"What Is the JodyJazz Classic Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The JodyJazz Classic Soprano Sax mouthpiece is a "free blowing" easy to play mouthpiece that captures the full range of tonal qualities of the instrument. The low register of the soprano saxophone is full, round and strong, while the upper register is warm sounding, and in tune. In addition, the altissimo register, which is very difficult on soprano, responds very well on the JodyJazz Classic Soprano. The mouthpiece has a clean, focused sound with excellent projection, while maintaining extraordinary versatility. Excellent for straight ahead jazz playing, and due to it's versatility, the JodyJazz blends nicely with a concert band or saxophone quartet.

"Three Goals in Creating the JodyJazz Classic Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece
- To create a free blowing Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece that is extremely versatile and has warm sound yet plenty of power.
- To offer a medium/large round chamber soprano sax mouthpiece which gives a focused sound and to demand and achieve the most rigourous quality control possible.
- To make a soprano sax mouthpiece that can sound as bright and strong as a metal sax mouthpiece, but costs much less than a metal mouthpiece.
"Free Blowing Wonders" - Jazz Times
JodyJazz Classic Mouthpieces are made of a proprietary polycarbonate alloy with a synthetic rubber mix which is a high tech, expensive material. This is not like ABS plastic or any other kind of plastic material currently used for clarinet and saxophone mouthpieces. In fact the material that makes the JodyJazz Classic mouthpiece is six times more expensive than that used in other plastic mouthpieces. The formula to our material, which is a highly guarded secret, contains a certain amount of synthetic rubber which is a form of plastic that can be molded into parts that feel just like rubber. Because of the addition of the synthetic rubber, JodyJazz Classic Saxophone & Clarinet Mouthpieces, produce the warm overtones that hard rubber mouthpieces can produce while allowing us to use the manufacturing process know as precision injection molding. Besides being able to flawlessly produce the intricate forms and curves of a clarinet or saxophone mouthpiece, injection molding allows us to achieve uniform cooling. As each mouthpiece is molded it is dropped into a huge vat of cool water insuring that each mouthpiece cools at the same rate. Cooling is critical in this type of manufacturing as well as in the manufacturing of hard rubber mouthpieces because if cooling occurs at different temperatures than the mouthpieces will have slightly different dimensions due to shrinkage.
