What Is the JodyJazz Classic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece?

The JodyJazz Classic Alto Sax mouthpiece is a "free blowing" easy to play mouthpiece that captures the full range of tonal qualities of the instrument. The low register of the saxophone is full, round and strong, while the upper register is warm sounding, and in tune. In addition, the altissimo register responds extremely well on the JodyJazz Classic alto. The mouthpiece has a clean, focused sound with excellent projection, while maintaining extraordinary versatility. Excellent for lead alto, straight ahead jazz playing, and due to it's versatility, the JodyJazz blends nicely with a concert band or saxophone quartet.

Three Goals in Creating the JodyJazz Classic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
  1. To create a free blowing alto saxophone mouthpiece that is extremely versatile and has great altissimo notes.

  2. To offer a square chamber alto sax mouthpiece which gives a more focused sound than a round chamber mouthpiece and to demand and achieve the most rigorous quality control possible.

  3. To make an alto sax mouthpiece that can sound as bright and strong as a metal sax mouthpiece, but costs much less than a metal mouthpiece.

"Free Blowing Wonders" - Jazz Times
JodyJazz Classic Mouthpieces are made of a proprietary polycarbonate alloy with a synthetic rubber mix which is a high tech, expensive material. This is not like ABS plastic or any other kind of plastic material currently used for clarinet and saxophone mouthpieces. In fact the material that makes the JodyJazz Classic mouthpiece is six times more expensive than that used in other plastic mouthpieces. The formula to our material, which is a highly guarded secret, contains a certain amount of synthetic rubber which is a form of plastic that can be molded into parts that feel just like rubber. Because of the addition of the synthetic rubber, JodyJazz Classic Saxophone & Clarinet Mouthpieces, produce the warm overtones that hard rubber mouthpieces can produce while allowing us to use the manufacturing process know as precision injection molding. Besides being able to flawlessly produce the intricate forms and curves of a clarinet or saxophone mouthpiece, injection molding allows us to achieve uniform cooling. As each mouthpiece is molded it is dropped into a huge vat of cool water insuring that each mouthpiece cools at the same rate. Cooling is critical in this type of manufacturing as well as in the manufacturing of hard rubber mouthpieces because if cooling occurs at different temperatures than the mouthpieces will have slightly different dimensions due to shrinkage.

Special Notes on The Classic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece

Every JodyJazz mouthpiece is hand finished to insure the absolute best quality. In addition, each mouthpiece is individually play tested by Jody Espina to insure a perfect seal with the reed and proper response throughout the range of the saxophone.

The model name, "Classic", does not mean that this mouthpiece is for Classical Music. When Jody first started making mouthpieces, this was the first and only model that he had, so it was just called the JodyJazz. Once he created the next model which was the ESP, the first mouthpiece needed a model name. It was actually a customer who named the mouthpiece. He said to Jody, "Not the ESP, but your "Classic" model.

JodyJazz Classic Alto Sax Mouthpiece Reviews
"Jody, Just wanted to thank you for your great customer service. I received my Alto Classic mouth piece today, and have been playing it all evening. So far, it is just fantastic, I really like how easy it plays, and how easy it allows me to hit the high notes, with such clarity. Thanks once again for such a quality product and quality service. "
Sincerely
-Carry Buttle

"Jody, I have to thank you for the great service. I had a chance to play a small gig with my new mouthpiece and it performed great. The lows were very thick and the highs cut through all of the electric stuff on stage. WOW... It also is super easy to play. I just have a generic horn and the notes were clean and in tune. The mouthpiece responded to even the smallest amount of 'lip' allowing me to give my solos better projection and emphasis. "
THANKS!!!
