Designed with Phi Proportions
The DV series of mouthpieces are designed using the Phi proportions to create a perfect design that can deliver high quality sound. The Phi proportion is an equation that is used to find and create perfect harmony between things and is seen mostly in nature and art. JodyJazz has applied this equation in the design of the DV to create a big rich sound and a chamber that increases harmonics.
Using highly sophisticated controlled lathes and mills and finished by hand, the DV is a uniquely crafted mouthpiece, that looks and sounds premium. With a newly designed facing technology and curve that provides perfection every time and removes the possibility of dead spots in the reeds vibration, the DV also features a second window to allow for the sound wave in the mouthpiece to also hit the reed above the bore of the mouthpiece.
JodyJazz’s DV Mouthpieces produce a range of tones that offer the ability to play the way you want, whilst enjoying high quality sound. The mouthpieces deliver a warm sound that projects well and has have enough power to fill up the tone and provide fat notes. With spot on intonations, an incredible altissimo response, clear articulations and plenty of harmonics, the DV series provides easy sub tones and low notes, as well as a good response for notes in all ranges, making the mouthpiece excellent for singing and soaring above bands.
JodyJazz was founded by Jody Espina and has gone on to be one of the leading designers and producers of mouthpieces for saxophones and clarinets. Using state of the art design and production techniques, with the use of 3D modelling and crafted using CNC multi axis machines, they are finished by hand and play tested by Jody Espina himself, or the company's other professional players, to ensure that each mouthpiece has a perfect seal with the reed and has a proper response throughout the range of saxophones.

Testimonials from JodyJazz Artist Endorsers
''The DV CHI might be silver plated but Jody Espina struck gold with this one. It has such clarity in sound it fills up the room in HD quality. The DV CHI is history in the making. I don’t know how Jody can continue to make such outstanding mouthpieces. Each mouthpiece is wonderful. The DV is so cutting edge you can really scream on it. The DV NY has such a mellow tone and sounds beautiful on a ballad. Then you have the DV CHI which is a cross of the two so get the best of both worlds. Chicago is known for having such a robust sound and the DV CHI has truly captured the Chicago spirit.'' - Dudley Owens.
''As soon as I played the DV CHI tenor mouthpiece, I knew it was going to me be my main piece and my Link would become my backup. The mouthpiece is a work of art. It articulates like nothing I’ve ever played and the projection is amazing with no loss of tone integrity. It has a beautiful “ping” yet has depth and width with a true three-dimensional sound. Brilliant job, Jody!!'' - Sam Skelton.
''I am completely in love with the entire JodyJazz DV series, I have never had so much quickness and flexibility in my playing!''. - Frank Catalano.
