THE DARKER SIDE OF THE DV
Jody Espina's DV mouthpieces are a testament to the harmonious marriage of precision engineering and artistic design. Utilizing the Golden Ratio, these mouthpieces are crafted to deliver an unprecedented sonic experience, characterized by harmonic richness, substantial body, and impressive projection. The result is a brighter, more balanced sound that stands out in the realm of alto mouthpieces.
The DV's distinctive features include a uniquely shaped step baffle, a spacious chamber, and a double window, all working together to produce a robust and effortlessly articulated sound. When inserted into an alto mouthpiece, this combination creates a winning formula that captivates players seeking both quality and versatility.
Despite being manufactured with cutting-edge computer-controlled Lathes and Mills, the DV maintains a high level of hand finishing, showcasing a commitment to detail and craftsmanship. This meticulous approach results in a mouthpiece that not only performs flawlessly but is also a visual masterpiece.
For those exploring the DV series, the comparison between the DV and the DV NY reveals nuances in the baffle design. The DV NY features a lower baffle, resulting in a less aggressive projection compared to the standard DV. However, it retains a large, warm tone, with sub-tones exuding natural warmth, and top notes cutting through with clarity. The DV NY emerges as a versatile option, providing a balanced and matured tone that sets it apart from more assertive top-end mouthpieces. In essence, the DV series promises not just a mouthpiece but an immersive journey into the realms of nuanced sound and artistic expression.

Testimonials From JodyJazz Artist Endorsers
"The day I first played JodyJazz DV Saxophone Mouthpieces I became instantly converted. No other sax mouthpieces can match them!"
"Jody,I've been playing the mouthpiece a lot and using it on the current tour through Europe with Arturo Sandoval. "The mouthpiece is amazing. The DV Tenor sax mouthpiece plays beautifully from top to bottom, loud and soft. I am really having fun playing again. AMAZING piece. Arturo loves it and audiences seem to really dig the sound. All the best,"
"After playing the Jody Jazz Tenor DV mouthpiece for a few seconds the first thought that came into my head was, "Oh, so there's my sound!" This piece makes playing fun again."
"The DV is amazing. If you play modern styles, you MUST try this mouthpiece."
"My JodyJazz DV tenor mouthpiece has a strong, fast response, with a modern sound, yet I can still get a warm subtone quality whenever I want. Easy to blow with a very focused tone, the DV, also has a third dimension to the sound that I've never encountered in any mouthpiece before. I couldn't be more happy. Way to go Jody! "
"The Jody Jazz Tenor DV is one of the most impressive saxophone mouthpieces I've ever played. The DV has amazing capabilities in terms of projection and dynamic range, yet it is highly sensitive. I find it extremely easy to articulate and express myself throughout the entire range of the horn. The DV mouthpiece is a highly significant innovation in the saxophone world, plus it's really fun to play. "
"Jody, Gotta tell you I love this DV tenor mouthpiece. It's a definite keeper. What a full sound! Adds a lot of color and definition to my tone. I was really surprised upon seeing the high baffle and extended window how nice of a sound it got, without being shrill or exhibiting harsh overtones. I am impressed with how it can be used for about any style. It can be used for nice lush subtones, and then can be pushed to honk if needed with no tone quality being sacrificed. "
