JodyJazz HR* Custom Dark Mouthpiece - Soprano
“In designing the HR* CUSTOM DARK Soprano, I played many of the classic Jazz soprano mouthpieces, but I couldn’t find anything with the warmth and darkness that I was seeking. Many of the great Jazz soprano players have a brighter sound than I wanted for this piece. The closest sound model I was going for is Branford Marsalis’ sound. After testing this new piece on many gigs, I knew that I had found the sound I was after.” – Jody Espina
The HR* CUSTOM DARK Series is our premium line of hard rubber saxophone mouthpieces, where the goal was to make the most beautiful sounding and playing pieces that we possibly could. As Soprano saxophone players, we know there are often a lot of unpleasant highs in the sound, especially on the higher notes. With the HR* CUSTOM DARK Soprano, we retained the fun of playing a great Soprano mouthpiece while taking all the unpleasant highs off. In order to achieve this goal, we started with the finest material used in hard rubber mouthpieces today, which is our proprietary Chedeville® Rubber. CHR (Chedeville Rubber) is a softer purer formula than regular standard hard rubber. This rubber imparts a rich warm sound.
