I bought this mouthpiece a while back. I have the A75 model, and it takes a good embouchure to get good sound out of it. Its open enough at the tip to really make some noise, but the best thing about that is that it sounds really terrific. Its very very bright, sometimes a bit too bright on the highest notes in the natural range. Altissimo works well for me on this piece, probably because of the mad bright overtones. I play lead alto in a big band and it serves me well when I need to lead the section. Articulation is easy and precise, projection is so good that the horn sounds amped. Intonation is on par with most of the better jazz mouthpieces. Really kicks with Alexander Superial reeds, but what doesn't? Does pretty well with Java reeds too. Too hard of a reed makes it more difficult to have a good dynamic range, but it can whisper and scream with a free-blowing reed like a Java or Superial. The only problem I've had with this piece is that it can get to chirping a lot if your reeds aren't just right or if you're weak in the lips from playing for a long time or from inexperience.
I've had a Jumbo Java for the past year, I didn't test it out before I got it, I just bought one because it sounded like what I wanted. Who can resist a metal sound with a rubber feel?
I bought it, and it's exactly as it says, the biggest bore, and the fattest chamber! Most ligatures don't even fit it. I had trouble making a tone out of it at first, I mean moving from a Selmer C* to this we're talking mega chamber difference. It wasn't until I started playing a link on my tenor did I really start fully filling the chamber on my A35 Jumbo Java (and I had to drop to a 2.5 size reed (from 3.5)).
Here's the problem. I thought I controlled this mpce. Last week I did a gig and had it recorded. When I went back and listened to it, I realized my tone was all over the place. Generally, my high register sounded absolutely fantastic.... My lower register however sounded crap. Even my altissimo C's and D's were clear.
In conclusion, I think my verdict for this MPC is that it's really good as a solo mouthpiece. The tone you get will never blend with anyone else. It's a very loud mouthpiece, however, if this is what you want then you'll have to put in alot of work to balance out the sound.
I just test drove the A35. Blew every $400 mouthpiece I've owned and played out the door. If you want a mouthpiece that can be extremely sensitive and then knock the highlights out of the guitar players hair with volume this is the one. The sound and intonation quality did not vary at any dynamic level. The sound is bright, rich and full of overtones. Definitely a soloist mouthpiece, I wouldn't personally use it in a section of saxes because it will not fit in with the classic New York Meyer crew. This is a modern rich sounding mouthpiece in hard rubber that will have the guys playing metal mouthpieces looking at you asking how is that possible. From the low Bb through the altissimo it did not miss a beat and I only played on it for my first time. It will be exciting to see what its capable of as I explore the mouthpieces versatility. For a hundred dollars every sax player looking for that edge in a modern saxophone world should just give it a try.
I bought the Jumbo Java A45 about two to three years ago and it is by far the best mouthpiece I've ever had. It is as close to a metal mouthpiece as you can get without buying a metal mouthpiece, it has a large barrel with a open tip for a loud rich sound, then pairing it with Vandoren's ZZ Series Reeds (3)which are extremely flexible has given me a very smooth and rich sound.
I highly recommend this product.
I switched from metal Link 7* to the A35 on my alto 10 years ago and have played it since. Man, this is one of the best HR's out there and the price is right too. Of course, there are some vintage ones you can't beat (Selmer Soloist, old Meyer etc), but for this price it's one of the best. Though I would not recommend this piece for beginners as it may be hard to control the tone- it's huge. As for me- I love it!!!
