JodyJazz HR* Custom Dark - Alto Sax Mouthpiece


The HR* Custom Dark is Jody Jazz's more traditional option, offering darker tones and a smoother more silky sound. As the alto can sometimes be overbearing and shrill in areas, the custom dark really helps soften the sound allowing it to sit in a jazz setting more seamlessly. The rollover baffle is still present in the mouthpiece, but the large chamber really compliments the mouthpiece well. A great jazz mouthpiece!

The JodyJazz HR* Custom dark uses the finest material used in hard rubber mouthpieces today - Jody's proprietary Chedeville® Rubber. CHR (Chedeville Rubber) is a softer purer formula than regular standard hard rubber. This rubber imparts a rich warm sound.

HR star CUSTOM DARK Alto Bore

A large round chamber puts the timbre in a warm dark zone and the thick heavy gold plated brass band on the shank boosts the number of harmonics in the sound.

HR star CUSTOM DARK Alto Baffle

The facing curve and baffle on the HR* CUSTOM DARK are what truly make the mouthpiece a joy to play. We have applied our twenty years of making mouthpieces on these two key components of a mouthpiece, with a combination of science, technology, and old-fashioned made by hand craftsmanship.
