Theo Wanne GAIA 4 Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece

The GAIA 4 alto is fully re-designed!   It still has the classic alto sound, but is so much more full and alive sounding!!!!

GAIA 4 Shark-Gill Baffle™

The result of the GAIA 4’s new design is an expressiveness, and creativity-of-play, never before experienced in a traditional sounding alto mouthpiece!  It includes and updated version of TW’s proprietary Shark-Gill Baffle™, and the newly designed Large-Stadium Chamber™, which is a technologically advanced version of a traditional large chamber.   Once you spend some time on it, you will find a dynamic range and flexibility not found in any other alto mouthpiece.

 

Description

George Young

“The GAIA alto is the answer to a saxophonist’s dream!  Over my sixty years of performing in either recording studios, or performing live concerts, I can finally do it all with one mouthpiece instead of carrying several pieces around. The only mouthpiece I’ve played in seven decades with EVERYTHING! Without any question, it’s a ‘sonic miracle!’”George Young (John Lennon, Rolling Stones, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Madonna)

Large chambers have been widely explored in the history of tenor mouthpieces, but very little has been done with alto mouthpieces. The GAIA 4 Alto mouthpiece opens up a whole new world for the alto saxophone.  Not only is the DESIGN revolutionary, but it uses TW’s  state of the art manufacturing and premium materials so that design is made right!  The GAIA 4 has evolved from the GAIA 1 with significantly more core and body to the sound.
