Jody Espina of JodyJazz has founded a new classical saxophone mouthpiece company, using the remarkable new CHR Chedeville rubber. Long an iconic ideal to clarinetists and saxophonists, this is a dream we didn’t even have that has come true! The material, design, state of the art manufacturing and skilled play testing before shipping give us a mouthpiece with an unbelievably warm, dark, glowing tone with great depth and core and a hint of grain that in my opinion is the hallmark of the French school of playing established by “le Maitre” Marcel Mule 80 years ago. “Le Maitre” was the second professor of saxophone at the Paris Conservatoire, succeeding Adolphe Sax himself. These mouthpieces do great honour to their legacy.
