The Chedeville mouthpiece company, formerly of Charles Chedeville, the great Parisien mouthpiece maker, has been revitalised under the ownership and guidance of Jody Espina and JodyJazz Inc. They are producing high quality classical mouthpieces once more! Their new range, including the Chedeville Elite Series Bb Clarinet and the Chedeville RC Series Saxophone mouthpieces, have been developed through months of research and analysis of legendary vintage Chedeville mouthpieces, combined with years of designing and producing high-quality, consistent, mouthpieces.
While JodyJazz Inc pull inspiration from great mouthpieces of the past, they hold a much more contemporary view with regards to their environmental impact and carbon
footprint. As such their range of durable, reusable and aesthetically pleasing Bamboo canisters offer a great alternative to the common plastic/cardboard of most company’s – they really stand out! JodyJazz recommend keeping reeds or other accessories in the canister, should you not be using it for your mouthpiece, making it a truly environmentally conscious and handsome storage solution.
Jody’s new range of Chedeville mouthpieces are manufactured entirely at their factory in Savanna, Georgia using CNC machines and artisan mouthpiece finishers to create fantastic quality mouthpieces. The company is focusing on consistency as its number one priority, and to ensure this they have instituted what they claim to be the most rigorous and precise measurements and play tasting in the industry. The Chedeville line will ultimately offer a complete selection of Classical Clarinet & Classical Saxophone Mouthpieces.
