Jody Jazz HR* Tenor Saxophone MouthpieceThis special hard rubber has the look, feel and sound of vintage hard rubber. Each mouthpiece is faced on a special machine and is then finished by hand. The HR* (pronounced HR star) produces a beautiful warm sound with free-blowing ease. This Hard Rubber Saxophone Mouthpiece features a round, medium size chamber. The HR* is suited for Traditional Jazz, Big Band, Straight-Ahead and Bebop, but also has enough power for more modem styles. This is a favorite of band directors for its ability to blend in with a section.

I bought this piece a couple months ago. I had tried many pieces before this one, but all the others were either too bright or too stuffy. This mouthpiece has given me "MY" sound. I am now inspired by my sound....Truly the best piece out there if you are looking for that 1950's-1960's classic jazz tone. Way to go Jody!!!
I've been playing this mouthpiece on my 1921 Buescher C-Melody horn since I discovered it a couple of years ago. I get rich, full low-end, and clean, clear upper register. Playing a 7* with a Ligiere 2 3/4 studio-cut plastic reed and a Rico lig. Creat piece for this horn, it makes it speak like a Tenor, but with a unique vintage sound.
I have been playing on a new vintage Otto Link 7* on a Selmer Mark VI 155XXX. I got both a 6* and a 7* HR* to try out. Of the two, I liked the 7* better with a Vandoren Java 3 1/2 reed. Unfortunately for me, the HR* did not fit on my horn. My cork was too narrow due to my Link. Also, the piece played very sharp. If my cork had been the right thickness, the mouthpiece would have gone on maybe a half inch on the neck in order to play in tune. This piece has a great sound, I only wish the shank was narrower and didn't play so sharp on my horn.
I contacted Jody Espina directly thru his website to solicit his opinion on which of his pieces I should try in order to get a very controllable vintage jazz sound that retained body in the tone in order to play a better jazz ballad. I mentioned that I was using a friend's New York Meyer. He suggested I try on a trial basis the HR* 6 and the ESP 6.
I thought the HR* 6 had a real nice tone. It was very warm with some bite at the edge of the sound. I thought it sounded a lot like the New York Meyer medium a friend was loaning me, but with very slightly more crispness. I would have no reservations whatsoever playing this piece on a jazz gig. My only reservation was that I needed to have a real stiff reed in there to get a subtone down to low C or so with my particular horn. The HR* 6 really sounded nice, and for the money, it's a steal, considering Jody plays every piece before it goes out.
The only reason I didn't keep the HR* was because the ESP absolutely knocked me out, and I couldn't afford to keep both. For players looking for a New York Meyer-ish vintage sound without the price premium, this piece comes pretty darn close! I may go back and buy this one too for some versatility when finances improve a little. Its combination of edge and tone actually seemed to be *in between* the ESP 6's two sounds (with and without the ESP's spoiler inserted).
I now have in my collection 3 rather good mouthpieces. I have the 8* Jody Jazz HR, an 8* Otto Link HR and a 10* Otto Link new York Metal. Each differs a bit. For sheer projection the metal is best. Of the two HRs the Jody Jazz has the better control but the Otto Link is just slightly smoother in tone. The Jody Jazz is probably the best crafted as it will give a little better attack on low notes and produces a consistant tone across the whole register. it looks like tradeoff is the name of the game when choosing mouthpieces. Don't be afraid to buy the Jody Jazz. It is a good addition to any collection. I am using it more than the others at least for the time being.
