E. Rousseau JDX 4 Jazz Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece BRAND NEW
Shipping Cost : $6.00
The JDX Alto sax mouthpiece is brighter and has stronger projection than the Rousseau Studio Jazz Series. The JDX features a unique wedged baffle that balances a stable sound with greater power, edge and projection. Good response and an even scale in all registers. A full sounding mouthpiece, with enough edge to "cut through" but enough warmth for sensitive ballad work.
In contemporary music or in other words playing saxophone in today's world, it's a fact that saxophonists need a certain amount of power, projection and cut in order to be heard among all of the electronic instruments. The JDX delivers this power in an elegant and beautiful sounding package. The sound of Gerald Albright, Kirk Whalum, Eric Marienthal, Grover Washington and Cannonball Adderley to name a few are some examples of the range of tone one might obtain from the Rousseau JDX Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece.
The wider tip openings of Jazz sax mouthpieces necessitate playing softer reeds than the reeds you play with a Classical sax mouthpiece. Also, in general, Jazz players are seeking a buzzier sound that the softer reed provides. Jazz mouthpieces are louder and brighter than Classical mouthpieces because of the smaller chamber of the Jazz mouthpieces. The larger tip opening of a Jazz mouthpiece also provides for some more volume of tone but mostly it assists in the bending of notes.
