Mouthpiece Sax Alto Jody Jazz HR* 5M

More Information

What Is the HR* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece? The HR* is a hard rubber saxophone mouthpiece aimed at professionals and students looking for a traditional versatile mouthpiece. High quality control standards, a beautiful warm sound and a nice free blowing feel make these new mouthpieces amazing players. We feel that this mouthpiece may be the best hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpiece on the market. Warmth & Beauty I get these blanks from a source in Germany and the Hard Rubber has the look, feel and sound of vintage hard Rubber sax mouthpieces that make some of the most sought after mouthpieces. The mouthpieces are faced on a special facing machine and then meticoulously hand finished and play tested. Three Goals in Creating the HR* Series of Saxophone Mouthpieces To offer the most tradtional style of jazz saxophone mouthpiece: round chamber hard rubber, and demand and obtain the most rigourous quality control possible. To create a freeblowing hard rubber mouthpiece that allows the lowest and highest notes to speak with equal ease. To make a hard rubber sax mouthpiece that can sound beautiful, but also give good strong projection when necessary.JodyJazz HR* Alto Sax Mouthpiece Available Tip Openings C* = .066 5M = .072 6M = .078 7M = .083 8M = .090 9M = .100 "Versatility" The HR* alto is a round chamber mouthpiece which provides a round sound in contrast to a more focused sound which a square chamber provides. This allows the HR* to sound very pretty and the medium chamber allows the piece to have very good projection when pushed. Players who now or in the past have played Meyer, Otto Link, Bari, Vandoren, Yanigisawa, or any of the straight ahead hard rubber Jazz mouthpieces out there will be sure to love The JodyJazz HR*. The differences come from our particular facing curve, the exact size and shape of the chamber and our commitment to quality control.I have found that many players who have been playing a hard rubber alto sax mouthpiece for many years are in need of a replacement ( due to wear and tear) and do not know where to turn. We have had many many converts who came from playing the most popular hard rubber Jazz pieces. These players are almost always surprised at the quality and consistency of JodyJazz hard rubber alto mouthpieces.Special Notes on The HR* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece Expect the JodyJazz HR* alto saxophone mouthpiece to play just slightly brighter than traditional Meyers and Otto Links. This is due to the slightly smaller chamber. Many different sounds are possible on the JodyJazz HR* hard rubber alto mouthpieces. For example: For Classical playing try our C* or 5M model with a relatively hard reed.For a sound similar to Paul Desmond use a HR* 5M or 6M with a harder reed than you might normally use. Play softly and you will hear that beautiful sound with a hint of air it. For a sound more like Cannonball Adderly use a 5M, 6M, or 7 with a softer reed to get that nice jazzy buzz in the sound. (These are just the broadest suggestions. The real answer about sound is for you to experiment and find out what works for you.) HR* Alto Saxophone Reviews " The JodyJazz HR* mouthpieces that I use on both alto and tenor sax are the epitome of "complete" for the type of playing that I do. The versatility that I'm called to perform, and hence demand of my mouthpieces -- everything from straight ahead jazz and screaming R&B to classical symphony pops -- is comfortably apparent through the effortlessness I experience with your mouthpieces. " -Wally West " Thanks Jody. After 8 years on my Meyer 7, it took me about 10 minutes to switch to your HR* 6. Beautiful sound, terrific response, just everything I'm looking for. I'm definitely recommending it to anyone I play with and teach " -Colin Mason
