Experience Exceptional Projection, Versatility, and Fullness with the JodyJazz DV HR in Hard Rubber
Introducing the sensational DV HR tenor mouthpiece, following very closely in the footsteps of the incredibly popular alto version. Immerse yourself in the extraordinary sound that captured the hearts of musicians with the metal DV line, now crafted with hard rubber to achieve a profound and rich undertone.
The JodyJazz DV has been one of the leading mouthpieces on the scene for many years, famous for its beautiful free-blowing tone and its unique secondary window that gives so much extra resonance in the mids and lows, The fact that it is now made in hard rubber will open it up to all those players who love the feel and sound of this material. Additionally, hard rubber adds EVEN MORE warmth to the sound beyond what is possible on the metal version.
The patented 'secondary window' appears on all DV's and its formula is derived from the golden mean proportions that are found in nature. This aspect of the design is so fundamental in creating the additional resonance that you can feel eminating from this mouthpiece when you play it. In addition to this, the facing curve proportions on the DV HR are also inspired by the golden mean, adding to that feeling of optimal response.
And it doesn't end there! The DV HR also features a stylized gold-plated brass ring on the shank of the mouthpiece. The brass ring adds more mass on the shank of the mouthpiece which results in increased stability, more body in the sound and increased harmonics.
With the new DV HR Tenor model, JodyJazz is also introducing its newest bite plate technology. The DV HR Tenor and Alto models are the first JodyJazz hard rubber mouthpieces to feature a bite plate embedded into the beak of the mouthpiece. The plate features the iconic ‘Phi’ symbol logo in gold, a characteristic of the classic DV series, completing the stunning look of this new mouthpiece. The new bite plate is not only beautiful but is also functional however we do recommend using a mouthpiece cushion on top of the bite plate for comfort of the player and longevity of the bite plate.
• Material: Ebonite
• Made In: USA
• Chamber: Large
• Baffle: Rollover
• Ligature: Not included
• Recommended for: Jazz, Pop, Soul, R&B, Funk
Although the DV HR comes without a ligature we would recommend that you try combining it with the JodyJazz Power Ring (HRT1 size for gold or HRT1S for silver - or if you want to go the whole hog, consider the Hand Hammered Power Rings in gold or rose gold) for added power and weight of sound. Much of this power comes from the additional mass that is present in the latest Power Rings. They are also designed with a concave internal shaping such that there are only two points of contact with the reed, allowing the maximum amount of reed vibration while offering huge additional resonance to the whole setup.
