What Is the DV Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece?
Jody Espina has introduced the concept of Golden Section Proportions to the art of high
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.
The 24kt Gold Plated JodyJazz DV Tenor sax mouthpiece (U.S. Patent No. 7,470,844) uses proportions and principles
found in nature. For the most effortless playing experience of your life, we invite you to try the DV
tenor sax mouthpiece.
Three Goals in Creating the DV Series of Saxophone Mouthpieces
To create the most efficient mouthpiece possible. That means that
there are more harmonics present in the sound and therefore the
projection of this tenor sax mouthpiece is huge.
To eliminate the annoying shrillness that is associated
with loud bright tenor saxophone mouthpieces.
To have a big fat midrange and bottom end that has never been
present before in a tenor 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 tenor sax mouthpiece has a
husky barrel-chested tone while being able to sing and soar over the top of any band. Sub
toning and low notes are extremely easy and the altissimo is out of this world. Intonation
is spot on. 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 tenor 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 tenor mouthpiece
and they are surprised every time.
All saxophone players are amazed to find a tenor 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 tenor 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 come true.
I understand that there may be a backorder on these mouthpieces. Why do we have to wait to buy one of these pieces.

Special Notes on The DV Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
Due to the free blowing nature of the
DV tenor and all the DV's , be prepared to use a harder reed than
you normally do. This may or may not be the case for you. The great
benefit of this is that a harder reed lasts longer and a harder reed
helps the altissimo range. For this same reason, you may want to try
a slightly more open tip than normal. For example, Otto Link # 7 players,
will usually play a DV 7*.
