The sound of a metal mouthpiece for the price of hard rubber.
JodyJazzs Classic Series Baritone mouthpiece is designed to get the job done in any performance situation. The mouthpiece can sound bright and powerful or dark and mellow due to the patented removable baffle called a spoiler. With the spoiler in place, the sound is great for many styles of music including jazz, rock, funk, and top 40. Without the spoiler, the roundish square chamber takes over and produces a dark, focused sound that is great for concert band and small ensembles. Either way, the JodyJazz Classic Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece is robust and responsive in the low register with an altissimo that is warm and in tune.

After testing several mouthpieces, I found that the Rousseau JDX7 and the Jody Jazz Classic (#7)met my needs equally well--as long as the spoiler was used in the Jody Jazz. They both struck the ideal balance between power/projection/edge versus ease of playing/controllability I was searching for. Both are more than capable of handling any jazz or rock playing situation I might encounter, whether ensemble or soloing. I went with the Jody Jazz only because of the additional flexibility it offers when the spoiler is removed--basically it gives me a rounder, less edgy and more 'legit' sound. I don't like having a lot of mouthpieces lying around, and having all my playing needs met by a single mouthpiece has a great deal of appeal to me. The Jody Jazz was only a little more expensive than the JDX, so it made the most sense for me. But I'd highly recommend either of these fine mouthpieces, and don't see how you could go wrong with either.
I am amazed at the sound difference that the spoiler makes inside the mouthpiece. Slip the spoiler in and it's a whole new animal! It has the power and edge of a metal mouthpiece, but can whisper if it needs to. Without the spoiler it can be used as a classical mouthpiece. This mouthpiece has a multitude of possibilities and i highly advise trying one!
Simply fantastic. This mouthpiece is so easy to play. It makes me feel like a real bari player rather than an alto/tenor player doubling on bari. I especially like it with the spoiler in it.
