JodyJazz DVNY 9* Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
"What is the DV NY Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece?
"The DV NY for Tenor 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 very positive and we've had great response from "Link" players. And most importantly I am completely satisfied and in love with the mouthpiece. The DV NY occupies a similar place as the ESP and 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. Players seem to prefer a size larger than what they would comparably play on a Link, for example, due to the relatively free blowing nature of the DV NY.
"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 Tenor sound reminiscent of the masters of the 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 metal tenor sax mouthpieces, while giving the sound an extra fatness from the secondary window.
- To produce the most beautiful tone on any JodyJazz mouthpiece so far.
"About the patch on the DV NY:
"The beak of this mouthpiece is thin which allows for more vibration and contributes to the spread of the sound or what I call sound diffusion. A thin beak does not allow us to put a patch the way the DV has. We provide a a clear patch which feels very comfortable. For those of you who think that this may be a problem, I ask you to try the piece so that you can see for yourself.
"Dream Come True"
"To create the most efficient mouthpiece possible while emulating the sound of the Classic 50's and 60's metal tenor sax mouthpieces. That means that a beautiful, rich tenor 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 tenor 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, Guardala Crescent, Dukoff Hollywood, 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."
