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!”



Stephan Lange on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor

“After playing the custom dark for I while I have to say that it’s the best mouthpiece I’ve ever played. What a pity that I didn’t get it 25 years earlier. 😉 You have done a great job!”

“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.”
