    Looks like a nice mouthpiece. I have yet to try any of Jody's mouthpieces, but I have heard that they are some of the best mouthpieces on the market today.

      Ive tried some of his other pieces, and boy are they great players! I wont be trying the DV anytime soon though, unless the price comes way down; theres a point where you are charging too much for a piece, and that is it my freinds. That being said, I dont doubt it being a great piece though

        when i bought my last horn, the store had a junk box full of mouthpieces, i played through the whole box, and found an Otto Link that plays nice for my applications. my point is that the newest and most expensive mouthpiece is not a cure all.

        I coughed up the 450 for the alto dv and I can tell you that it is far and away the best alto mpc. I have ever played. I sold my vintage guardala gold for alto an hour after I got the piece in the mail. My other mpc is a custom dukoff. If you're serious about your sound and intonation,etc.,hand worked mouthpiesces are the way to go. Have not heard much about sugal or barone that was good. Saw a couple of their mouthpieces and they looked kind of rough for something in the 4-500 dollar category

          Just out of curiosity, what type of alto do you play, perrywh? I'd be interested to know what the mouthpiece plays well with.

            Thanks for asking. That IS important. My old Guardala gold really lit up my 30's York,but when I got my Black nickel (saxophone.com) Alto,everything changed and I was on the hunt for a mouthpiece that would match this horn. See my reviews of the horn on saxophone.com. I have the matching soprano and it is awesome.

            In the last 4 months I have gone all jody jazz dv. I play an 8 on my alto and an 8* on my tenor. They are hands down the best thing that I have ever played. I get a big warm sound with easy sub tones, tons of power and easy altissimo. I tour all over the US and this piece plays well in all weather and altitude. Reeds that I would have thrown away before I can play on a gig. I will play almost every reed in the box now with minimul triming and balancing. I have spent close to a grand on 2 jody jazz mpc and it was the best money I have ever spent. I was going to get a new alto cuz I hated mine but when I put the jody jazz on it I loved it. If you are thinking about a new mpc or horn try a jody jazz and get ready to spend some cash.

              I bought two of the tenor hard rubber mouthpieces last year. 7* and 8*. Wasn't quite edgy enough for me, so I made a small wedge--presto---fantastic mouthpieces--best I have ever played. I too put the Guardala away-maybe I can sell it someday. I sold the 8* and kept the 7*. If you can't afford the metal get the hard rubber and make a small wedge.

                  I have a Barone hard rubber alto piece that plays just fine, thank you very much.

                  I have played the classics and liked them. I tried the dv's and loved them. By far the easiest, loudest,most complex sound,and most versatile pieces I have ever played. I use one on alto and tenor.
