“I have been using JodyJazz mouthpieces for the past 3 years. Since then, I have been complimented more than ever about how centered my sound is, especially by engineers in the recording studio. Imagine a world where most every reed is playable. With JodyJazz, that has been my experience. JodyJazz is the new standard of mouthpiece making and I have yet to play on anything that I would even consider in the ballpark of these pieces.
Thank you Jody for your contributions to saxophone and making these pieces that have enabled me to find my sound. “
“I am in love with JodyJazz. I have played many different mouthpieces throughout my career and this one is special. From Bebop to fusion, the piece allows me to be versatile and i am loving it.”
“When I discovered the JodyJazz DV Tenor 7* & 8* I appreciated the roundness, warmth and comfort I got in concerts. The accuracy is perfect and precise .
After years of research , I finally found my mouthpiece! Like a great wine , I like its color, elegance and its finish. Its power allows me to play any style and I’m looking forward to trying other JodyJazz models!”
“The Super JET Tenor 8* is so off the hook and great! If you think you’ve got one of the greatest metal pieces ever, you do!”
“The freedom of expression and ability to let me create the sound I hear in my mind is paramount with JodyJazz mouthpieces. Quality and professionalism all go hand in hand to make these world class mouthpieces.”
“My JodyJazz DV Tenor 7* mouthpiece is the most important part of my Tenor Saxophone. Any kind of band or music that I have to play, my JodyJazz mouthpiece makes me smile and enjoy the sound.”
“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.”
“I must say my musical vocabulary has been enhanced thanks to the amazing sound JodyJazz mouthpieces. Your mouthpieces bring life to my music!”
“The tone through each one of my saxophones starts by entering one of Jody’s fabulous mouthpieces. With a variety of styles, and materials, I’m confident that there is a mouthpiece in his catalogue to be paired with any saxophonist’s horn. All of my JodyJazz mouthpieces are free blowing, and beautifully hand crafted. My main sax is the tenor. From the first time playing it, I loved the DV Tenor 7*. My sound was warmer, but could project louder AND speak softer. Articulations were easier to pronounce, and my altissimo notes grew in range and beauty. Curious, I tried the DV CHI Tenor 7*, and loved it as well. I play on this as my main piece, and it pairs nicely with my silver Selmer horn.
In 2014, I played tenor and baritone sax with Canadian singing icon Gino Vannelli. This was the first time that I played the bari sax, and it wasn’t easy until I picked up a DV Baritone 8 mouthpiece. The DV made it easy to blow a beautiful tone through the sax, while I only needed to focus on the music.
One of the trickier saxes; the soprano, needs a lot of focus and dedication to hone a personalized tone, with good intonation. When I switched from a reputable manufacturer, to the DV Soprano 7*, I was able to work on my sound, instead of fighting with the technical difficulties the soprano sax. This mouthpiece darkened the tones and made the instrument less ‘nasal’, and super fun to play.
I seldom play the alto, but when I do, I can ease into it with a DV Alto 7 mouthpiece. Switching between the different JodyJazz mouthpieces is easy and comfortable. Thank you Mr. Espina, and your fantastic staff for your contributions to the saxophone community!”
“Finally I’ve found the perfect combination of tenor mouthpieces for every situation. Using the DV Tenor 7* for rock, pop and contemporary jazz gives me all the power and precision I could ever want. The HR Alto 6M is great for intimate acoustic settings and a warmer, sound. With both of these in my case, I’m ready for any gig.”
