    Title

    Serious Straight-Ahead Jazz Mouthpiece – Not too Dark, Not Too Bright – Just Right.

    The Studio Jazz is a Classic Jazz Alto mouthpiece in the tradition of the Meyer Mouthpiece. Slightly darker with a little less top end the Studio Jazz still provides good edge and power. It has a solid core that has a lot of bottom in the tone. The Studio Jazz Alto has a 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 subtone. Good intonation is essential in an Alto saxophone mouthpiece and the Studio Jazz delivers excellent intonation across the range of the Alto sax.

      What makes the Studio Jazz Alto Better for Jazz?
    A full sound and better projection while maintaining a beautiful Alto sax sound are the benefits of the Studio Jazz Alto mouthpiece. In Jazz, the Altor has to cut through, but most straight ahead players don’t want a sound that is too shrill and cutting. The sound of Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley and Kenny Garret are some examples of the range of tone one might obtain from the Rousseau Studio Jazz Altor 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.

    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.
