Owing to very significant increases in demand for the DV, DV NY and DV CHI models, we are currently experiencing an extraordinarily high level of backorders for these products. Consequently, we will not be accepting any new orders for these models until the backorders are back to a manageable level. As a result of this you might find that some JodyJazz dealers are temporarily out of stock of these models. We want to assure you that this is no fault of our dealers. We are focusing our production on reducing the backorders as quickly as possible and we expect all these models to be fully available again in just a few months time.

So reviewing two “siblings” (a DVNY alto mouthpiece and a DV baritone model) was not so much about testing the abilities of the design, but rather transposing the idea to other saxophones.

“Lets face it; a mouthpiece maker has a finite amount of time in the spotlight—just think of names like Dukoff, Guardala, Sugal, Barone, Gregory, etc. Jody Espina, on the other hand, has enjoyed an uncommonly long day in the sun for a mouthpiece manufacturer.”

“I have to admit that I have an addition. No, not to drugs or alcohol. I have an addiction to saxophone mouthpieces. Be they stock, custom, silver, gold, hard rubber, vintage, new-you name the mouthpiece, I have either owned it or tried it. But I know I’m not alone. If you’re reading this, chances are you have the addiction too…”
