JodyJazz mouthpieces are made from only the finest materials and the really stand up to the rigors of the road, playing night after night. I always feel my sound is always right there and effortlessly gives me the sound I need both in live shows and in recording studios. I first started playing the JodyJazz DV Tenor 7 when I was in London and because I love that so much have since also added the DV Alto 7 for my Alto.”
