This is from his website describing the mouthpiece:
http://www.jodyjazz.com/dv.chicago.sax.mouthpiece.html

"Phi Proportions - Or the Golden Section Proportioning. The proportions that are found in the Stradivarius Violin, the Nautilus shell, the dolphin, human beings, the Ancient Pyramids and much more, are used for the first time on a saxophone mouthpiece. These proportions result in a chamber that increases harmonics making the sound bigger and richer. For more information about Phi, visit at: http://www.goldennumber.net/

I talked to a sax player this weekend who owns one and he says they are fantastic.

It's a Chi with Phi proportions. Fun with Greek letters.

FWIW, while I like the Phi marketing angle, I don't necessarily think that if you design something with the "golden proportion" it's going to be better. In other words, if it's a good mouthpiece, people will buy it. If not, they won't.

For $575, it should also wash my car and mow the lawn. But I'm a cheapskate.
Good grief, that's more'n what I paid for either of my Marigauxes (which came, I have to admit, without a mouthpiece. Maybe that's why...)
 
I just got a Jody Jazz DV baritone piece,yes it is expensive BUT...it's out of this world...big fat sound, super fast response,real cut and a beautiful piece of engineering... It's the biz, worth every penny! :p
