What is the DV HR Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece?

The DV HR Tenor is a fun and exciting mouthpiece from the moment you play it. It will give you an effortless response that delivers shimmering highs and booming lows. You will be able to scream, cry and soothe with this versatile mouthpiece.

Tenor sax players need a mouthpiece that lets them play a live gig with enough volume and highs to be heard but to also be able to play beautifully and sweetly.

The DV HR Tenor is that mouthpiece. Play one note and we think you will be instantly convinced.

Secrets of the DV HR Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

The DV HR Tenor uses the patented DV secondary window to add mid and low harmonics, resulting in a more authoritative tone than normal tenor sax mouthpieces provide. And the long straight somewhat high baffle gives the mouthpiece it’s fantastic projection and cutting power along with excellent altissimo.

The proportions of the DV HR are derived from the Golden Mean Proportions found in nature. When applied to a saxophone mouthpiece Jody Espina found a magical set of proportions that have made the DV Series mouthpieces one of the most sought-after mouthpieces in the world. Now those magical proportions are available in a hard rubber mouthpiece.

The facing curve is inspired by the golden mean as are many of the design decisions of the mouthpiece. The result is a harmonious invention that provides ease of playing while allowing for beautiful musical expression.

Math & Music Make Sublime Art

With the new DV HR series, JodyJazz is also introducing its newest bite plate technology. The DV HR series models are the first JodyJazz hard rubber mouthpiece to feature a bite plate embedded into the beak of the mouthpiece. The plate features the iconic ‘Phi’ symbol logo in gold, a characteristic of the classic DV series, completing the stunning look of this new mouthpiece. The new bite plate is not only beautiful but is also functional. However, we do recommend using a mouthpiece cushion on top of the bite plate for comfort of the player and longevity of the bite plate.

Free Blowing Power, with a Big Fat Versatile Sound

The DV HR Tenor features a stylized gold-plated brass ring on the shank of the mouthpiece. The distinctive profile of the ring was created also using the golden mean proportions. The brass ring adds more mass on the shank of the mouthpiece which results in increased stability, more body in the sound and increased harmonics.

Does Not Include Ligature

This mouthpiece does not come with a ligature or a cap. Your current ligature (if you have a hard rubber mouthpiece) should fit, but for upgrades on the ligature you can look here at our POWER RING® Ligatures. The POWER RING HRT1 Gold and HRT1S Silver will fit the new DV HR Tenor. In addition, both of the Hand-Hammered POWER RINGS HRT1HHG Gold and HRT1HHRG Rose Gold will also fit this new model.

Upgrade to a POWER RING® Ligature

You will love the simplicity, beauty, and effectiveness of the POWER RING Ligature. The POWER RING provides both a significant improvement in performance and greatly enhanced visual appeal. The POWER RING features a concave inner design, which reduces the touch points on the reed, thereby maximizing reed vibration. There are no moving or added parts, thereby increasing the efficiency of vibration. The increased mass and greater wall thickness of the new POWER RING Ligature, together with its more contoured shape, provides a more solid contact with the reed at the points where they touch. This allows the most freedom and vibration of the reed, which in turn also increases the amount of harmonics present, allowing the fullest saxophone sound containing high, mid, and low frequencies.
