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.
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.)
