Theo Wanne GAIA HR 7* Tenor Mouthpiece (Ref 238)****SOLD****

Theo Wanne GAIA HR 7* Tenor Mouthpiece (Ref 238)****SOLD****

Selling on behalf of the Estate of the late great jazz player and teacher, George Galway R.I.P..

Here’s a great opportunity to take ownership of this Theo Wanne Tenor sax mouthpiece.

This was George’s latest setup, purchased new here at The Sax Shack, and I remember how impressed he was with it when he compared it to a number of alternatives.

Excellent useable condition, a little faded but no damage. Original ligature plus Rovner 2R ligature and cap. Screwdriver and alternative Copper pressure plate. Boxed.

Includes: mouthpiece, original ligature, Rovner 2R ligature and cap. Boxed.

Description

This mouthpiece is part of the Estate of George Galway who passed away aged 79 in October 2020.

He began playing the saxophone professionally while still in his teens, as part of many dance showbands in late-1950s Belfast. 

He moved to Manchester in the 1970s and began a successful career as a music teacher, but still gigged constantly all around the country. 

George didn’t slow down in any way until about 2015, and having lived the world of jazz for nearly seven decades, he had built up an immense repertoire and wealth of knowledge about the saxophone instrument, with its many brands, series, metals, construction and playing techniques, mouthpieces and so on.
He carefully selected each piece over the years – both for their monetary investment value, as well as the personal joy he got from using them on one of his many saxes.
