What Is the JodyJazz Classic Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The JodyJazz Classic Tenor 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 Tenor. The mouthpiece has a clean, focused sound with excellent projection, while maintaining extraordinary versatility. Excellent for lead tenor, 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 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
  1. To create a free blowing tenor saxophone mouthpiece that is extremely versatile and has great altissimo notes.

  2. To offer a square chamber tenor 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 a tenor 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 Tenor 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 Tenor Sax Mouthpiece Reviews
"Hi Jody
I just wanted to let you know the mouthpiece arrived safely a few weeks ago. I was using a Famous Mouthpiece 95, and so I like a bright sound, but the Classic is better is so many ways. Easier to blow, rounder tone, greater dynamic range, more forgiving, and in short: I love it. "
Thanks

" I got a JJ Tenor Classic 7 from Music123.com a while back. I might add I have it on a King Super 20 Silversonic tenor & it just roars! I don't know what voodoo you guys do, but it's amazing. I may have to spring for one for my soprano before long. Thanks, again!!!!! "
