Hi all. I have a Jody Jazz metal DV 7* which I like a lot, but I need a hard rubber piece for playing a little less funky/rocky. I'm going to be playing in a "concert band" (mostly fun up-beat stuff).

I'd like something that isn't "classical" sounding, but not too brash. Just middle-of-the-road jazzy. Hopefully I could play some Ben Webster / Stan Getz type stuff with it...

Any ideas welcome, but let's keep it under $400. I'm leaning towards the Jody Jazz or Yani, but only for name recognition.

I've done searches, but would like direct feedback for what I'm looking for.

thanks!

Thanks for the great responses. I think I'll get a few used ones along the lines of what is recommended, and sell the ones that don't work for me. If none of those work, I'll at least be closer to knowing what kind of sound I want, and I can get a custom Phil-Tone.

I'm also looking for a dark jazzy piece, but that may have to be a Jody Jazz DV NY.

I'm also selling my Drake Custom (sorry for the plug, but the OP is looking). If you're interested, just type in "Drake Mouthpiece" on e-bay. Great piece, but turned out to be too dark for my taste (my tone concept changed).
Thanks. I've been watching it for a few days, considering a bid. But I'm not sure I need to go beyond traditional materials to get something decent. I am very interested to hear what that piece sounds like compared to a similar HR or metal piece though...
