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'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 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?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!
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.
