    Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    I've owned this mouthpiece in a 7 tip opening for the past 5-6 years. During that time I've played it as both a lead and section player in big band settings, and in combo work. Overall it has been a versatile piece that can blend with any section. Response was generally not a problem and tone was a nice balance of warm and bright.

    I did find it difficult to project over an ensemble at times. The table also recently warped and forces me to purchase another mouthpiece. For that reason alone, I won't be purchasing another JodyJazz HR.

    A Nice Balance Between Classic & Contemporary Sound

      Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      Rich & versatile tone -- a quality piece with a precision finish. The Jody Jazz HR* 6* is one of several mouthpieces I tried during the past couple months. In my search, I tested both tenor & alto pieces and found them to offer an elegant and full sound with crisp articulation and moderate resistance.

      These hard rubber mouthpieces are professional quality and show fine workmanship. The sonic properties are on par with any of the insanely expensive boutique mouthpieces. The HR* is quite easy to play and should meet the needs of many if not most contemporary players.

      I find the Jody Jazz HR* sound is a compromise between the classic dark sonic qualities of the 1940-1950 sax giants and the more modern, bright and out-front sound desired by many of today's musicians. It's a very versatile piece that offers an easily shaped tone that should fit well with many genres of contemporary music.

      I seriously considered the Jody Jazz pieces, but went with the more mellow and subdued qualities offered by the standard Meyer mouthpieces. I was looking for that old school sound and found it with the Meyer. In your own mouthpiece quest, I'd recommend giving the Jody Jazz HR* a serious try. A solid piece at a reasonable price.

      Great Mouthpiece

      Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      This mouthpiece is a really good jazz mouthpiece! It has a nice big tone that I can only describe as blank- but it can be easily shaped into whatever you need! It's really easy to get a bright, swingin' tone out of this mouthpiece just as it is easy to get a wonderful smooth ballad sound. I've personally had a bit of work done on mine, but even before that the mouthpiece was great. Good for a semi-experienced student all the way up through professional levels- I got this mouthpiece in junior high and play gigs on it in high school just fine.

      GREAT!

      Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I got this mouthpiece in 6 and compared it to a Meyer and Otto Link Tone Edge (both 6) but this piece was the best of them. The Meyer had too much resistance and the super high and low didn't come out well. The Otto Link wasn't as bright and had indentation issues. So I went with the Jody Jazz and I LOVE IT! I use Vandoran ZZs 3s.

      Lovely warm tone and easy to play

      Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      This mouthpiece plays beautifully. And Ive always recommended this mouthpiece to my students. I use the model 6 with vandoren ZZ reeds. Its altissmo plays superbly with no effort and great tone that goes above and beyond my expectations. Its low range also comes out clearly. This mouthpiece is extremely free blowing making it easy to play. Its material is high quality and gives a great jazzy warm tone. This mouthpiece doesnt have a bright tone but rather a mellowy jazzy sound. Overall you should get this mouthpiece.

      Freakin Awesome!!

      Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I've been playing a Meyer for about two years. After a while, i was sick of the same jazz tone most people have. After lots and lots of research, this mouthpiece came on top. First of all, the quality of these mouthpieces are superb. The rubber they use for these mouthpieces is significantly different than most mouthpieces. 2. These mouthpieces have a different sound to them then what you'd get with most. 3. These mouthpieces get an 8.5 out of 10 on altissimo. (The altissimo is easier on this than my Vandoren Optimum!) They pop out so easily. For any jazz mouthpiece with easy altissimo is the one for me. DISCLAIMER!!: These mouthpieces require some serious chops. I was usually playing on ZZ 3's forever. This mouthpiece however, made me move down to the 2 1/2's. I was playing on blue box 3's which aquire some chop power already. --Overall this mouthpiece has an awesome sound, awesome looks, and awesome altissimo. Great for Big Band music because this mouthpiece isn't too bright! This mouthpiece is also the best bang for its buck. 10-10 A must get

      Fantastic Mouthpiece!

      Comments about JodyJazz HR* Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      The JodyJazz HR* Alto mouthpiece is one of the most versatile pieces I've had the opportunity to play. It's at home in virtually any style of music other than classical/concert band. (And many players might find it suitable even for that!) It has a nice core sound that can be shaped into virtually any sax tone you can think of. Especially when compared with the other fine pieces that JodyJazz puts out, the HR* is the best bang for the buck I've found in an alto mouthpiece.
