Theo Wanne GAIA 4 Tenor Gold Metal Mouthpiece

The GAIA 4 tenor does everything previous GAIA tenor mouthpieces did, but with an incredible CORE to the sound!

GAIA 4 Shark-Gill Baffle™

GAIA 4 has evolved into work of art and is now the most technically advanced mouthpiece Theo has ever made.  The Shark Gill™ baffle has been updated, and Theo’s completely new Large-Stadium Chamber™ added.   It takes the huge, warm and free sound the previous GAIA mouthpiece have become famous and iconic for, to a whole new level. It has greatly increased the ‘presence’ and core of the mouthpiece.  It still has the large chamber sound, but no ‘hollowness’….just fullness!

The GAIA is played by Karl Denson touring with the Rolling Stones, by Leon Silva on Ariana Grande’s song ‘Problem’.  Hear the song ‘HERE’. , and Ian Hendrickson-Smith with Ed Sheeran.  Robert Martin, who was Frank Zappa’s saxophonist for 20 years had this to say about the GAIA:

Description

Robert Martin

“Just – wow! Theo, you nailed The GAIA Tenor Mouthpiece! It has a vast playground of expressive possibilities. It’s round and warm, yet easy to get the right amount of grit and bite.  It has an immediacy of response everywhere on the horn. Every pitch is centered and speaks instantly.  Fast runs sound amazingly clean and precise. Theo, how did you do that?   Furthermore, if Dexter Gordon were with us today, I bet he’d be playing a Theo Wanne™ GAIA!” – Robert Martin (Frank Zappa for 20 years)

The GAIA 4 lends itself well to a traditional Jazz taste, but due to its amazing flexibility, it is at home in any style of playing.   It comes in 24K gold plated or a unique thin-body premium hard rubber which has mazing vibratory qualities.

The GAIA 4 has an updated medium roll-over Shark Gill Baffle™, precision-sculpted inner sidewalls, and TW’s newly created Large-Stadium Chamber™, which is a technologically advanced version of a traditional large chamber.

Take a close look at it’s baffles, rails, and chambers™, you will see they are manufactured with a quality and accuracy higher than any other mouthpiece ever made, vintage or new!

“Having tried many types of mouthpieces over the years, Theo Wanne products embody all the great qualities; tone, projection and color. His mouthpieces are one of kind.”Dwayne Dugger (currently with Bruno Mars; recorded Uptown Funk on the GAIA)
