Staff Review

This is a very flexible mouthpiece! Designed to suit the needs of the contemporary jazz musician who needs a piece that will work in both pop/funk and Jazz situations, and it delivers. Whilst not as full and warm as it's V16 brother, the Java provides a clean focused sound that is easy to push into a brighter, edgier sound whilst also delivering a pleasingly round and soft sound when you hold back. Due to a surprising amount of resistance, there is a lot of space to give it all you have, useful when struggling to be heard in an electric band. This mouthpiece will appeal to those looking for that 'Fusion' style sound or If you just play in several different style situations and don't want to carry a load of mouthpieces around with you.
