Victor Aguiar on the JodyJazz JET 6
“Jody encouraged me to try the JET 6 even though I had never played anything mouthpiece larger than a 5 and when I tried the 5, Jody encouraged me to try the JET 6. Wow! I had never sounded such a velvety beautiful sound before. The bottom end of the saxophone sounded so beautiful that I thought maybe the high notes would be weak super clear and also beautiful sounding. Even altissimo came out easier than any other mouthpiece I had played before. The JodyJazz Alto JET is amazing and I haven't let it out of my sight since I first tried it.”
Victor Aguiar on the JodyJazz HR* Soprano Sax 6*:
“I have had a very difficult time trying to find a soprano sax mouthpiece that could give me the diversity I need for all the different gigs I do from calm romantic Kenny G songs to Blues to Jazz to Eric Marienthal. The HR* is the perfect soprano mouthpiece for my kind of sound. I can play any kind of music on it. I am delighted.”
