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 just have to echo what others have said. I've been using a 7* with a medium La Voz reed on tenor for about two years. I loved it then and love it now. I get many compliments on my sound. It's rich in overtones, the timbre is even from bottom to top, and allows me to really control dynamics and shading. What a find!
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 had read that these were like the vintage HR link that Getz played and I was trying to get a warmer Getz-like sound for restaurant playing. The 8 I got had a great sound if you wanted a Meyer style Rollins sound , but it was to bright for me.
I may try the 10. George Garzone gets a very Getzy sound with it.
This mouthpiece is incredible! I tried out a couple of these pieces and was absolutely ready to buy the 7 until I played a used 9*. WOW! I play the 9* on a silver Rampone R1 Jazz with Brancher Jazz 3.5s, and it's got the smoothest most incredible response all the way up AND down! I had been having trouble with my low end on this horn, but I think the big open chamber was the ticket. I was very skeptical of a .125 tip, but it's really a great playing piece. Note: the altissimo is hard. Moving up in reeds will help.
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.
Please recommend a ligature that works well with this Jody Jazz tenor mouthpiece and give me the size I need. What type of Rovner or other mouthpiece would you recommend?
I have been using metal mouthpieces, some more expensive that this by far! But I wanted the big warm sound of the great balladeers, Jug, Fathead, Big Ben, and a bit of Houston Person. I can't stop playing this new mouthpiece: it is so big, warm and sweet, and when you push from the abdomen it has power and edge too. It goes from the low B flat to high F sharp and into the stratosphere effortless: responds fast and clear at all octaves. Best deal on the market! I have bee, with Jody Jazz 8*, I feel finally at peace, like I've come home.
I'm a lead tenor player in our community college big band. I'm playing a very bright Yamaha 61 tenor and I needed a good HR piece that would calm this horn down alittle, give me a more even tone, and help improve the even-ness of the scale.
This mouth-piece has accomplished these goals very well. I find the HR to provide me with surprising versatility and responds quite well to reed selection. It seems to prefer non filed reeds, I'm currently using ZZ's. With an ultimate lig.
I feel for section playing and jazz combo work this is a fine mouth piece you wont be disappointed with. As a starting point try the 7* and go from there.
I'm not going to give this piece a 5 star rating because I'm not a professional player. Just trying to give an honest assessment.
This mouthpiece is extremely versatile. I recently made the switch from an Otto Link metal 6*, and this one played well right out of the box, first one i tried!! I use it to play my jazz gigs as well as my pit orchestra gigs. It's also a very affordable choice, especially among the Jody Jazz mouthpieces. Highly recommended for anyone looked to make a switch!
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).
