The JodyJazz JET is excellent for Big Band, Rock, Funk, Blues, Smooth Jazz and Latin Music, Reggae, Ska, Funk, Hip Hop, Top 40, Duranguense, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Compa, Tejano, Musica Popular Brasileira. We think that many Baritone sax players will be surprised at how well it plays in a big band due to its blending capabilities. In other words, the JET is a great saxophone mouthpiece that seems to appeal to a very broad variety of players. The thing to remember is that no two players are alike so that it’s all about finding the mouthpiece that responds to your morphology (physical makeup). Morphology means that you have a chamber in your mouth and throat which reacts with the mouthpiece so some people sound better on a small chamber mouthpiece like the JET and some people sound better with a larger chamber piece like the JodyJazz HR*.

SPECIAL NOTES ON THE JET BARITONE 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 time. 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 Baritone 7 I play a Rico Jazz Select 3M and on the JET I prefer a 3S. The JET is still free-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.Jody Espina – President, JodyJazz
