For the straight ahead, modern jazz player.
The JodyJazz DV Series Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece combines knowledge from the past with proven innovations. The use of Golden Section Proportions, or Phi Proportions, between the facing, bore, and chamber are used to create an efficient mouthpiece with more harmonics and increased projection. These same proportions are found in the Stradivarius violins, Nautilus shell, and Egyptian Pyramids. This mouthpiece comes with cap and, ligature.
Proven innovations like a secondary window and new facing curve have been adapted from the popular alto and tenor DV mouthpieces to the baritone. The secondary window allows sound waves to hit the vibrating reed and blast through the horn like a moving baseball being hit by a bat for a home run. The new facing design creates a reed with no dead spots resulting in an equal response throughout all registers. A big, broad tone with both an easy low range and amazing altissimo are also a benefit of the new facing. JodyJazz finds saxophonists that prefer a little brighter tone over traditional jazz mouthpieces like the DV most.
Since the DV has a little more curve to the facing than usual, a slightly harder reed should be used. Harder reeds have an increased reed life and make playing in the altissimo easier.

Comments about JodyJazz DV Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece:
I have played tenor, alto, baritone and flute for 45 years. For a reason not that I would say that I like the sound of the baritone more than alto and tenor, but that I wanted to play the baritone sax as my main axe, with flute and alto flute, guitar and 6 string electric bass as my secondary instruments in a jazz, rock, blues and newer styles with the younger generation. Jody Jazz has had a good reputation for a top line professional mouthpiece. I researched their customer's who endorsed this product and really liked the satisfaction guarantee from W&B as this is a major investment. The DV 7* is making me a better player. The Bari is my main focus now. I'm using a 4 Rico as was recommended. The presence in all registers is just incredible. I am focusing on harmonic's as warmups and exercises as recommended by J. Michael Leonard and David liebman's, Ernie Watt's study books. The versatility of this huge baritone saxophone is amazing to me. It is powerful, soft, riveting, and a flexible response, turns on a dime and is captivating to an audience. I love this set-up I am using. A Jupiter 893ArtistSG with a jodyjazzDV7* mouthpiece and Rico 4 reed and a Rovner Mark III ligature. Finding the right rig is just as important as daily practice. Smokin Joe said that!
