Dino Govoni on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor

“I got a chance to play the new Dark piece… smokin’!
I loved the focus, warmth and evenness throughout the range of the horn.”

Lew Del Gatto on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor

“I tried the Jody Jazz HR Custom Dark 8* tenor piece that Arnie Krakowsky got from you and I thought it was great!

I loved the dark sound and how free blowing it was, I also dug the POWER RING ligature that was with it!

It reminded me of an old Link that I bought 60 years ago. I was a teenager, and an older cat that I respected,

said to me, “we don’t play a mouthpiece that is so open in the sax section”. (I don’t remember the facing but it was a very free- blowing piece!)

I was young, so I returned the piece and have regretted it ever since!

When I played your piece that memory came back to me.”

Paul Thackeray on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor

“I got my Custom Dark HR* in an 8 just yesterday and can’t put my tenor sax down. This is, without doubt, the best mouthpiece you have come out with to date – certainly as far as my preferred tone is concerned.”

Arnie Krakowsy on the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor

“This HR* CUSTOM DARK is knocking me out….!!!!! Love it. Lew Del Gatto fell in love with it also. This model will be a huge success for you.”

Vasilis Xenopoulos

“For years I was looking for a mouthpiece that would help me to get closer to the sound of two of my favorite players of all times, Dexter Gordon and Johnny Griffin. My JodyJazz DV Chicago 8* not only does that but also allows me to use the full depth of my tone whether it’s a jazz ballad or an up-tempo tune.”

“I’ve been using exclusively hard rubber mouthpieces on alto for years till I tried the JodyJazz DV Alto 7. I was really impressed as it has got all the qualities I’m looking on a mouthpiece. It combines great projection as well as the right warmth that I want my tone to have when I play jazz and on top of that just the right amount of resistance that helps with jazz phrasing.”

George Shelby

“I need my mouthpieces to play in tune, play easily, have a big sound with overtones, and play in whatever style a situation demands. JodyJazz mouthpieces give me all of that, while letting my own sound come out naturally.”

Jim Stranahan

“Jody’s mouthpieces are so free blowing and consistent. I have not seen quality control like this in any other mouthpiece company. These mouthpieces allow me to sound like I want, with the versatility to adjust my sound to the musical situation. Jody truly has a mouthpiece for every player!”

Marco Chérrez

“JodyJazz mouthpieces are the best I’ve tried! My Super Jet Alto 7 is everything I’ve been looking for in a mouthpiece. It is comfortable, powerful but stable, refined and aesthetically beautiful. I can play all the different styles I want and still keep my personal sound. I’ve never changed mouthpieces until I tried JodyJazz for the first time.”

Mark Hartsuch

“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. “

Benny Rubin Jr.

“I have been using Jody Jazz HR 7m mouthpieces for Soprano and Alto Sax since I was 13 years old and haven’t looked.The Mouthpiece allows me to plays with flexibility around the horn and I can play any style.I love the warmth that it proved”
