    Hi, in this page I have put together some mouthpiece video reviews that I have done over the years. I have just completely rebuilt my website, I hope you enjoy it!
  3. Tenor mpc
    A while back I was looking at the Theo Wanne serial number guide on his website (can't find it anymore) to see the run of my Durga for baritone as I got it used, and I saw that it said that Theo's first run of Ambika's were made for classical playing. I've searched for information everywhere and...

    Are these mouthpieces worth the asking price? Does any model sound like a dukoff? Do they play well on a vintage sax like a super-20?
  5. Ligatures
    Hello! I've recently ran into trouble while trying some different brands of reeds on my Theo Wanne GAIA piece for Soprano. My "Enlightened Ligature" has been unscrewing itself and moving while I'm playing, which is obviously very frustrating. Has anyone found a suitable replacement ligature...

    Has anyone had experience with Theo Wanne's blue A.R.T. mouthpieces on tenor? I searched for Theo Wanne A.R.T. and got no results, so I figured I'd ask the experts. Looking to get a Shiva A.R.T. piece for my tenor, but curious to know if anyone uses one and their thoughts on it. I currently...
  7. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    I just got my Theo Wanne Mantra mouthpiece today and I cannot get over how awesome it is. I sound more like me, and my dark sound has brightened up a bit, not enough to sound like Kenny G, but enough to overcome the darkness of the horn I'm using (Eastman 642 gold lacquer). As my wife said, "now...

    I've recently purchased a Link STM 5* for my Bari and when I was looking for a metal mpc, I noticed the very well known ''Theo Wanne'' mpcs. Are these worth it?? It seems like 795 is alot for a mpc when you can get the same out of a link or dukoff.:|:|:|

    I just bought my first Theo Wanne piece about a week ago after hearing great things about it here on sotw. After a life long search for an alto piece with the tone, playability and projection I was looking for, I have finally found it in the form of my new metal Kali #8. As a matter of fact...

    Hi there, I'm play testing / experimenting with my new Gaia 6* hard rubber mouthpiece. Theo is the facing curve king. The mouthpiece is so user friendly from the top to the bottom of the sax. The sound has a nice mix of lows, low mids, and high mid frequencies. I would prefer I could keep the...

    Hi there, Looking for a good tenor sax mouthpiece. Theo Wanne has a sale: I play 6* and I was wondering if I should consider Gaia HR, Ambika HR, or Brahma HR. I normally play metal and they have Brahma 6*...

    I have yet to find a way to CAP my Theo Wanne Gaia (tenor) with the reed on. Does anyone know of a cap that fits properly? I have seen some machined hacks -- but am looking to avoid that. Help???
  20. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hey, folks. I'm headed to college soon as a jazz major, and I was wondering which of the two mouthpieces (Gaia or Ambika) is the best for straight ahead jazz and blues? I'm currently playing on a Durga 8, and Im just looking for something more appropriate for a darker, more bluesy sound.
