Wow. I have never used a mouthpiece as bright and loud as my JJ Classic tenor MPC. (spoiler in). I am a big advocate of using amplification to be heard, but I ocassionally (when I am feeling really lazy) use my JJ in small rooms even with bass, drums, and electric guitar.
The thread title says "Jody Jazz", and that's what the OP talks about and by the second post and thereon, the conversation is about Runyons. Might be considerate to let unknowing readers know the connection between JJ classic and runyons, what?.
The JJ Classic is made with the same molds as the Runyon Custom. There may be a small amount of additional finishing work on the Classic's facing length and tip rail. The Classics used to be play tested for QC by Jody when they first came out. I do not know if they still are.
Jody appears to use a different maker for his HR mouthpieces and another one for his high end DV mouthpieces.
