Ive always played on dukoff tenors and have 2 really good ones.a d6 and a d7. Ive played the d6 .095 (big tips are not and never will be for me)for all occasions.weddings,clubs, parties ,blues,r/b,50s gigs and jazz gigs with no issues. Its the only mouthpiece I've ever loved since I was 19 and Im 61 now.the dukoffs are kind of worn out now and Im looking for a high quality well made piece.looking for a new toy basically.Im keeping both dukoffs and I'm cool with never finding anything I like better,Ive tried pretty much everything over the years so I don't need the dealers popping up with recommending their mouthpieces because Ive probably already tried them. I do sometimes play a jumbo java t45 which I like but not as much as my dukoffs. Been seeing all these younger guys playing jody and wanne pieces and they are so well made Id thought Id probably would like them. They really sound great too. no place to just go and test so I either will look used of eBay/reverb or order from a place that has a return policy. I actually have a super jet alto from jody which I like a lot. tried a 7 super jet tenor and it wasn't for me.question is what wanne pieces would be comparable to a great dukoff? he makes so many models and then there are 1,2,3,4 generations. its confusing. also Im wondering if jody even makes a dv in a 6* or 7 . all I see is 6=90 or 7*=105 . thanks for any insights about these brands in advance .
