JodyJazz - JET Series - Alto Saxophone Mouthpieces
The JET is a bright saxophone mouthpiece with excellent projection, extra easy altissimo register and yet can be played with a warm versatile feel. It is a free blowing, easy and fun to play mouthpiece that captures the full range of tonal qualities of the instrument. It has a clean, focused sound with strong projection and cut, while maintaining extraordinary versatility. The JET is a great saxophone mouthpiece that appeals to a very broad variety of players.

The mouthpiece comes with Deluxe Mouthpiece Pouch.
Special NotesDue to the shorter facing curve on the JET a softer reed than you might normally use could be appropriate. This is because the reed actually has less length in which to vibrate. This doesn't hinder playing at all, in fact it makes the JET one of the greatest altissimo pieces of all time. Altissimo still works great with a little softer reed. These are my observations and how I like to play the JET. For example on a JodyJazz DV alto 7 I play a Rico Jazz Select 3M and on the JET I prefer a 3S. The JET is still free-blowing but I think the JET's shorter facing curve makes a difference with the reed. The main message is that anytime you are trying a new mouthpiece two things are very important: finding the right reed for the mouthpiece and making sure that while you try the mouthpiece you are in tune. Don't assume that it will go on the neck in the same place as your previous mouthpiece. In fact the JET pushes on further than many mouthpieces. I love the JET and I hope you will too.
