Get a Comfortable Feel and an Unsurpassed Sound with the JodyJazz Hard Rubber Custom Dark Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece

The HR* Custom Dark Series is JodyJazz's premium line of hard rubber saxophone mouthpieces, where the goal was to make the most beautiful sounding and playing pieces that they possibly could. As alto saxophone players, they know there are often a lot of unpleasant highs in the sound, especially on the higher notes. With the HR* Custom Dark alto, JodyJazz retained the fun of playing a great alto mouthpiece while taking all the unpleasant highs off.  In order to achieve this goal, they have started with the finest material used in hard rubber mouthpieces today, which is their proprietary Chedeville® Rubber. CHR (Chedeville Rubber) is a softer purer formula than regular standard hard rubber. This rubber imparts a rich warm sound.

The large round chamber and bore give this mouthpiece a mellow, warm, beautiful sound. Next they created a design that includes rounded sidewalls that add complexity or what Jody Espina calls ”moonglow”, on top of the core sound. The thick heavy gold plated brass band on the shank boosts the amount of harmonics in the sound. The facing curve and baffle on the HR* Custom Dark are what truly make the mouthpiece a joy to play. At JodyJazz, they have applied their twenty years of making mouthpieces on these two key components of a mouthpiece, with a combination of science, technology and old fashioned made-by-hand craftsmanship.
