Rubens Mariano on JodyJazz Mouthpieces
“JodyJazz offers me a “free blowing” mouthpiece without resistance. They are easy to play and capture the full range of tonal qualities of the instrument. The lower range of the saxophone gets a fat, round and strong sound, while the higher registers have a warm and refined sound. The mouthpiece has a clean sound, with excellent focus and projection and the construction and finishing is of the highest quality.”
