Savannah, GA, 21 January 2013 – JodyJazz Inc, one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of premium saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces, has been named as a winner of the 2012 Music Inc Magazine Product Excellence Awards. The only woodwind product to receive the award, typical voter remarks included comments such as “Great margin for the dealer, great brand story and a great face behind the product in Jody Espina.”
Winner of several awards for product design and application of innovative technologies over the past few years, JodyJazz founder and President Jody Espina commented “What makes this award so special is that it is the result of a vote by retailers. So I am particularly proud of this award”, he continued. “I want to thank all the retailers who voted for us and I commit to you that we will keep doing what we’ve been doing and strive to be even better by making the best mouthpieces that money can buy.”
The flagship of the JodyJazz range is the JodyJazz ‘DV’ Series mouthpieces. These superior mouthpieces offer several exclusive and patented design innovations making them unique in the marketplace. Firstly their design utilizes ‘Phi’ Proportions, also known as the ‘Golden Section’ Proportions. These are the proportions that occur throughout nature and have appeared regularly in the course of history. They are found in the Stradivarius Violin, the Nautilus shell, the dolphin, human beings, the Ancient Pyramids and much more. With the DV series, (named DV for ‘Da Vinci’) Golden Section Proportions are used for the first time on a saxophone mouthpiece resulting in a chamber that increases harmonics making the sound bigger and richer. DV mouthpieces also feature a revolutionary ‘Secondary Window’ design. The moving sound wave inside of the mouthpiece is now able to strike the vibrating reed above the bore of the mouthpiece instead of the mouthpiece material that is usually there. Finally, through the innovative use of new CNC technology, the company developed a proprietary way of putting on a new facing curve that ensures perfection every time.
The JodyJazz ‘DV’ Series offers mouthpieces for Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone and Bass.
The DV series is also now joined by the ‘DV NY’ and ‘DV CHI’ Series.
