The JodyJazz GIANT Series introduces a new concept in saxophone mouthpiece design they call "Stealth Metal" that combines the outside shape and look of a hard rubber mouthpiece with the precision of Aerospace Grade Hard Anodized Aluminum. The GIANT has a dark, big saxophone sound but with strong projection and cut. The JodyJazz Giant is excellent for jazz, straight ahead, bebop, big band, even rock, funk, and blues. Due to its versatility, it can blend nicely with a concert band or saxophone quartet.
The GIANT has a large chamber and a large sound. This tenor saxophone mouthpiece is somewhat unique in the fact that normally to get a lot of projection you have to have a smaller chamber, which gives you a brighter more cutting sound. And when a mouthpiece has a larger chamber the sound becomes warmer but the projection goes way down. Another way to say that is that large chamber saxophone mouthpieces are typically quieter. But the GIANT has a large chamber and huge warm sound due to the following unique factors that make up the Giant: Material - Anodized Aluminum, Facing Curve - this is a brand new facing curve that allows maximum reed vibration, Baffle - this is the material inside the mouthpiece right next to the tip rail (extremely important for projection), Chamber Shape - The GIANT has its own unique chamber shape that allows warmth with projection.
The GIANT produces a sound that has a core and more. Its focused sound is a result of the chamber and material combination allowing it to create a sound that can be shaped by the player. The mouthpiece comes with a Rico H Ligature and Cap, and Deluxe Mouthpiece Pouch.
The GIANT is made on JodyJazz's five-axis CNC mill in their factory in Savannah. The Aerospace Grade Hard Anodized Aluminum provides the perfect tone and the ability to manufacture with extremely high tolerances. Each GIANT mouthpiece is hand-finished to ensure the absolute best quality and is individually play-tested to ensure a perfect seal with the reed and proper response throughout the range of the saxophone.
A dark, big saxophone sound but with strong projection and cut; excellent for Jazz, Straight Ahead, Bebop, Big Band and even Funk and Blues.

Comments about JodyJazz GIANT Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:
Has the feel of a hard rubber mouthpiece with the projection of a metal,that is after a cushion is added the aluminum is rough on the teeth.I bought this mouthpiece as used ,the description read small scratches ,they ended up being dried on spit - gross . when cleaned up it was scratch free .
