Description
The JodyJazz DV is the state of the art in saxophone mouthpieces.
  • Perfect facing curve
    Equal response across all registers
    Excellent projection
    Complex harmonics
    Cap, ligature and pouch included

Jody Jazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
The JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece produces a bigger, fatter sound that is achieved effortlessly with better intonation and response. This mouthpiece was created to be the most efficient mouthpiece possible. That means that there are lots of harmonics and great projection, without the annoying shrillness that is associated with loud bright mouthpieces. This mouthpiece comes with Theo Wanne's innovative cap, ligature and pouch.

JodyJazz uses a new proprietary CNC facing technology that puts the perfect facing curve on the mouthpiece. This results in absolutely no dead spots in the vibration of the reed, with the notes in all ranges responding equally. It has a husky barrel-chested tone, while being able to sing and soar over the top of any band. Subtoning and low notes are extremely easy and the altissimo is out of this world. Be prepared to have possibly the most fun you ever have had on the saxophone.

"Skeptival Perfection"

2 people out of 3 found this review helpful

As every lead alto sax player should know, out blowing the rest of the band can be hard at times especially if you want to keep good tone. I was looking for a mouthpiece that would supply superb projection, tone, and playability. The Jody Jazz DV was just that. I ordered a size 6 and received it within a week. The mouthpiece immediately blew away all previous mouthpieces I had tried, including Otto link metals and meyer rubbers. The DV gives incredible tone in the middle range and allows you to play freely in the lower and high registers. Finding a right reed for the DV was a challenge but in the end I found that Rico La Voz Mediums are the best. Vandoren Java Red are also acceptable. In conclusion, the quality of this mouthpiece definately outweighs the price and any sax player looking for a good metal should give this a try. Good job Jody Jazz and WWBW.

"great freeblowing mouthpiece"

The Jody Jazz Mouthpieces are excellent. I tried them all before deciding which was best suited for me. The DV is freeblowing and clear, allows for a lot of tone & dynamic control. The DV is loud and can take whatever you give it. I found that it was necessary to play a harder reed, or a reed with a thicker tip (Vandoren V16) as the softer reed and the thinner tip ( Vandoren ZZ) simply couldn't handle all the vibration and didn't do the mouthpiece justice. I personally decided that the DV NY was for me because I go for more of a vintage sound in smaller combo settings. But those playing contemporary, or needing a lot of volume especially leads in a big band would do really well with this piece.

"The meaning of perfection"

Once in a while a product comes along that blows everything out of the water and redefines performance and quality. Jody Espina has done such a thing in the DV series mouthpiece. He now offers high baffle as well as a darker "New York" model in alto and tenor. Let me be plain about this. If you?re serious about your alto playing, your search for a mouthpiece will end here. If you're an older player a new energy and enjoyment will be born in you for playing. Jody offers a number of facings but you will want to either get a larger opening than you're used to or you will end up playing on a significantly stronger reed with this mouthpiece. At $450, the price for this piece is mind boggling but it should keep out all but the most serious of players. You will want to play NO other mouthpiece after you play this on and there is nothing it won't do. More in tune, bigger, fatter bottom notes, and full bodied high register notes as well as ease of harmonics for altissimo. It will be a long time before anyone puts out a mouthpiece that will surpass this one

"Unbelievable!"

I have been playing professionally since 1967. I have done everything from professional orchestra to professional big bands. For classical playing, I use the Larry Teal mouthpiece. I allows me to produce the best classical sound without challenge. Through the years I have used a Brillhart 3* for big band because it gives me a brighter, edgier sound with more volume - perfect for playing lead alto. Recently, however, with more modern charts, I've struggled trying to keep up with blazing brass sections. I've never felt comfortable with metal mouthpieces, but after reading about the Jody Jazz DV I thought that I would give it a try. For years I've used a metal Brillhart Level Air on Bari, but, I've never liked the "feel" of metal on an alto. Let me tell you, the instant I tried the Jody Jazz DV, I knew that I had found what I was looking for. Bright, easy to play, slight edge - everything that I hoped it would be. I've got a #7 and it's amazing! I know from experience that a mouthpiece that works for one doesn't always work for someone else, but, I recommend that you give it a try. Awesome!

I am primarily a tenor player, but i like to keep my chops up on all of the saxes like any good reed master should. I am in my fifth year of playing saxophone. I love to play jazz, and funk. This mouthpiece really is the funkiest thing ever made for sax. Its sound is so big!!! I love its bright sound, I am actually in the process of buying one for my tenor as well. Jody Jazz is killer!! If you are thinking about buying this mouthpiece, don't think twice, just DO IT!!!

What is the difference between these and the new ottolink STM?
[+] Click to See Answer
I am extremely close to purchasing this fine mouthpiece. On it however, the options are "facings" while on the Jody Jazz website it is tip opening. Obviously one would not want to order the incorrect tip opening especially at a cost of 550. Can you explain to me what "facing" is on your website?
