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 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 saxophone for 25 years. In that time I have played many of the best known (and expensive) mouthpieces on the market. The instant I tried my friends HR 7*, I knew I needed to have one. It has a very balanced sound from the bottom of the range up to altissimo. It is free blowing with a very warm sound that still projects. It can be played in a whisper from the low Bb up to the top of the range, and the full spectrum of dynamics is easily playable, from ppp up to a honking fff. The best mouthpiece I have ever played.
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.
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 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!!!
Impossible to play this mouthpiece in tune. My old Selmer mouthpiece works much better.
I have been playing a lot of tenor the past year, and I have had a lot of difficulties in getting just an even tone from register to register. This mouthpiece solved all of those problems. I have used a Bari, Guardala, Links, and several others and this just gives me such a smooth even tone. Altissimo is great and in tune. I got the 8. I felt like it was the easiest to play and get a big dark sound. I use jazz select 3 med filed.
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.
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 professional sax player in Las Vegas and I?m writing to say how thrilled I am with my Jody Jazz HR7* tenor mouthpiece. I?ve been searching for years for a piece that would translate the sound I heard in my head to the real world. I?ve been through the whole list of tenor mouthpieces: Link, Lawton, Vandoren Jumbo Java, Berg, Meyer, and a gold plated Vandoren V16 (my wife almost fell over when she saw the $300 bill for that one). I was about to give up my search and put down the tenor for good until I tried the HR. I love the big, warm sound I get from the HR; round and full with just the right amount of edge and great projection. Depending on my ligature/reed set-up I can cover every gig with this one mouthpiece: straight-ahead jazz, R&B, rock, fusion. This piece makes playing tenor a joy again. What a great mouthpiece!
