Designed with Phi Proportions
The DV NY mouthpieces are designed using the Phi proportions to deliver a high quality sound. The Phi proportions is an equation that is used to find and create perfect harmony between things and is seen mostly in nature and art. Jody Jazz has applied this equation in the design of the DV NY series to create a big rich sound as well as a chamber that increases harmonics.
Using highly sophisticated controlled lathes and mills and finished off by hand to a high degree, the DV NY is a uniquely crafted mouthpiece, that looks and sounds special. With a newly designed facing technology and curve that provides perfection every time and removes the possibility of dead spots in the reed's vibration, the DV NY also features a second window to allow for the sound wave in the mouthpiece to hit the reed above the bore of the mouthpiece and a thin beak to provide more vibration which contributes to the diffusion of the sound.
Jody Jazz’s DV NY Mouthpieces feature a range of tones that offer the ability to play the way you want, with high quality sound. The mouthpieces deliver a dark, classical jazz sound that projects well and has enough power to fill up the tone and provide fat notes. With spot on intonation, an incredible altissimo response, clear articulation and plenty of harmonics, the DV NY series also provides easy sub toning and low notes, as well as a good response for notes in all ranges, making the mouthpiece excellent for singing and soaring above bands.
The DV NY Series
From JodyJazz comes the DV NY series of mouthpieces, based on their DV NY series. Using an equation of nature’s perfection, coupled with imagination and science to create a mouthpiece that delivers the highest degree of craftsmanship with the pure sound of beauty. Created using highly sophisticated technology and finished by hand to achieve the perfect radius facing curve and reed/tip match, the DV NY mouthpiece is coated in a 24kt gold plating to create a piece of art for your saxophone.
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, mouthpieces are then finished off by hand and play tested by Jody Espina himself, or the company's other professional players, to insure that each mouthpiece has a perfect seal with the reed and has a proper response throughout the range of saxophones.
