Someone has compared the Jody Jazz DV NY mouthpiece and Lebayle LRII mouthpece ?
What are your considerations and opinions ?

Hi from Spain,

I find the DV NY lacks projection, a tad too much dark sound.

The LRII (IMHO) has the most beautiful sound I have ever heard. It has everything in the right amount, for a more traditional not edgy/rock sound.

I have owned and tried a lot of mpc's, for me the best sounding is: LRII.

A clip of mine playing LRII

Please, keep in mind that I am a classical saxophonist. Although I like jazz very much I only have study classical music.

Cheers,
Anselmo

I've tried both, and I have the same opinion.
Very easy blowing but lack of projection the Jody DV NJ.
The LRII is much more better in projection.

How does it stack up to the original DV? I tried the NY and did not like it at all. However, the JJ DV works great on my Conn Alto.

Never tried the Jody, but the LRII is definitively a great mouthpiece!!!
The LRII can be so sweet as a Link and so strong as a Berg.

Hi,

The SBA - RSJ filed 2H reeds and Brancher metal lig.

Jazz model is also great and more much cheaper. Look for "10mfan", one of his latest posts. Big money difference, not quality difference: I own both.

The best from Spain,
Anselmo

PS. Brancher metal lig is (IMHO) the best lig I have ever tried, you feel the real vibration of the reed................no words, great, try it if you can. Mr Brancher is a really very, very kind person, you can reach him through e-mail.

I own Optimum, BG tradition, Francois Louis, ............................ Brancher is the winner. Mr Brancher is not my relative ;).

What's the difference between the LR and the LRII?
Hi chitownjazz,
the Lebayle LR metal mouthpiece is a bright sound,free blowing and the great projection.
LRII is more dark sound.
