    Serious Straight-Ahead Jazz Mouthpiece – Not too Dark, Not Too Bright – Just Right.
    The Studio Jazz is a Classic Jazz Tenor Mouthpiece in the tradition of the Otto Link Mouthpiece. Slightly brighter with a little more top end, the Studio Jazz Tenor provides a good edge and power with a solid core that has a lot of bottom in the tone. The Studio Jazz Tenor has very good response with an even scale in all registers and it’s easy to play. The Studio Jazz Series delivers great response in the low register when playing soft (full tone) and in sub tone. Good intonation is essential in a saxophone mouthpiece and the Studio Jazz delivers excellent intonation across the range of the Tenor Sax.

    What makes the Studio Jazz Tenor Better for Jazz?
    A full sound and better projection while maintaining a beautiful Tenor sax sound are the benefits of the Studio Jazz Tenor Mouthpiece. In Straight Ahead Jazz, the Tenor should be a full throated big sound, but most modern playing situations demand a certain amount of projection and cut that the Studio Jazz Provides. The sound of Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and Stan Getz are some examples of the range of tone one might obtain from the Rousseau Studio Jazz Tenor 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 mouthpiece 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.

    Rousseau mouthpieces are made from traditional hard Rubber and manufactured 100% in the USA and then expertly hand finished by our artisans at the JodyJazz Factory on the crucial and indispensable final details of the mouthpiece such as baffle and tip rail.
