Jeff Kashiwa on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Alto and Tenor

“The JodyJazz HR* CUSTOM DARK mouthpieces for tenor and alto have the sound I’ve been wanting for years. In the past I have played the Jody Jazz DV 7* tenor and DV 7 alto metal mouthpieces. They are great pieces, but I have been wanting the ability to go even darker, richer and warmer with my tone particularly in the studio and on straight ahead jazz gigs. The HR* CUSTOM DARK mouthpieces have a perfect balance of responsiveness and even resistance through the entire range of the horn through the altissimo. Most importantly they produce a warm yet detailed sound that is very inviting. Simply put, I love playing them!”



Mike Burton on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Alto

“I’ve been searching for an Alto mouthpiece to roll off some of the high end on my sound. The HR* Custom Dark is that mouthpiece. It gives me the perfect amount of resistance to focus my sound and it takes care of those unwanted high frequencies.”



Dan White

“Jody’s HR 8 allows me to do everything that I can imagine with ease. It has warmth and the right amount of cut allowing me to do my thing in any musical setting. Hemke 4 reeds with the Jody Jazz HR 8 gets me the fat sound from top to bottom that I am looking for.” “The HR Custom Dark Mouthpiece sounds incredible!! It has a nice, consistent response through all the registers. This mouthpiece makes the the horn resonates more giving each note a nice deep, rich, and full sound. Altissimo responds beautifully and the intonation is spot on.” “The JodyJazz Clarinet mouthpiece makes the clarinet a whole lot more fun to play and record with. It brings out the nice warm, woody sound of the instrument with great intonation and is super consistent through all registers at any dynamic.”



Marcos Contreras

“I played the baritone saxophone using my old mouthpiece for so much time and just found it acceptable. However, I never realized how much was missing until I had the JodyJazz DV NY in my hands and then everything changed for me. I never thought a mouthpiece could be so comfortable and the sound so spectacular. It was a full resonant sound, round and dark tone, everything that Jody says is true. It is like playing an alto saxophone but in a baritone saxophone! All my reeds sound great also. Since then I continue to enjoy this great mouthpiece and I recommend it 100 percent. Now, I can say it is perfect instead of acceptable!”



Michael Burton

“I’m loving the new Tenor Custom Dark. It’s definitely giving me the warm sound that I’ve been looking for. It plays evenly throughout the entire range of the horn, and gives me the perfect amount of resistance to focus my sound.” “The JodyJazz HR 8 is the perfect mouthpiece for me. It allows me to play evenly throughout the entire range of the horn, and consistency creates the tone that I desire to have. I have one for my alto and my tenor. Thanks Jody!” “I’ve been searching for an Alto mouthpiece to roll off some of the high end on my sound. The HR* Custom Dark is that mouthpiece.

Jeff Kashiwa

“Every sax player searches for the ultimate mouthpiece. Over the years I have collected a shoe box full of them! My search ended when I tried the Jody Jazz DV Tenor 7* for my tenor sax. I’m able to control the pitch and tonal center from altissimo down to low Bb. It has all the the projection and power I need for contemporary music with the warmth and control that a jazz balled requires. Jody, thanks for ending my search!” “The JodyJazz HR* CUSTOM DARK mouthpieces for tenor and alto have the sound I’ve been wanting for years.

The Custom Dark Soprano 7* blows easily with a warm core and solid intonation. Love it!”
