What is the DV NY Metal Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece?
The DV NY for Alto Sax will appeal to the Straight Ahead player looking for the best playing and sounding mouthpiece 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. All tests with players have been extremely positive and we've had great response from "Link" and "Meyer" players. And most importantly, the DV NY has become my main alto mouthpiece. The DV NY occupies a similar place as the ESP but we think that players who like a wider mouthpiece in the mouth, and a more spread sound will choose the DV NY. Players who like more of a Berg Larsen focused sound and a thinner profile piece may prefer the ESP.

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 Alto sound reminiscent of the masters of the 40's, 50’s and 60’s.

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 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
Due to the free blowing nature due to the precise facing curve of the DV NY Alto and all the DV's, be prepared for the possibility of using a harder reed than you normally do. 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.

Also please note that if you are coming from a bright mouthpiece like the Dukoff, Lakey or Beechler 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.

About the patch on the DV NY:
The beak of this mouthpiece is thin which allows for more vibration and contributes to the spread of the sound or what I call sound diffusion. A thin beak does not allow us to put a patch the way the DV has. We provide a a clear patch which feels very comfortable. For those of you who think that this may be a problem, I ask you to try the piece so that you can see for yourself.

These are really designed and built to perfect specs. I've ordered a few things from Jody over the years and they all arrive perfectly machined and playing great! These are excellent mouthpieces, and there are so many options that you can certainly find what you're looking for. I love these mouthpieces, and I own them for Sorpano, Alto, Tenor, and Bari!!!
