Phil Dwyer on the JodyJazz GIANT Tenor 7*
"Because I play in many different styles I need a mouthpiece that has the flexibility to allow me to create the sound that I am hearing at any given moment. The GIANT Tenor 7* offers a great dynamic range and a broad tonal palette that lets me meet the musical demands of whatever musical situation I’m in."
