The hottest ebonite mouthpieces in the Vandoren line
Developed from the widely acclaimed Java series, the Vandoren Jumbo Java mouthpiece represents a subtle yet impactful evolution in saxophone mouthpiece design. Building upon the success of the Java, the Jumbo ventures a step further. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this mouthpiece is distinguished by its small chamber, high baffle, and a generously proportioned bore, collectively engineered to deliver a powerful and edgy tone reminiscent of the brightest metal mouthpieces.
The incorporation of a small chamber in the Vandoren Jumbo is a key element contributing to its distinctive sound profile. The high baffle further intensifies the tonal characteristics, adding a pronounced brightness to the sound that aligns with the brilliance associated with metal mouthpieces.
Notably versatile, the Vandoren Jumbo transcends the boundaries of specific musical genres. While it excels in jazz, it extends its prowess seamlessly into blues, funk, and rock genres.

Jumbo Javas are made with a somewhat different design agenda than most ebonite pieces. The Jumbo is an ebonite that sounds like a metal 'piece- Bright, loud & with plenty of 'kick' to them. Despite this, they are extremely easy to play- and feel unusually freeblowing. For power and projection, these are in the same league as metal 'pieces such as Dukoff or Berg Larsen (plus, like other high baffle pieces, they are great for altissimo playing). They're not just screamers however, with a little practice it is quite possible to 'tame' them and get a full, warm tone from their sax. An ideal choice for blues, rock, fusion or the extrovert end of the big band spectrum. Jules
