What is the DV NY Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The DV NY for Tenor Sax will appeal to the Straight Ahead
player looking for the best playing and sounding mouthpiece
that he or she can find. The mouthpiece is based on our popular
DV model but has several modifications, the most significant being
a deep chamber. All tests with players have been very positive and
we've had great response from "Link" players. And most importantly
I am completely satisfied and in love with the mouthpiece. The DV NY
occupies a similar place as the ESP and we think that players who like a
wider mouthpiece in the mouth, and a more spread sound will choose the
DV NY. Players who like more of a Berg Larsen focused sound and a thinner
profile piece may prefer the ESP.
Effortless Vintage Sound
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.
The DV NY produces a darker, less bright tone than the contemporary sound of the DV.
The deep baffle/chamber design of the DV NY produce a beautiful Classic Jazz Tenor
sound reminiscent of the masters of the 50’s and 60’s.
Three Goals in Creating the DV NY Saxophone Mouthpieces
- To create the most efficient mouthpiece possible. That means that
there is no stuffiness and little resistance.
- To emulate the sound of the Classic 50’s and 60’s metal tenor sax mouthpieces, while giving the sound an extra fatness from the secondary window.
- To produce the most beautiful tone on any JodyJazz mouthpiece so far.

JodyJazz DV NY Tenor Sax Mouthpiece Available Tip Openings
The most popular tip opening range will be 7*, 8*. Players seem to prefer a size
larger than what they would comparably play on a Link, for example, due to the relatively
free blowing nature of the DV NY.
6 = .090 7 = .100 7* = .105
8* = .115 9* = .125 10* = .135

About the patch on the DV NY:
The beak of this mouthpiece is thin which allows for more
vibration and contributes to the spread of the sound or what I call sound diffusion.
A thin beak does not allow us to put a patch the way the DV has. We provide a a
clear patch which feels very comfortable. For those of you who think that this
may be a problem, I ask you to try the piece so that you can see for yourself.
Also Available for purchase is our proprietary JodyJazz "Ring" Ligature
for more info.
I understand that there may be a backorder on these mouthpieces. Why do we have to wait to buy one of these pieces.

"Dream Come True"
To create the most efficient mouthpiece possible while emulating the sound
of the Classic 50's and 60's metal tenor sax mouthpieces. That means that
a beautiful, rich tenor sax tone is able to be produced with less effort
than on previous mouthpieces.
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 and can sing sweetly and beautifully. Sub toning
and low notes are extremely easy and the altissimo is out of this world.
Intonation is spot on. Be prepared to be inspired by your tone.
Players who now or in the past have played Otto Link, Guardala Crescent,
Dukoff Hollywood, or any of the darker classic mouthpieces out there will
be sure to love The DV NY. This is not just another straight-ahead saxophone
mouthpiece. There will be noticeable differences and improvements.
I have found that many jazz saxophone players are playing saxophone mouthpieces
that are stuffy and have a high degree of resistance. Also low notes can be more
difficult to play on these older mouthpieces.
We have had many converts who were playing the most popular Jazz saxophone
mouthpieces and who 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 and still retain a beautiful full warm tone.
The DV NY is manufactured on the most sophisticated computer controlled Lathes
and Mills, yet the DV NY benefits from a high degree of hand finishing. The
attention to detail in design and finishing given to the DV NY results in a stunning
work of art that plays like a dream come true.
