Theo Wanne GAIA 3 Hard Rubber Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece

The GAIA 3 soprano mouthpiece has revolutionized the soprano world.

It has modern projection, but also a full rich, fat, and robust sound only found in a large chamber mouthpiece. The GAIA 3 has been further updated with TW’s proprietary new baffle design, for far more core and body to sound, while maintaining the big warm traditional sound the GAIA is known for!

For decades musicians asked Theo for the perfect large chamber soprano mouthpiece.   He modified vintage Buescher and Slant Otto Link (among other) vintage mouthpieces.  Each of these had wonderful characteristics, but none were the ‘whole package.’ So Theo designed the GAIA 3.  The feedback has been overwhelming relief from many players who finally found the mouthpiece giving them the sound they always desired.

Description

 

Jan Garbarek - TW Soprano Mouthpiece Square“And there it is! The soprano piece I´ve been longing for all these years! It sings in all registers, pp – ff, in tune, open yet focused, and fat sounding like a sax should be. The GAIA soprano is stunning, and suits me perfectly!” – Jan Garbarek (Keith Jarrett, George Russell, Grammy Nominee, 31 Internationally Acclaimed Albums)

The GAIA 3 still uses a True Large Chamber, like most vintage soprano mouthpieces made in the first half of last century. However, those mouthpieces combined a large chamber with a low baffle and floor configuration, which made good classical mouthpieces, but never really worked for contemporary playing.  The GAIA 3’s unique design opens up a whole new world for the soprano saxophone.  It maintains the ‘vintage’ beauty of sound, but adds depth and versatility never before possible.

Like all Theo Wanne™ mouthpieces, they are manufactured with accuracy higher than any other mouthpiece, vintage or new, and uses the highest quality materials in its construction.  The GAIA 3 is truly revolutionary in bringing the vintage sound up to date both in design and construction.
