“I love playing my JodyJazz mouthpieces. They play and sound like no other mouthpiece I’ve ever played. There’s an ease to playing, without sacrificing the body of a sound.”



David Beecroft on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor

“This is a very expressive mouthpiece. It has a lovely combination of tone colors and a dry centered feel. Played quietly it sings and is warm and fuzzy. When you put more air through it, it becomes muscular and dignified. If sound were chocolate then this mouthpiece is 100% cocoa.”



Paul Thackeray on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor

“I got my Custom Dark HR* in an 8 just yesterday and can’t put my tenor sax down. This is, without doubt, the best mouthpiece you have come out with to date – certainly as far as my preferred tone is concerned.”



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.”



David Beecroft

“Every so often I have gotten the itch to try a new/different mouthpiece. This usually happens when I find myself in my favorite music shop with a little too much time on my hands. Normally I try a few mouthpieces, shrug my shoulders and think “Nothing here really speaks to me, my piece plays just fine.” That was the story until Jody’s HR tenor mouthpiece appeared in the selection. This mouthpiece spoke to me loud, fat and clear. Not long after buying the tenor piece I replaced my alto refaced link with the JodyJazz HR* Alto and the The DV is the most expressive baritone mouthpiece I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Jody’s mouthpieces are stable, in tune, allow a huge dynamic range and give me the freedom to be very expressive with my sound. Now the only reason to go to the shop is to get the horn tweaked and chat a bit.”



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. It gives me the perfect amount of resistance to focus my sound and it takes care of those unwanted high frequencies.”



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. 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!” “Jody, You complete me;) Man, it’s as if you are reading my mind and making exactly what I want! The Custom Dark Soprano 7* blows easily with a warm core and solid intonation. Love it!”
