What Is the DV NY Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The DV NY for Baritone Sax will appeal to the Straight Ahead player looking for the best playing and sounding mouthpiece baritone that he or she can find. The mouthpiece is based on our popular DV model but has several modifications, the most significant being a deep chamber which results is a dark warm beautiful baritone saxophone sound. We've had great response from "Link" players looking for a more free blowing mouthpiece. The DV NY is for Baritone sax players that want a beautiful rich traditional bari sax sound and also want a free blowing mouthpiece. Effortless Vintage Sound
Jody Espina has introduced the concept of Golden Section Proportions to the art of high-end saxophone mouthpiece design. This perfect chamber/bore/facing combination will result in an extraordinary playing experience for you.
The DV NY produces a darker, less bright tone than the contemporary sound of the DV. The deep baffle/chamber design of the DV NY produce a beautiful Classic Jazz Baritone Saxophone sound reminiscent of the masters of the 50’s and 60’s. Think Mulligan, Harry Carney, Pepper Adams etc. DV NY vs. DV (How are they different?)
Both mouthpieces have a full resonant sound due to the secondary window. The DV will have more projection and be brighter due to the raised floor of the chamber while the DV NY will have a more traditional Jazz sound and projection due to the deep full chamber. We often recommend trying both mouthpieces if you are not sure which model would suit you.Special Notes on The DV NY Bari Saxophone Mouthpiece
Be prepared to use or at least try harder reeds than you normally do due to the free blowing nature of the DV NY’s and the DV’s. This may or may not be the case for you. The great benefit of this is that a harder reed lasts longer and a harder reed helps the altissimo range. For this same reason, there is a small possibility that you may want to try a slightly more open tip than normal. For example, Otto Link # 7 players will usually play a DV NY 7*.
Also please note that if you are coming from a bright mouthpiece like the Dukoff or Guardala it is very likely that the DV instead of the DV NY will be more to your liking. This is because the DV while having a lot of power and projection still has a lot of bottom in the sound. The DV NY has plenty of bottom in the sound but it does not have as much projection as the DV. In other words if you are playing a lot of gigs where you need a lot of volume you may want to choose the DV. We often recommend trying both mouthpieces if you are not sure which model would suit you. What Does The DV NY Do?
