Esdras Gallo on JodyJazz Mouthpieces
Esdras Gallo on the JodyJazz HR* Alto 7M.
Long ago I was looking for a sound for the alto sax that could reproduce the sound of a jazzy and pop tone in the same mouthpiece. It is amazing how this mouthpiece manages to darken the sound for a jazz music and also to explore a more aggressive sound for the pop style. I am extremely pleased with the result of the HR * Series.
Esdras Gallo on the JodyJazz HR* Soprano 8*.
I have a preference for a darker sound for the soprano sax and this mouthpiece does just that, it allows a sound without stridency and favors the most severe frequencies, at the same time brings a sophisticated and balanced sound in all octaves for the instrument. Congratulations Jody, your mouthpieces are “hors concours”.
