A full-sounding mouthpiece, with enough edge to “cut through” but enough warmth for sensitive ballad work. Comes with Rovner Ligature and Cap.
What makes the JDX Baritone Better for Modern Jazz and Popular Music?
In contemporary music or in other words, playing saxophone in today’s world, it’s a fact that saxophonists and especially Baritone Saxophone players need a certain amount of power, projection and cut in order to be heard among all of the electronic instruments. The JDX delivers this power in an elegant and beautiful-sounding package. The sound of Jason Marshall, Doc Kupka of Tower of Power, Pepper Adams, Nick Brignola and Ronnie Cuber, to name a few are some examples of the range of tone one might obtain from the Rousseau JDX Baritone saxophone mouthpiece.
The wider tip openings of Jazz sax mouthpieces necessitate playing softer reeds than the reeds you play with a Classical sax mouthpiece. Also, in general, Jazz players are seeking a buzzier sound that the softer reed provides. Jazz mouthpieces are louder and brighter than Classical mouthpieces because of the smaller chamber of the Jazz mouthpieces. The larger tip opening of a Jazz mouthpiece also provides for some more volume of tone but mostly it assists in the bending of notes.
Rousseau Jazz mouthpieces are designed for saxophonists at every level from Top Pros and Recording Artists, To University Professors to aspiring students from Middle School to College.
Rousseau mouthpieces are made from traditional hard Rubber and manufactured 100% in the USA and then expertly hand-finished by our artisans at the JodyJazz Factory on the crucial and indispensable final details of the mouthpiece such as baffle and tip rail.
