What Is the DV BASS Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The DV BASS is a state-of-the-art bass sax mouthpiece, finally. The DV BASS will appeal to the bass sax player looking for a mouthpiece that give the bass sax the quicker and more immediate response of the Tenor sax. The mouthpiece is based on the popular DV model but has several modifications, the most significant being a very deep chamber tuned to the bass sax and a new development called the hyperbolic chamber that rounds out the tone.
Three Goals in Creating the DV BASS Saxophone Mouthpieces
1. To create the most efficient sax mouthpiece possible. That means that there are more harmonics present in the sound and therefore the projection of this bass sax mouthpiece is huge.
2. To give a more free blowing experience to the bass saxophone.
3. To have a big fat midrange and bottom end while having more clarity of tone than is usually present in BASS sax mouthpieces.
Comes with a Gold Plated Rico H Ligature, FF Cap, Mouthpiece Pouch and special Wood Cylinder case,

Comments about JodyJazz DV Bass Saxophone Mouthpieces:
After many emails with the company, it has become apparent that this is probably well suited for baritone sax and perhaps some bass saxophones. The inside diameter of the shank is .702 per the company...while my selmer bass is .838 (much older model 26 large bore).
I really want to give a higher rating...even demonstration the sound on a bass sax vs. a baritone on the Jody Jazz website would be nice...as this is perhaps the only game in town for jazz and rock bass sax.
Alas, the company is not interested in producing the mouthpiece to fit my horn...best advice is to measure the very tip of your neck (not the cork) and hope that this piece would fit before wasting a trip to try out.
