The Jody Jazz DV NY produces a darker, less bright tone than the more contemporary sound of the DV. The deep baffle/chamber design of the DV NY produces a beautiful Classic Jazz Tenor sound reminiscent of the masters of the 50’s and 60’s. While having slightly more resistance than the DV, the DV NY is considered a very free blowing 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. This Jody Jazz mouthpiece is based on our popular DV model but has several modifications, the most significant being a deep chamber. Each Jody Jazz mouthpiece is hand-finished and 24k gold plated to provide the most effortless playing experience possible.
The facing curve is CNC machined to ensure it is perfectly formed every time, resulting in no dead spots in the vibration of the reed.
The moving sound wave inside of the mouthpiece is now able to strike the vibrating reed above the bore of the mouthpiece instead of the mouthpiece material that is usually there. The effect is similar to a moving ball striking a moving bat.
