“I was really impressed with the new HR* Custom Dark Tenor 8*. Its sound is really smooth and it is possible to change intonation according to the energy of my playing. It is an extremely fair and homogeneous mouthpiece. It goes where I want to go, that’s the most important thing to me! For a young musician this may be the time to take a sound color term to the next level. I recommend it to all my students because it brings more confidence. On soprano, the HR 7* model allowed me to find smooth listening and playing sensations – in the studio, these accuracies make the big difference.”
“It was love at first note. As soon as I played JodyJazz HR soprano and tenor 7* I knew that I found what I had been long searching for. The versatility and flexibility of the HR models are so unique and effective for the player that it gives me that big, warm and joyful sound without sacrificing pitch or control. I am very grateful to Jody Espina and his wonderful team for making JodyJazz mouthpieces a dream come true for saxophonist like myself.”
“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!”.
“I played an ESP Jody Jazz mouthpiece for 12 years, but when I tried a DV… wow!!! It is stronger, easier and especially I like the projection of the sound. It is compact, fluent and very uniform, from lower notes to higher notes and even on the overtones. DV mouthpiece makes me find the sound I like and I’m looking for: strong, tender or aggressive, precise on attack, very flexible but, above all, my own personal sound!”
“I’ve played JodyJazz tenor mouthpieces since the early days including the ESP, and different versions of the DV’s. They all have their own unique and even playing character throughout the range of the horn. However, I’ve now settled on one of his original #7 DV’s for situations where I want a sound big enough to fill a room without at PA and still retain a smooth, dark tone. For situations where I need to play more quietly with an even darker tone, I bring Jody’s HR* Tenor with an 8* facing and it gives me a lush sound with a lot of depth and warmth while still being able to project without feeling stuffy. Jody has a range of mouthpieces to suit virtually every player’s needs and I’ve always recommended them to players I meet including pros, teachers and students.”
“Thank you Jody, for the great mouthpieces.” “I can play this mouthpiece for Jazz and pop equally as well. “
“My JodyJazz Mouthpieces are amazing! Since I started playing on them my sound completely changed in all registers. For many years this is the sound I was looking for and really feel super comfortable and safe when playing any musical genre especially jazz. I recommend JodyJazz one hundred percent.”
