“My JodyJazz mouthpiece allows me to play microtone sounds in Turkish Music very easily. It feels very natural and flexible at the same time… Does not matter how many different styles I play, I still keep my personal sound.”

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.

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.

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 …
