The HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor mouthpiece from JodyJazz offers more warmth, which comes from the company’s proprietary “CHR” Chedeville Hard Rubber it is constructed from.

The new HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor also features a heavy stylized ring on the shank of the mouthpiece. The profile and heft of this ring was inspired by JodyJazz’s popular POWER RING ligature. With significantly more mass on the shank of the mouthpiece the HR* CUSTOM DARK Tenor enjoys a boost of body and increased harmonics.

The new JodyJazz HR Clarinet mouthpiece model is a free-blowing, warm-sounding and versatile mouthpiece, very much in the tradition of the entire HR* saxophone mouthpiece series. The lower tip openings (1-5) are designed to blend in Concert band, Marching band, Symphonic, Chamber and Pit Orchestra settings, while the higher tip openings (6-10) are designed with a facing curve and higher baffle to enhance projection and brightness for Jazz, Klezmer, Latin, and Eastern European Clarinet styles.
