The design of the D’Addario Select Jazz tenor mouthpiece was inspired by Jeff Coffin’s Freddie Gregory mouthpiece, which was an original Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe blank, and not an Otto Link. Jeff Coffin’s Freddie Gregory mouthpiece was not in its original state, having been refaced by Freddie himself at Jeff’s request at some point. These modifications to the original Super Deluxe resulted in a very unique model that D’Addario used as a baseline and made various design changes based on Jeff’s feedback as well as extensive market research. The chamber size and baffle shape remain somewhat similar to Jeff’s mouthpiece, but the facing, window, side rail and tip rail shapes all were modified. The D’Addario Select Jazz blank is slightly larger overall, with changes to the beak, side profiles, and the bore was modified and slightly tapered to adapt to the CNC machining used to make this mouthpiece. These changes resulted in greater machining consistency without sacrificing performance.
The D'addario Select Jazz mouthpiece is slight brighter in sound in the upper register, but this mouthpiece has overall character in terms of edge, warmth, core, good projection and flexibility. The intonation is consistent throughout all registers, and had great response throughout the registers and at different volumes.
