This 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.

IÆm a professional sax player in Las Vegas and IÆm writing to say how thrilled I am with my Jody Jazz HR7* tenor mouthpiece. IÆve been searching for years for a piece that would translate the sound I heard in my head to the real world. IÆve 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 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.

    This Mouthpiece deserves an opportunity to try

    Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    First off, thank you for taking the time to read the reviews on the Jody Jazz HR mouthpieces. The products that his small team make are worthy of the top seller icons above almost all of their pieces. I am reviewing a Jody Jazz HR 7* Setup Yamaha YTS 62iii, 62 Neck, Rico Royal 2.5 and a Rovner MK3 ligature (note--The Rico Ligature that comes with the piece is a good ligature. I just wanted to speak to my review with my current setup for this review). The mouthpiece is a free blowing mouthpiece and has much less resistance than a standard Yamaha stock mouthpiece, but has more resistance than say a DV series. If you have used a tighter mouthpiece (I mainly use a DV 7* and it fits tighter on the neck) and your neck has compression on the cork, you may have need to make some adjustments or recork the neck. I really like the flexibility of the sound of this piece, I can accommodate many applications with this mouthpiece. I can play Jazz, contemporary, and classical with this mouthpiece as it has the right blend of flexibility and control due to the inner chamber design. I also took the time to measure the rails and opening and I must say that the hand finishing on this product and QC that the Jody Jazz team puts into each piece is amazing as the mouthpiece is perfect to specifications. My main application for this mouthpiece is in education. I volunteer at my sons school with beginning band class. My focus is on the woodwind students. I want to show them techniques and teach them tone quality, correct embouchure with a setup that is similar to theirs. My DV is too bright to be effective in this setting, but this mouthpiece fits right in to the learning environment. I highly recommend that if you have a promising student saxophonist, the right gear is very important as you want the student fighting the challenges of new music and not their horn. While I will admit that Jody Jazz comes with a steep price tag for a HR mouthpiece, I would encourage that you consider one anyway as it is a piece that can honestly become the last mouthpiece you or your student may ever need. You can also buy with confidence as WWBW has exceptional customer service and return policy. I would recommend if you trial the piece you take extra care on putting the ligature on and use a bite pad so you don't scratch it and can return for a full refund.

    Great for the Rollins sound

    By

    Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    I was honestly looking for a mouthpiece that could put my sound more in the direction of Dexter Gordon. I heard the Jody Jazz HR was a contender in the vintage sound category, so I picked one up noticing the affordable price. I picked up a 7* and it played straight out of the box. This is the perfect mouthpiece for a Sonny Rollins type sound. Medium bright with the ease of sub-tone. I gigged with it quite a few times and nearly fell in love it. My only complaint is that it didn't go towards the sound I wanted. I know many say it's you not the equipment. I agree with that to an extent. If you give pepper Adams a Meyer instead of Berg it will be harder for him to achieve that hard bop tone. Mouthpieces don't change your sound it more or less makes achieving one easier or harder. I will keep this mouthpiece as a backup or alternative, but in the meantime I think I'll check out the new vintage Otto Link to get that Dexter sound.

    Great Mouthpiece for Tone Quality

    By 

    from Perkasie, PA

    Site Member

    Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    I was using a Selmer MP before this JJ. I had an Alto JJ mouthpiece before, so I figured why not try the JJ HR on the Tenor. Wow! So for those trying to decide, this thing is great selection. The JJ HR has great Tone over my Selmer MP. It is a little brighter in tone, but really brings out the Tenor Sax sound. I found the intonation perfect and had the ease to adjust pitch, vibrato and volume over the Selmer. If your looking for a MP you can use for Classic Symphonic Band, Concert of even Jazz, this one is for you. You get full control of your tone with this one. For Beginner to Intermediate, I would suggest the 5*, and intermediate to strong, a 6* or 7*. Check with your teacher. The facing easily support 2, 2.5, 3 v16 Reeds. This is a decent MP! Nice Job on this one! A little pricey, but if you have to choose one for all styles, it's worth it.

    This mouthpiece is extremely versatile. I recently made the switch from an Otto Link metal 6*, and this one played well right out of the box, first one i tried!! I use it to play my jazz gigs as well as my pit orchestra gigs. It's also a very affordable choice, especially among the Jody Jazz mouthpieces. Highly recommended for anyone looked to make a switch!

    A good choice

    Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    I now have in my collection 3 rather good mouthpieces. I have the 8* Jody Jazz HR, an 8* Otto Link HR and a 10* Otto Link new York Metal. Each differs a bit. For sheer projection the metal is best. Of the two HRs the Jody Jazz has the better control but the Otto Link is just slightly smoother in tone. The Jody Jazz is probably the best crafted as it will give a little better attack on low notes and produces a consistant tone across the whole register. it looks like tradeoff is the name of the game when choosing mouthpieces. Don't be afraid to buy the Jody Jazz. It is a good addition to any collection. I am using it more than the others at least for the time being.

    Good Piece, doesn't fit on all necks

    from Grantham, PA

    Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    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.

    Remarkable sound on my Buescher C-Mel

    Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    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.
