What Is the ESP Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The JodyJazz ESP is a 24kt Gold-Plated metal Baritone saxophone mouthpiece
with flawless workmanship. The workmanship is evident in the beautiful thin side and tip rails
and hand cut baffles. This metal sax mouthpiece is CNC machined from a solid bar of the finest
virgin brass, meaning no seams! The ESP is completely hand faced.
Classic Straight-Ahead Sound
The chamber is big and fat, and the sound is unusually full. Compared to
many of the high baffle metal sax mouthpieces, the JodyJazz ESP Baritone will deliver a
round full sound with more bottom end without sacrificing high end or ease of playing.
Three Goals in Creating the ESP Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece
- To create a metal bari sax mouthpiece that has a deep chamber yet does not play stuffy.
- To give the mouthpiece the ability to play modern styles when the removable baffle is inserted in the
mouthpiece and traditional styles when the removable baffle is out of the mouthpiece.
- To make a metal saxophone mouthpiece with a slimmer outer shape and without a duckbill
beak. This shape is more comfortable for some players.

From Jody Espina
The ESP for Baritone Sax will appeal to the Straight Ahead
player looking for the best playing and sounding mouthpiece
that he or she can find. The ESP
occupies a similar place as the DV NY. Players who like more of a Berg Larsen focused sound and a thinner
profile piece may prefer the ESP. I believe that the JodyJazz ESP is a metal Baritone saxophone
mouthpiece for the future that takes the best from the past.
The ESP Baritone Saxophone mouthpiece is a saxophone mouthpiece for everyone. Traditional Jazz players will
find a warm, round sounding piece that can produce the sounds of Gerry Mulligan, Harry Carney and Pepper
Adams. Players looking for a more contemporary sound will love this saxophone mouthpiece with the spoiler
in. You will have more projection/volume and a bright crisp clean sound. This combination can easily produce
the contemporary sounds of Tom Scott, Nick Brignola, 'Doc' Kupka of Tower of Power, etc.
The ESP Baritone sax mouthpiece has straight sidewalls and a chamber shape that is reminiscent of
the bullet chamber. This combination seems to help players who are seeking more focus to their tone, yet
are not seeking a bright tone.
The removable baffle with it's 24kt Gold Plated secondary reed makes the ESP one of the most versatile
metal mouthpieces in the world. Dark, husky and warm without the baffle, this metal sax mouthpiece is
brighter, louder and still warm with it in. If you can think it, the ESP can play it.
