The HR* CUSTOM DARK Alto is JodyJazz’s premium line of hard rubber saxophone mouthpieces, where the goal is to make the most beautiful sounding and playing piece that they possibly can. In order to achieve this goal JodyJazz started with the finest material used in hard rubber mouthpieces today, which is their proprietary Chedeville® Rubber. CHR (Chedeville Rubber) is a softer purer formula than regular standard hard rubber. This rubber imparts a rich warm sound.
Next they created a design that includes rounded sidewalls that add complexity or “moonglow” on top of the core sound.
A large round chamber puts the timbre in a warm honey zone and the inspired addition of a thick heavy gold plated brass band on the shank boosts the amount of harmonics in the sound.
Does not include ligature, but pairs well with the JodyJazz POWER RING
