OVERVIEW

The JodyJazz DV is the state of the art in saxophone mouthpieces.


n the DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece, nature, science and imagination are combined to create a revolutionary mouthpiece. The DV produces a bigger, fatter sound that is achieved effortlessly with better intonation and response.
The JodyJazz DV is the state of the art in saxophone mouthpieces.
This mouthpiece was created to be the most efficient mouthpiece possible. That means there are lots of harmonics and great projection, without the annoying shrillness that is associated with loud bright mouthpieces.
The DV is an amazing thing to play.
JodyJazz uses a new proprietary CNC facing technology that puts the perfect facing curve on the mouthpiece. This results in absolutely no dead spots in the vibration of the reed, with the notes in all ranges responding equally. It has a husky barrel-chested tone, while being able to sing and soar over the top of any band. Subtoning and low notes are extremely easy and the altissimo is out of this world. Be prepared to have possibly the most fun you ever have had on the saxophone.
What the players are saying
"After playing the Jody Jazz Tenor DV mouthpiece for a few seconds the first thought that came into my head was, 'Oh, so there's my sound!' This piece makes playing fun again. It has a very rich and powerful sound that enables you to play the entire range of the horn, from low Bb through the altissimo with ease. It gives you the freedom that you're looking for in a mouthpiece." Jeff Kashiwa - Native Language Recording Artist
"The DV is amazing. It's brighter, louder and fuller than the ESP-X, without sacrificing any of the ease and control. I thought that nothing could exceed the ESP-X in these terms, but I was wrong. If you play modern styles, you MUST try this mouthpiece." Andy Snitzer - NYC

FEATURES
  • Perfect facing curve
  • Equal response across all registers
  • Excellent projection
  • Complex harmonics
  • Cap, ligature and pouch included

Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Its a great mouthpiece overall. Gives a rapid response very bright. Exactly how description describes the only thing I'm having trouble with is reed and mouthpiece combination I play on a Allora Paris Series Professional alto sax with the Jody Jazz DV 7 and I am currently using Rico plasticover 2 1/2 reeds. I have heard that the vandoren java red is great and La Voz medium hard as well. If anyone can get back to me and help me with what would be best that will be very much appreciated. I have never written a review but I will be checking back here to see y'alls response.

    Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    Excellent mouthpiece. Noticeably brighter and more open than my trusty ol' Meyers 5. Hits the highs and the lows. The whole band asked "hey ... what happened?" Yes, it's expensive, but worth it for me.

      Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I decided to try this mouthpiece because I had 2 Meyer #5 hard rubber mouthpieces go bad after only 2 years and I was looking for something more durable. I first tried it with a couple of my favorite Eastman Venuto 2.5 reeds. The sound was way too shrill / edgy. I had some Vandoren V12 2.5 reeds I tried next. They worked much better. There is a lot to like about this mouthpiece. It is very easy to play and has a nice consistent sound at all volume levels. For myself, in the end, I decided that the sound was too bright even though I use it primarily for playing lead alto in several jazz bands. If you decide to try one of these mouth pieces, I would recommend doing so with a classical / mellow reed like a Vandoren or LaVaz.

        Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

        I'm Jody Espina, Founder, President and designer of the JodyJazz DV Series. The JodyJazz DV Alto is the model I play on alto. The DV Alto is my favorite saxophone mouthpiece of all time for the following reasons: The way it accepts my air as if to say, "Come on in and make yourself comfortable." Which means there's no resistance when I blow. Whatever resistance I want, I get from the reed, so when I want a more airy sound I just go up in reed strength. I love the full rich sound I get, with more bottom in the sound than any other alto piece I know of. And I love the power that I have with it. I'm never left in the dust volume-wise, and when I play softly I don't have to struggle to make it pretty. I can play sweetly without a trace of shrillness. Everyday alto players tell me they can't or don't want to play metal on alto, and everyday I force the DV into their hands and they are blown away. The DV Alto changed my life!

        Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

        I was skeptical. Now I am just amazed. I only needed but about 30 seconds of playing with this mouthpiece to convince myself it was worth every penny. Every note "speaks" from lowest to highest. You will not be disappointed.

        Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

        Oh my goodness.. When I first got this mpc, I couldn't wait to see what all the hype was about. I play on a DV 7 with a size 2 fibracell reed. This thing is so easy to play on! It's free blowing and every note is crisp! Nothing is stuffy or none of that. This thing can turn you from a beginner to a pro (well your sound at least). Everywhere I play with this thing I get noticed. It's worth every single penny. I love this mpc and would recommend it to everyone! Oh and it does give that contemporary sound. Sort of a Gerald Albright type of sound if that's what you're going for!

        Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

        I have been playing professionally since 1967. I have done everything from professional orchestra to professional big bands. For classical playing, I use the Larry Teal mouthpiece. I allows me to produce the best classical sound without challenge. Through the years I have used a Brillhart 3* for big band because it gives me a brighter, edgier sound with more volume - perfect for playing lead alto. Recently, however, with more modern charts, I've struggled trying to keep up with blazing brass sections. I've never felt comfortable with metal mouthpieces, but after reading about the Jody Jazz DV I thought that I would give it a try. For years I've used a metal Brillhart Level Air on Bari, but, I've never liked the "feel" of metal on an alto. Let me tell you, the instant I tried the Jody Jazz DV, I knew that I had found what I was looking for. Bright, easy to play, slight edge - everything that I hoped it would be. I've got a #7 and it's amazing! I know from experience that a mouthpiece that works for one doesn't always work for someone else, but, I recommend that you give it a try. Awesome!

        Jody Jazz DV #8

        from Belém / PA / Brasil

        Site Member

        Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

        Sure, it is the Best mouthpiece ever. I wont talk about beauty. (But, its wonderful) Let's talk about sound. I've used in my life Beechler Bellite Custom #7, Dukoff D6, D7 and D8, Claud Lakey 7*3, Meyer 7MM, Vandoren JJ A95 and others... But, if you are searching to a Bright and Balanced, with a Fat sound and easy altíssimos and low notes, this is the mouthpiece you want. Each cent you will pay, will return in sound to you. And, dont be afraid to buy a number high than the number you use. What i mean to say, is, if you use a #6 mouthpiece, i recommend you to buy a #7 mouthpiece. If you use a #7, buy an #8.

        Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

        As every lead alto sax player should know, out blowing the rest of the band can be hard at times especially if you want to keep good tone. I was looking for a mouthpiece that would supply superb projection, tone, and playability. The Jody Jazz DV was just that. I ordered a size 6 and received it within a week. The mouthpiece immediately blew away all previous mouthpieces I had tried, including Otto link metals and meyer rubbers. The DV gives incredible tone in the middle range and allows you to play freely in the lower and high registers. Finding a right reed for the DV was a challenge but in the end I found that Rico La Voz Mediums are the best. Vandoren Java Red are also acceptable. In conclusion, the quality of this mouthpiece definately outweighs the price and any sax player looking for a good metal should give this a try. Good job Jody Jazz and WWBW.

        Comments about JodyJazz DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

        I am primarily a tenor player, but i like to keep my chops up on all of the saxes like any good reed master should. I am in my fifth year of playing saxophone. I love to play jazz, and funk. This mouthpiece really is the funkiest thing ever made for sax. Its sound is so big!!! I love its bright sound, I am actually in the process of buying one for my tenor as well. Jody Jazz is killer!! If you are thinking about buying this mouthpiece, don't think twice, just DO IT!!!
