What Is the JET Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The JET is a bright saxophone mouthpiece with excellent projection, extra easy altissimo register and yet it has a very full bottom range that is easy to play. The JodyJazz JET Tenor Saxophone mouthpiece is free blowing, easy and fun to play mouthpiece that captures the full range of tonal qualities of the instrument. The JET has a clean, focused sound with strong projection and cut, while maintaining extraordinary versatility. The JodyJazz JET is excellent for Rock, Funk, Blues, Smooth Jazz and Latin Music, Reggae, Ska, Funk, Hip Hop, Top 40, Duranguense, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Compa, Tejano, Musica Popular Brasileira, but at the same time we think that many Tenor sax players will be surprised at how well it plays lead Tenor in a big band or Jazz Combo. In other words the JET is a great saxophone mouthpiece that seems to appeal to a very broad variety of players.
Four Goals in Creating the JET Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
- BRIGHT - To create a bright free blowing mouthpiece that is versatile while having more projection than most mouthpieces.
- ALTISSIMO - To create a mouthpiece that easily produces great altissimo notes. The Altissimo is actually helped by our new shorter facing curve, which is brand new to the JET.
- GREAT PRICE - To make an affordable sax mouthpiece that can be made with the same cutting edge technology as our metal sax mouthpieces, but costs much less than a metal mouthpiece.
- GREAT QUALITY - Each mouthpiece is individually play tested by Jody Espina or one of our professional saxophonists on staff to insure a perfect seal with the reed and proper response throughout the range of the saxophone. We demand and achieve the most rigorous quality control possible.

Special Notes on the JET Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
Due to the shorter facing curve on the JET a softer reed than you might normally use could be appropriate. This is because the reed actually has less length in which to vibrate. This doesn't hinder playing at all, in fact it makes the JET one of the greatest altissimo pieces of all time. Altissimo still works great with a little softer reed. These are my observations and how I like to play the JET. For example on a JodyJazz DV Tenor 7* I play a Rico Jazz Select 3M and on the JET Tenor 7* I prefer a 3S and sometimes even a 2H11. The JET is still free-blowing but I think the JET's shorter facing curve makes a difference with the reed. The main message is that anytime you are trying a new mouthpiece two things are very important: finding the right reed for the mouthpiece and making sure that while you try the mouthpiece you are in tune. Don't assume that it will go on the neck in the same place as your previous mouthpiece. In fact the JET pushes on further than many mouthpieces. I love the JET and I hope you will too.

Jody, the work you guys are doing with saxophone mouthpieces is fantastic. I recently purchased the Jody Jazz Jet Alto & Jody Jazz Jet 6 Tenor saxophone mouthpieces which are very easy to blow and has excellent projection, and I am totally in love with both! I live in an apartment complex and I don't have to blow hard to produce a sound, amazing! I've played Dukoff, Otto Link, Brilhart, Vandoren V16 for Tenor and more and none of them tops your mouthpieces! Someday I will puchase the DV New York model for my darker sounds.
Thanks Jody, Darrell E. Myles

"I received the JET Tenor last Friday and threw myself over the package as it arrived. This was followed by two days of agony until I found a good reed in the reed box. Then - WOW! What a blast! It does everything! Soft, Smooth, groovy, rock'n'roll, edgy, quiet, loud.... You name it. Ridiculously responsive, yet it plays effortlessly! I played for 2 hours straight without getting tired at all! Can't wait for the work day to end so I can get back on it. It's a keeper! Best regards,"Fredrik Erling, Hestra, Sweden
"Jody, Just wanted to shoot you an email to let you know how thrilled I am with the mouthpieces I purchased from you in Savannah at the GMEA convention. I purchased the Alto DV8 and I am still baffled at how a metal mouthpiece can be so free blowing, offer so much color, character and fatness to my tone, yet provide the projection I need. Still can't believe I am playing a metal MPC on an alto! The Tenor JET 8 has the character of tone of my old Link, yet the bite of my Ponzol. A perfect marriage of the two! Thanks again for taking time with me. I have some friends that will be at TMEA and I told them to go by your booth and check your mouthpieces out. Best Wishes! Joe "Joe Heiberger
"I recently contacted Jody Jazz with questions about the Jet mouthpiece. They sent me two to try, a Jet6 and a Jet7. From the first note played I knew I had a great mouthpiece. The sound I was looking for was there. I chose the Jet6 for my needs. The tone is outstanding. I get more volume and projection than the mouthpiece I have been using with the same amount of air through the horn. The craftsmanship is beautiful on this piece. Jody Jazz customer service leaves nothing out whether online or on the phone. I will now see which Jody Jazz mouthpiece will suit my needs for tenor. "William Williams, Augusta , Georgia
