"What is the DV NY Metal Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece?
"The DV NY for Alto Sax will appeal to the Straight Ahead player looking for the best playing and sounding mouthpiece that he or she can find. The mouthpiece is based on our popular DV model but has several modifications, the most significant being a deep chamber. All tests with players have been extremely positive and we've had great response from "Link" and "Meyer" players. And most importantly, the DV NY has become my main alto mouthpiece. The DV NY occupies a similar place as the ESP but we think that players who like a wider mouthpiece in the mouth, and a more spread sound will choose the DV NY. Players who like more of a Berg Larsen focused sound and a thinner profile piece may prefer the ESP.
"Effortless Vintage Sound
"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.
"The DV NY produces a darker, less bright tone than the contemporary sound of the DV. The deep baffle/chamber design of the DV NY produce a beautiful Classic Jazz Alto sound reminiscent of the masters of the 40's, 50’s and 60’s.
"Three Goals in Creating the DV NY Saxophone Mouthpieces
- To create the most efficient mouthpiece possible. That means that there is no stuffiness and little resistance.
- To emulate the sound of the Classic 50’s and 60’s Alto Sax players, while giving the sound an extra fatness from the secondary window.
- To produce the most beautiful tone on any JodyJazz mouthpiece so far.
"Testimonials from JodyJazz Artist Endorsers
"Jody, You have humanized, what it is to play saxophone. I didn't know this level of spontaneity and accuracy was possible before I played your mouthpiece. You have excited me about playing. I feel like there's nothing in my mouth. Knowledge, Heart and Creativity have gone into making this mouthpiece. Every person who plays this mouthpiece will want one "
"JodyJazz Mouthpieces play with incredible ease and comfort in every register of the instrument. The idea of working for your sound has been eliminated, now I can blow freely and enjoy the comfort of improvising in a relaxed way." "
"Dream Come True
"To create the most efficient mouthpiece possible while emulating the sound of the Classic 50's and 60's metal Alto sax mouthpieces. That means that a beautiful, rich Alto sax tone is able to be produced with less effort than on previous mouthpieces.
"The new facing curve results in absolutely no dead spots in the vibration of the reed. In other words all notes in all ranges respond equally. This Alto sax mouthpiece has a husky barrel-chested tone and can sing sweetly and beautifully. Sub toning and low notes are extremely easy and the altissimo is out of this world. Intonation is spot on. Be prepared to be inspired by your tone.
"Players who now or in the past have played Otto Link, Meyer, Morgan, or any of the darker classic mouthpieces out there will be sure to love The DV NY. This is not just another straight-ahead saxophone mouthpiece. There will be noticeable differences and improvements.
"I have found that many jazz saxophone players are playing saxophone mouthpieces that are stuffy and have a high degree of resistance. Also low notes can be more difficult to play on these older mouthpieces.
"We have had many converts who were playing the most popular Jazz saxophone mouthpieces and who are amazed to find a saxophone mouthpiece that works so efficiently, where the articulation is clean and one can easily go from low to high and vice versa and still retain a beautiful full warm tone.
"The DV NY is manufactured on the most sophisticated computer controlled Lathes and Mills, yet the DV NY benefits from a high degree of hand finishing. The attention to detail in design and finishing given to the DV NY results in a stunning work of art that plays like a dream come true."
