Jazmin Ghent on the JodyJazz DV
When I first saw the DV Tenor 7 mouthpiece I was intrigued by its striking appearance. The sound was OUTSTANDING! It provides controlled projection equally on both high and low registers. The altissimo register plays with ease which is usually a common issue among mouthpieces. I attempted to compare the JodyJazz to the mouthpiece I was using at the time (very well-known mouthpiece) and immediately realized there was no comparison. I would HIGHLY recommend the DV.
