A bright, powerful, and free-blowing mouthpiece
Jody Espina came to our store for us to try the Jet Tenor before its release. Before this, the mouthpiece market was very limited for Bright and punchy non-metal tenor pieces that did not break the bank and were of such high quality. We were staggered by how well-balanced the big fat sound was combined with the powerful projection it gives you. Also, we found it very free-blowing and incredibly easy to play and control altissimo. The JodyJazz JET Tenor Saxophone mouthpiece is a free-blowing, easy, and fun-to-play mouthpiece that captures the full range of tonal qualities of the instrument. The JET has a clean, focused sound with strong projection and cut while maintaining extraordinary versatility. The JodyJazz JET is excellent for Rock, Funk, Blues, Smooth Jazz and Latin Music, Reggae, Ska, Funk, Hip Hop, Top 40, Duranguense, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Compa, Tejano, Musica Popular Brasileira, but at the same time we think that many Tenor sax players will be surprised at how well it plays lead Tenor in a big band or Jazz Combo. In other words the JET is a great saxophone mouthpiece that seems to appeal to a very broad variety of players.

Special Notes on the JET Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
Due 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 times. 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 Tenor 7* I play a Rico Jazz Select 3M and on the Jet Tenor 7* I prefer a 3S and sometimes even a 2H11. The Jet is still fee 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.
