Three Goals in Creating the JodyJazz Classic Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece
1.To create a free blowing Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece that is extremely versatile and has warm sound yet plenty of power.
2.To offer a medium/large round chamber soprano sax mouthpiece which gives a focused sound and to demand and achieve the most rigorous quality control possible.
3.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.
"Extremely freeblowing and astonishingly easy to play. Due to its tiny profile and acrylic body the classic feels to be half way between an ebonite and a metal mouthpiece. The spoiler adds a bit of extra 'kick' in high resisters and makes controlling harmonics noticeably easier." Jim@sax.co.uk

"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.
