Video Description The HR* Custom Dark is Jody Jazz's more traditional option, offering darker tones and a smoother more silky sound.
As the alto can sometimes be overbearing and shrill in areas, the custom dark really helps soften the sound allowing it to sit in a jazz setting more seamlessly.
The rollover baffle is still present in the mouthpiece, but the large chamber really compliments the mouthpiece well.
A great jazz mouthpiece!
yeah I like Jim's presentations most of the time. The JJ Custom Dark seems to be terrific but - me's been thinkin' that a little consultation with a custom maker / re-facer is more than probably 'just as viable' as over-the-counter options.
