Get the sound from the jazz greats of the 40s, 50s and 60s.
The JodyJazz DV NY Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece is designed for traditional jazz. It has a deep chamber which produces a fat, dark sound with plenty of low end. Saxophone players using a vintage mouthpiece will appreciate the similar tone of their vintage with the advantage of a modern feel. The DV NY is less stuffy and easier to play than many vintage mouthpieces. It also produces crisp articulation even when moving quickly from high to low notes. This mouthpiece comes with Theo Wanne's innovative cap, ligature and pouch.
The DV NY was designed with three major differences from most mouthpieces. The first creates the most efficient mouthpiece possible, and to achieve this feat Golden Section Proportions, or Phi Proportions, are used between the facing, bore and chamber. These same proportions are found in Stradivarius Violins, the Nautilus shell, and Ancient Pyramids. The result is a sound with increased harmonics and projection using the same amount of air compared to other mouthpieces. The next feature is the use of a secondary window to push more sound through the horn. It works by bouncing sound waves off a vibrating reed instead of a solid piece of metal. This creates an effect similar to a swinging bat hitting baseball. The moving sound wave hits the vibrating reed and propels it through the saxophone. The third feature is a new facing curve. This new curve prevents dead spots on the reed which makes the saxophone respond evenly through the entire range.

Comments about JodyJazz DV NY Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece:
While I've played saxophone for many years (amatuer adult player)...I've always used a Hard Rubber mouthpiece. I'd only EVER tried one other metal mouthpiece and the "sharp edges" on the mouthpiece bothered me. Now, as an adult, I'm just set in my ways...but this DV NY was an eye opening experience. Attacks.....dynamics....intonation...projection...and just pure Bari Sound with this mouthpiece amazed me. Soft Low A's just rumbled out in a rehearsal Monday night.....but high notes sang out with a pure, clear sound. I prefer a darker, fatter sound....and this DV NY delivers. While I was afraid the 7* would be too open, it wasn't. I'm using a Forestone #3 currently and this thing just sings. I had an entire sax section asking me WHAT was different.....I just pointed at the DV NY. Awesome Mouthpiece...can't say enough GREAT things about it. ONE note- the mouthpiece came with a Rico H..which is FINE with me....but am using a Rovner Platinum right now. The "Jody Jazz Ring LIgature" pictured was not included (and I'm fine with that).
