Theo Wanne GAIA 3 Tenor Hard Rubber 8 Mouthpiece (Ref 412)

£375.00

Theo Wanne GAIA 3 Tenor Hard Rubber 8 Mouthpiece (Ref 412)

Selling on behalf of current owner.

Good useable condition.

Includes: mouthpiece, ligature and tip protector cap plus box.

The GAIA3 Tenor Sax mouthpiece has been fully re-designed. It lends itself nicely to a traditional jazz taste, but due to the amazing flexibility and resonance it is at home in all styles of playing. This is the unique thin-body premium hard rubber version.

The new design features a proprietary ‘Shark-Gill Baffle’ which improves the airflow and opens up the sound.

Further internal modifications have been made to the baffle shape and the chamber.

These small modifications have been made to optimise air flow and offer a wider dynamic range.

Description

The GAIA 3 still uses a True Large Chamber, like most vintage tenor 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 tenor 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.

SOUND 

  • Modern projection with a full rich, fat, and robust sound.
