Jody and Company, I am a 42 year-old-dog learning new tricks. I have played the guitar and bass for over 20 years and have always loved the saxophone. Last year, I took the plunge and adventure of being a horn player. The last year has been full of ups and downs, frustrations of a new instrument I assume. Regardless, I have kept pushing. I recently ordered an HR*, 7* and instantly fell in love. This is what I have been missing! My Otto Link and stock mouthpiece may never see the light of day again. I have had your HR* for a week and my practicing has gone from “ugh” to ” bring it on!”. I must also tell you why I chose to purchase a Jody Jazz mouthpiece. In my research or quest.for a new mouthpiece I watched a video of Jody describing his story and that he felt a player should ‘be able to play with every breath’. And I agree because I found myself spending so much time focusing on how to make this horn sound well. Additionally, the HR* being one of the top sellers I figured it was worth the investment. Come to find out, it is well worth the investment. Thank you, thank you,thank you I look to adding the GIANT next. Thanks again Patrick Edwards

“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.”
Jody: What can I say? I LOVE this mouthpiece. It’s got guts, it’s got growl, it’s got altissimo…and it’s got perfect intonation. I have never been happy with my Mk VI tenor because of intonation problems, but, baby, they’re gone. I love this piece!
When I first tried out the new Jody Jazz HR 7*, I noticed an immediate change in my sound. Bigger, and with a little more edge especially in the high register. Wow! That’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. After trying out all kinds of mouthpieces I finally found the one. Thanks Jody!
I just got the mouthpiece yesterday after about a week of searching for the right mouthpiece. WOW! What a difference! I’m a high school student in a jazz band and sax quartet and have been looking for this sound since I started playing, round, rich, big, and above all, easy to play even with worn out, several month old reeds. I tried it out in a music store against 3 others which are now irrelevant – I was sold from my first note! The HR* is not only a mouthpiece, it is a masterpiece!
Hi Jody, I received the mouthpiece today; it’s excellent, very dark, lots of sound, great articulation. I’m keeping it. You are under charging for sure. You came highly recommended by Jerry Bergonzi. I see why. Next time I’m in New York, I’d like to make an appointment with you, if possible, to play some more. Thank you for an excellent product and service. Take Care,
Hi Jody, I want you to know how this mouthpiece fits me. I didn’t know it before, you know I believe that you search for one sound but suddenly you try a setup and understand that it is YOUR sound and that’s what happened with this terrific mouthpiece. Thanks to do such a good job!
