The deep chamber balances out the steep baffle giving the BURNIN’ mouthpiece a lush warmth and sonic depth. This combination creates a complex and beautiful tone.

Manufactured in Savannah, Georgia by Jody Jazz.


Expert hand finishing combined with state of the art CNC machining result in the highest quality and most consistent mouthpieces available anywhere.


Genuine proprietary Jody Jazz hard rubber for the look, feel and sound of great vintage mouthpieces.


Reed friendly and easy to play. Each of the available tip openings were meticulously designed and all play like champs!


The precision and attention of detail to these elements are key to any great playing mouthpiece.

Hello Jay.

WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!!

Received my Burnin’ alto mouthpiece this week and what a pleasure!  It is so responsive and it is giving me much pleasure in playing.  I know this may sound weird, but I have confidence in it because of its consistency from what I am hearing and feeling.  Playing is more comfortable and relaxing.

Thank you!

“I just received the Alto Burnin’ #5 mouthpiece. I put a reed on it and began to play. WOW WOW WOW It’s awesome! Thank you very much. It’s going to make playing the Better Alto Sax much easier and more enjoyable.”

“To my fellow alto sax players… please do yourself a favor and grab this BURNIN’ mouthpiece. Make sure you pick up the ring ligature (amazing response with it). This free-blowing piece gives me all the sizzle and body that a hard hitting sax player would want. I’ll be selling my other high end pieces as this BURNIN’ piece just replaced them all.”

“Jay, you are truly the best teacher I have no regrets in joining the full suite of courses. Following your instructions and achieving at least 75% of each lesson was sufficient ot make me feel how much I have improved since I got my alto earlier this month. As you say in your videos, 15 mins a day of dedicated set time created this difference!”

“I must say the further I go into this course the more I am impressed with the process of teaching. I have been a drummer and guitar player for over 45 years, self taught, play in bands, learned clarinet as a kid but went no further. Introduced to sax at age 13 by an uncle who played professional but I was attracted to the drums instead. BUT now I love the sax, your method is making it easy… Thank you so much!”

“I joined the course because I really enjoyed and learned a lot from your free lessons. My subscription was to contribute to your funds in making more great videos. After going through the contents of your course, it turns out to be better than expected. Keep up the great job.”
