JEN 2020 in New Orleans at the JodyJazz booth, and I was blown away with the projection, tone, and intonation. It’s a mouthpiece that turns heads and definitely has a “wow” factor. As is the case with all of Jody’s mouthpieces, it is also free-blowing and easy to play.” Ryan Burrage on the JodyJazz DV Soprano Sax Mouthpiece: “Jody, got the DV 8* soprano mouthpiece today. Wow! Just wow! As you know, I’m heavily influenced by Sidney Bechet, and this mouthpiece gets me …
