The Chromatic Revolution Revisited
At first glance, the striking red-to-gold opalescent finish of the CX12 Jazz is hard to overlook.
However, there’s more to this baby than meets the eye.
Based on the brilliant and successful design of the CX12 Black, the CX12 Jazz boasts a narrower mouthpiece radius, which makes it even more comfortable to play and facilitates single reed note bending for greater expression, allowing you to break with chromatic convention and redefine your creative possibilities. If you want a loud, responsive chromatic that offers you killer tone and maximum punch, it doesn’t get much better than this!
