Yes, I do. I just made a video of me playing a P. Mauriat PMB300UL with a Jody Jazz Classic 7. I will post the video tomorrow, I will include a link here. I'm still traveling home from a trade show.

I do. I don't much like it. I'll be making a change soon. The JJ made a great power piece for tenor, but I didn't get the same results on Bari. I would consider selling you mine if you decide it's the way you want to go. It's a 7

I play the classic #7 with the baffle with a 1 1/2 Fibracell reed. The cut "Angel Eyes" on my myspace site is this set up. I have since switched to a #2 and Pete Thomas' PPT piece. I like both. The classic's sound is a little more focused to my ears.

I play an ESP 8 on bari. I really like it. The sound is its free blowing, punchy enough, and still sits nice and thick when it goes through the mic and the PA.

I never have good luck with JJ mouthpiece. I have an old classic #9 that was very stuffy, I send it to Merlin William for checking it, the facing was not good but also not the good size. Recently I try a DV: unplayable. Quality control?

I play an ESP 8 as well, for about 3 years now. I play mainly tenor, but this mouthpiece works really nice for me.
I have played a Vandoren B75 and STM 8 before, but this plays way better. It's suited for a variety of styles and it's got a warm and punchy sound, when needed.
I think i need to check out the Vandoren B9 and jody jazz DV NY, those are mouthpieces that might work as well for me, never had any luck with high baffled pieces...

If you find a DV unplayable, I would say it is not due to quality control. They are made very consitently and have nice free-blowing facings on them. However, players often have a problem adjusting to the duck-bill design and the high baffle.

I hope so at this price! maybe you'r right, very high baffle are not my first preference even if I play a Lamberson 6DD alto, on tenor and bari berg metal I play the #2 chamber, I supose those are not high baffle.... I have enough experience to play high baflled piece, the DV I have try, skeak terribly.

I found play-testing DV and DVNY for tenor and now having bought and played a DVNY bari piece for several weeks that these DV's are very free-blowing and I need a much firmer reed with them. Size for size (tip opening) they blow much easier than most mouthpieces. If your playing style is to push a lot of air through the horn and your reed is too soft it will just slam shut and shriek. Some folks like this free- blowing nature (I do), and Jody makes no bones about that being what he set out to do- make a piece that blows realllly easy. But some guys, especially those who have been playing for a while like to have more resistance to push against and these DV's really don't have that.

On his site, Jody suggests using a harder reed or more open tip than what you are used on an other mouthpiece when playing the DV/DV NY.
I have a tenor DV NY 9* i played for a while and i had to move up a little more than a 1/2 in reed strength in comparison with the stm i was playing before to get the most out of the mouthpiece.
That's how free-blowing they are.

My experience has been about the same.

Hi, your setup works great but I prefer on Bari a much more fat and deep sound. Maybe it is only due to the recording quality.
All the best,

Stan
Huh? Sounded pretty phat to me.:scratch:......
