What is the HR* Tenor 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 tenor 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 meticulously hand finished and play tested. Three Goals in Creating the HR* Series of Saxophone Mouthpieces To offer the most traditional style of jazz saxophone mouthpiece: round chamber hard rubber, and demand and obtain the most rigorous quality control possible. To create a free blowing 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* Tenor Sax Mouthpiece Available Tip Openings C* = .080 5* = .085 6* = .095 7 = .100 7* = .105 8 = .110 8* = .115 9* = .125 10* = .135 "Versatility"
The HR* tenor sax mouthpiece 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 Otto Link, Meyer, 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 tenor sax mouthpiece for many years are in need of a replacement (due to waer 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 tenor mouthpieces. Special Notes on The HR* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
Expect the JodyJazz HR* tenor sax mouthpiece to play just slightly brighter than traditional Otto Links and Meyers. This is due to the slightly smaller chamber. Many different sounds are possible on the JodyJazz HR* hard rubber tenor mouthpieces. For example: For Classical playing try our C* or 5* model with a relatively hard reed.
For a sound similar to Stan Getz use a HR* 5*, 6* or 7 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 Sonny Rollins us a 6*, 7*, or 8* 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* Tenor Saxophone Reviews "My JodyJazz HR* 10* Hard Rubber is ever changing in the most positive sense, that I have ever experienced. This is what I look for in a good mouthpiece....buy one now!" -George Garzone " This mouthpiece speaks to me loud, fat and clear. Not long after buying the tenor piece I replaced my alto refaced link with the JodyJazz HR* Alto and the JodyJazz ESP Bari Gold also. There is no question, that these mouthpieces were created with a vision. "
