The new facing curve results in absolutely no dead spots in the vibration of the reed. In other words all notes in all ranges respond equally. This bari sax mouthpiece has a husky barrel-chested tone while being able to sing and soar over the top of any band. Sub toning and low notes are extremely easy and the altissimo is out of this world. Intonation is spot on. Be prepared to have possibly the most fun you ever have had on the saxophone. Players who now or in the past have played Guardala, Dukoff, Beechler, Jumbo Java, SR Tech, Vandoren V16, Yanigisawa, Berg Larsen or any of the bright mouthpieces out there will be sure to love The DV. This is not just another bright mouthpiece. There will be noticeable differences and improvements. The chamber is big and fat, and the sound is unusually full. The JodyJazz ESP will deliver a round full sound with a big bottom end without sacrificing the high end or ease of playing. The second register of the saxophone will be nice and clean and not muddy so that improvising on the ESP Bari Gold will be dream. When you need to cut through you'll have the power and when you need to blend you'll also have the ability to shape your sound and volume effortlessly.
