This mouthpiece was inspired by a famous Doc Severinsen Jet-Tone given to me by Tony Scodwell (who performed with and was road manager for Doc Severinsen’s Big Band for many years). The rim is semi-round, not too wide, and has some good undercut going into the cup. The cup is medium in depth (like Bach C, or slightly more shallow). The entrance to the throat is open, so it yields plenty of air flow for a nice big sound. The Legends JT blank is a perfect balance: enough mass to enhance slotting with a big core, but not so much mass that the sound won’t sizzle! Although this design was inspired by a piece played by the legendary Doc Severinsen, this is not an exact copy. The JT DS has the Legends enhanced throat (#27), enhanced throat cylinder length, and the Legends S backbore. Slotting is excellent with the JT DS. This piece is well suited for both legit and lead playing.
