 FREE BLOWING, EASY TO PLAY, AND EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE

There is no doubt that Jody Espina knew exactly what he was doing when designing this mouthpiece. His HR is something of a modern classic. There’s a really nice warm, rounded and smooth sound, a nice free blowing feel with great consistency throughout the range of the sax. On top of that, it also responds extremely well when pushed, delivering bigger and better projection than the vast majority of ebonites. The HR* is aimed at professionals and students who are after a well-made and versatile mouthpiece without breaking the bank. For its price, it’s an absolute bargain! 

Please note: This mouthpiece is slightly slimmer than standard baritone mouthpieces. Therefore if you are wanting to purchase a ligature to fit it, we recommend one designed for hard rubber tenor mouthpieces, such as the Rovner Dark "2R".

 Special Notes on The HR* Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece

Expect the JodyJazz HR* Baritone 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 Baritone mouthpieces.

For example: For Classical playing try #5 model with a relatively hard reed.

For a sound similar to Gerry Mulligan use a HR* 6 or 7 with a medium strength reed. Play softly and you will hear that beautiful sound with a hint of air in it.

For a sound more like Ronnie Cuber try a 7, 8 or 9 with a brighter reed, like a good synthetic or a Rico Plasticover, to get that nice intensity to 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.)

Staff Review

If you're after a good all round Baritone piece that can do it all, this is it! A nice free and easy response with just the right level of resistance, and the comfortable feel of hard rubber! While it may not carry the same level of power as other mouthpieces in the JodyJazz range (such as the Jet, Super Jet, or DV), the HR* excels in its versatility. I could easily see this piece fitting into a jazz or big band situation, just as well as in a concert wind band or sax quartet - Oren Gurney (oren@sax.co.uk)
