The D-Jazz Soprano mouthpiece features a medium large chamber with a squeezed throat and a very gentle rollover baffle. The medium large chamber gives the piece a dark core and in combination with the squeezed throat the piece has a dark, rich sound with great focus. The gentle baffle provides ample projection without making the piece overly bright. The hand crafted facing assures a consistent and reed friendly feel.
The D-Jazz by MACSAX delivers the timeless sounds of the BeBop and Blue Note eras. The mouthpieces from those years are cherished for their rich, complex sounds, and painstaking craftsmanship. The D-Jazz carries this tradition forward by taking inspiration from the most widely used models of the 1940's through the 1960's, using only the finest materials, and using traditional handcrafting techniques.
The D-Jazz is crafted from pure hard rubber and is extensively handcrafted and voiced to produce a rich and balanced sound that is deeply rooted in the American Jazz tradition. Each mouthpiece's chamber, baffle, table, rails, and facing are handcrafted and each mouthpiece is carefully play tested throughout the process to ensure a consistent and efficient feel.
