Noah Preminger on the JodyJazz HR* Tenor Sax Mouthpiece
“I can’t imagine ever playing another piece other than my Jody 10* hard rubber mouthpiece. It’s very free blowing and allows for many different colors and expressions. From when I’m playing quietly to when I want to blow the roof off the place, I just simply feel more in control of the sound.. and it’s a huge sound I get with this piece! Plus, the pitch is very solid in all registers. Jody’s amazing craftsmanship couldn’t be more highly recommended. “
