JodyJazz - DV NY Series - Alto Saxophone Mouthpieces
The DV NY produces a darker, less bright tone than the more contemporary sound of the DV. The deep baffle/chamber design of the DV NY produces a beautiful Classic Jazz sound reminiscent of the masters of the 50’s and 60’s. While having slightly more resistance than the DV, the DV NY is considered a very free blowing saxophone mouthpiece.

The mouthpiece comes with a Rovner Star Series Ligature & Cap, Deluxe Mouthpiece Pouch and special Wood Cylinder case.
DV NY vs DV (How are they different?)
Both mouthpieces have a full resonant sound due to the secondary window. The DV will have more projection and be brighter due to the raised floor of the chamber while the DV NY will have a more traditional Jazz sound and projection due to the deep full chamber. We often recommend trying both mouthpieces if you are not sure which model would suit you.
Due to the free blowing nature due to the precise facing curve of the DV NY Alto and all the DV's, be prepared for the possibility of using 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.
