Great Mouthpiece Depending on Reed

By

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I use a JDX5..... on Vandoren Java green 3's gives a bright tone perfect for soloists but tends to stick out if you play with voices (I play with church choirs). With Java Red 3's the reeds help you to stay (in the pocket) more which is my conventional setup. Instrument is a Cannonball Big Bell Stone Series. Solid mouthpiece, just change the reeds for the environment you're playing in or group you're playing with. Using this mouthpiece for my church choirs and thinking about getting a Beechler Diamond Inlay for solo work, but it gets the job done if you're on a budget

Excellent and a reasonable price.

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have tried several alto m/p's in the local concert band over the past few years and never found one that really did an all around good job. Even tried a couple of classic "well known" brands at a much higher price. I ordered this model (JDX5) based upon the reviews and some discussions on a sax message board. Does the job with no issues at all for concert band. Yes it has a baffle which helps to produce more volume and it can be bright but one can get a reasonably warm dark tone with a reed that has a thicker heart. And it comes through very well on the more upbeat show style arrangements when some lead work is needed. So I just ordered a #8 to see how it will do with my "party band" where I need volume and a bit more edge. I presently use an RPC 90HB so it will be interesting to hear the comparison. I wish they made a larger tip opening on the tenor model.

Impressed

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I play in a few bands where I am the only alto and there are five or more trumpets. This mouthpiece (JDX6) gives me the volume I am looking for. It also demonstrates good low to high projection, control of tone, excellent intonation and works with most reeds between #2 and #3 1/2. This is not a "classic" sounding mouthpiece but it gives the experienced player the ability to shape their sound and stand out when needed. If you only want to buy 2 or 3 mouthpieces this should be one of them.

Maybe...

By

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Pros: Better than a stock mouthpiece, extremely wide dynamic range, CHEAP!!! Cons: Doesn't respond well to imperfect reeds, thins out easily, sometimes unstable, not well suited to straight-ahead jazz, somewhat compromised intonation. This mouthpiece definitely has its own sound... if you play a lot of lead, you might like it. Personally, I find myself 'fighting' it to get the warm sound I want. I can still achieve the same presence and edge with a round chamber/low baffle mouthpiece (vintage Meyer type) without tone and intonation compromises. There are better options, but you have to pay more to have them.

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This mouthpiece is a bright mouthpiece if you don't use air support. Without air support you cannot play with a tone that belongs in a big band or a school jazz band. otherwise it does great when you get use to it and when you tune it goes more on the end of the cork than in the middle.

Best Alto Mouthpiece

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have to say after 25 years of playing Jazz this mouthpiece is the best I have ever played for the Alto Sax. It is more versatile than a New York Meyer! I played the Meyer 7M for 10 years before switching to this JDX7 beauty about 15 years ago. I do lie the 'buzz' effect of the New York Meyer but you can't play a classical gig with that mouthpiece.

Can't beat this mpc

By

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have been playing classical alto with a Rousseau NC4 on a vintage SML and it has a great sound. I play in town bands with vintage Conns and have a small collection of mouthpieces most in the $100 - $150 range and a few in the $250. I still thought I needed a mpc that would give me a better sound. I purchased the JDX6 and use Rico Jazz 3 soft reeds. The sound is perfect. It can play soft and really has power when pushed. There are always intonation problems with these vintage horns that you learn to adjust to but with the JDX it was almost spot on up and down the horn. This mpc is as good if not better than all the pieces I have. It is a great buy.

Good Buy

By 

from Louisiana

Comments about E. Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This mouthpiece is an excellent mouthpiece. Sound is rich and full along with enough edge to produce an excellent jazz tone. I prefer to use it with #3 Vandoren reeds. With that reed it makes the mouthpiece very flexable. With this setup you can go from a solid semi-classical tone to a rich jazz tone with just a simple push of more air. A stronger reed will give you a more rich classical tone as well. You can not go wrong with this buy. From the moment you open the pretty box you will be happy with this mouthpiece.
