What Is the DV Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece?

end saxophone mouthpiece design. This perfect chamber/bore/facing combination will result
in an extraordinary playing experience for you.
Effortless Power & Beauty
Here, nature, science and imagination combine to create a
revolutionary new saxophone mouthpiece. Jody Espina has designed the
JodyJazz DV (U.S. Patent No. 7,470,844) using proportions and principles
found in nature. For the most effortless playing experience of your
life we invite you to try the DV.
Three Goals in Creating the DV Series of Saxophone Mouthpieces
To create the most efficient sax mouthpiece possible. That means
that there are more harmonics present in the sound and therefore
the projection of this Soprano sax mouthpiece is huge.
To eliminate the annoying shrillness that is associated with loud bright soprano
To have a big fat midrange and bottom end that has never
been present before in a soprano sax mouthpiece with strong projection.

"Dream Come True"
The new facing curve results in absolutely no dead spots in the
vibration of the reed. In other words all notes in all ranges
respond equally. This Metal Soprano sax mouthpiece has a warm
tone while being able to sing and soar over the top of any band. Sub toning
and low notes are extremely easy and
Intonation is spot on. To my knowledge, there is no other soprano saxophone mouthpiece that blows like the DV. Most soprano sax mouthpieces have back pressure when play them but the DV soprano will let you play it like your alto or tenor. Be prepared to have possibly the most fun you ever
have had on the saxophone.
Players who now or in the past have played Guardala, Dukoff, Beechler, Jumbo Java,
SR Tech, Vandoren V16, Yanigisawa, or any of the bright mouthpieces out there
will be sure to love The DV. This is not just another bright mouthpiece.
There will be noticeable differences and improvements.
I have found that many straight ahead jazz players who tend to
favor mouthpieces that are just a little brighter than most
mainstream dark mouthpieces have a very high chance of making the
DV their new Soprano sax mouthpiece. We have had many many converts
who came from playing the most popular hard rubber Jazz piece.
These players almost always think that they won't like a metal
Soprano mouthpiece and they are surprised everytime.
All saxophone players are amazed to find a saxophone mouthpiece that
works so efficiently, where the articulation is clean and one
can easily go from low to high and vice versa.
The DV is manufactured on the most sophisticated computer controlled
Lathes and Mills, yet the DV benefits from a high degree of hand
finishing. The attention to detail in design and finishing given to
the DV results in a stunning work of art that plays like a dream
