"The new DV New York models have arrived from Jody Jazz and as you would expect stand out as an impressive mouthpiece choice for your tenor sax.

The difference between the DV and the DV NY is most noticeable in the baffle; this is the metal ledge that leads from the mouthpiece tip before dropping in to the chamber. On the NY this is very low indeed, meaning that the 'drop' into the main chamber is not nearly as severe. This gives the NY a slightly less aggressive projection than the standard DV - but nevertheless retains a very big tone. Sub tones seem to be naturally warmer with the NY and the top notes cut very clearly. I would say there is a flexibility with this mouthpiece that is perhaps missing from some of the other, more raucous, top end mouthpieces. A very good all rounder which promises a maturation of tone." - Will, sax.co.uk 

What Is the DV Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece?

Jody Espina has introduced the concept of Golden Section Proportions to the art of high end saxophone mouthpiece design. This perfect chamber/bore/facing combination will result in an extraordinary playing experience for you.

Effortless Power & Beauty 

Here, nature, science and imagination combine to create a revolutionary new saxophone mouthpiece. The 24kt Gold Plated JodyJazz DV Alto sax mouthpiece (U.S. Patent No. 7,470,844) uses proportions and principles found in nature. For the most effortless playing experience of your life, we invite you to try the DV alto sax mouthpiece.

Three Goals in Creating the DV Series of Saxophone Mouthpieces

1. To create the most efficient mouthpiece possible. That means that there are more harmonics present in the sound and therefore the projection of this alto sax mouthpiece is huge.

2. To eliminate the annoying shrillness that is associated with loud bright alto saxophone mouthpieces. 

3. To have a big fat midrange and bottom end that has never been present before in an alto mouthpiece with strong projection.

 

DV Vs DV NY - How are they different?

Both mouthpieces have a full resonant sound due to the secondary window. The DV will have more projection and be brighter due to the raised floor of the chamber while the DV NY will have a more traditional Jazz sound and projection due to the deep full chamber. We often recommend trying both mouthpieces if you are not sure which model would suit you.

Testimonials From JodyJazz Artist Endorsers

"The day I first played JodyJazz DV Saxophone Mouthpieces I became instantly converted. No other sax mouthpieces can match them!"

Tom Scott 

"Jody,I've been playing the mouthpiece a lot and using it on the current tour through Europe with Arturo Sandoval. "The mouthpiece is amazing. The DV Tenor sax mouthpiece plays beautifully from top to bottom, loud and soft. I am really having fun playing again. AMAZING piece. Arturo loves it and audiences seem to really dig the sound. All the best,"

Ed Calle

"After playing the Jody Jazz Tenor DV mouthpiece for a few seconds the first thought that came into my head was, "Oh, so there's my sound!" This piece makes playing fun again."

Jeff Kashiwa

 

"The DV is amazing. If you play modern styles, you MUST try this mouthpiece."

Andy Snitzer

 

"My JodyJazz DV tenor mouthpiece has a strong, fast response, with a modern sound, yet I can still get a warm subtone quality whenever I want. Easy to blow with a very focused tone, the DV, also has a third dimension to the sound that I've never encountered in any mouthpiece before. I couldn't be more happy. Way to go Jody! "

Ada Rovatti

"The Jody Jazz Tenor DV is one of the most impressive saxophone mouthpieces I've ever played. The DV has amazing capabilities in terms of projection and dynamic range, yet it is highly sensitive. I find it extremely easy to articulate and express myself throughout the entire range of the horn. The DV mouthpiece is a highly significant innovation in the saxophone world, plus it's really fun to play. "

Laura Dreyer 

"Jody, Gotta tell you I love this DV tenor mouthpiece. It's a definite keeper. What a full sound! Adds a lot of color and definition to my tone. I was really surprised upon seeing the high baffle and extended window how nice of a sound it got, without being shrill or exhibiting harsh overtones. I am impressed with how it can be used for about any style. It can be used for nice lush subtones, and then can be pushed to honk if needed with no tone quality being sacrificed. "
