JodyJazz - DV Chicago Series - Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces

Regular price $879.00 $0.00 Unit price per

The DV Chicago model silver plated metal tenor saxophone mouthpiece is the culmination of a quest by Jody Espina to make the most efficient saxophone mouthpiece that delivers the biggest, fullest sound.

The DV CHI produces a darker, less bright tone than the contemporary sound of the JodyJazz DV, but a considerably brighter more modern tone than the JodyJazz DV NY. The beautifully shaped baffle/chamber design of the DV CHI produces a tone that is reminiscent of Dexter Gordon but is quite at home in a contemporary situation.

Simply put, the DV CHI combines the best properties of the highly successful DV and DV NY series while adding several new design modifications which enhance the players ability to manipulate the tone. The scalloped chamber also allows the player to push more air through the mouthpiece without experiencing any harshness.

Special Notes

Due to the free blowing nature of the DV CHI Tenor, be prepared to use a harder reed than you normally do. This may or may not be the case for you. The great benefit of this is that a harder reed lasts longer and a harder reed helps the altissimo range. For this same reason, you may want to try a slightly more open tip than normal. For example, Otto Link # 7 players, will usually play a DV CHI 7*.
