Manufacturer's Description

"What is the HR* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The HR* is a hard rubber saxophone mouthpiece aimed at professionals and students looking for a traditional versatile mouthpiece. High quality control standards, a beautiful warm sound and a nice free blowing feel make these new mouthpieces amazing players. We feel that this mouthpiece may be the best hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpiece on the market.

"Warmth & Beauty

I get these blanks from a source in Germany and the Hard Rubber has the look, feel and sound of vintage hard Rubber sax mouthpieces that make some of the most sought after mouthpieces. The mouthpieces are faced on a special facing machine and then meticoulously hand finished and play tested.

Three Goals in Creating the HR* Series of Saxophone Mouthpieces

  1. To offer the most traditional style of jazz saxophone mouthpiece: round chamber hard rubber, and demand and obtain the most rigourous quality control possible.
  2. To create a freeblowing hard rubber mouthpiece that allows the lowest and highest notes to speak with equal ease.
  3. To make a hard rubber sax mouthpiece that can sound beautiful, but also give good strong projection when necessary.

"Versatility"

The HR* alto is a round chamber mouthpiece which provides a round sound in contrast to a more focused sound which a square chamber provides. This allows the HR* to sound very pretty and the medium chamber allows the piece to have very good projection when pushed.

Players who now or in the past have played Meyer, Otto Link, Bari, Vandoren, Yanigisawa, or any of the straight ahead hard rubber Jazz mouthpieces out there will be sure to love The JodyJazz HR*. The differences come from our particular facing curve, the exact size and shape of the chamber and our commitment to quality control.

I have found that many players who have been playing a hard rubber alto sax mouthpiece for many years are in need of a replacement ( due to wear and tear) and do not know where to turn. We have had many many converts who came from playing the most popular hard rubber Jazz pieces. These players are almost always surprised at the quality and consistency of JodyJazz hard rubber alto mouthpieces.
