“From the moment that I first played a JodyJazz mouthpiece I immediately realized what “MY” sound was. I’m able to express my true voice on the saxophone with these mouthpieces. With JodyJazz, I’m also able to play any genre without having to switch mouthpieces. As soon as I played the first note, I received a response that no other mouthpiece has given me.”
