"Many professional musicians asked for a mouthpiece that sounded and played like the old Otto Link," said Rocco (Rocky) Giglio, jj Babbitt's president and chief operating officer.
Giglio attributes this success to the company's focus on the expansion of its national and world wide distributor base; ongoing relationships with professional musicians who provide valuable product feedback, and on dependable, superior quality products.

He plays with the Jazz Assemblage and has played with A Cut Above and The Nostalgics.
Rocco (Rocky) Giglio, vice president of operations, attributed the increase in sales to the company establishing closer working relationships with their worldwide distributors, developing more efficient production management, and streamlining cost accounting measures. "In order to better facilitate orders and maintain a consistent workforce, we collaborated with our distributors to create and follow stricter production schedules," Giglio said. "Having a clear idea of how many mouthpieces would be needed from each of our six product lines through the year, enabled us to gear production to our customers' demands better than ever before. Giglio further noted that work was steady at jj Babbitt all year.
"Our customers help us improve quality by providing constant feedback," Giglio noted. "We give customers what they want."
Giglio further attributed strong sales to Babbitt's long-time popular selling Otto Link and Meyer lines as well as to its newest mouthpiece lines: Hite Premier and J & D Hite.
Sales of these products jumped dramatically In 2006, Giglio credited the increase to fast delivery and turnaround time.
