JodyJazz SuperJet Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
The Super Jet does exactly what it says on the tin – it goes like a jet! With an extended and high baffle, this piece delivers a rich, vibrant and bright tone. The air resistance is low and the sound ‘pops’ and articulates with ease. Perfect for R&B, pop, rock and soul.
More Edge, More Power, More Altissimo. This is the recipe for the brightest of all Jody’s mouthpieces.
This extract from Jody’s website sums up the piece very nicely:
"The SUPER JET is a very contemporary sounding mouthpiece with many characteristics we have not offered in our range up until this time. It’s going to give you more power, more edge and more altissimo. But as with all of our mouthpieces it is beautifully free blowing with enough bottom in the sound to make it more versatile than many mouthpieces in this category of small chamber pieces. Super fun to play, anyone who likes plenty of volume and cutting power will love this series."

"I used to play brighter pieces like this (Guardala Crescent) so going back on to one of these brought me back to those days. However, this piece is another step-up in power and edge. For minimal airstream pressure the sound produced is vibrant and free speaking. The natural feeling when playing this piece is to play funk/pop lines, and to take them high. If you are well versed in altissimo technique the Super Jet will reward you nicely as this range is full and easy to attain. Jody mentions the use of a shorter facing curve; this will undoubtedly give stability to this region of the sax, particularly when playing with a lot of power." - Jim Cheek (Sax.co.uk)
