Overview

The AMBIKA 3 Tenor Mouthpiece is Theo Wanne's darkest mouthpiece with a deep, hauntingly gorgeous tone. The AMBIKA 3 has a full-bodied sound reminiscent of vintage 1940's mouthpieces, but with much improved projection, ease of play and dynamics.

The Shark Gill Baffle works on the physics principle of 'boundary layer effect', pulling the airstream closer to the floor. This allows the player to 'fill' the mouthpiece more, resulting in increased dynamics. The True Large Chamber is far more accurately produced than any other vintage and new mouthpieces due to superior machining, which means the design is exactly what Theo intended it to be.

The Metal AMBIKA is plated with 24K gold. The Hard Rubber AMBIKA uses real vintage style hard rubber just like the vintage mouthpieces of the 1940s-50s, and its new thin body allows the premium hard rubber to fully resonate, giving quite a fantastic sound. If you like the vintage sound, you will love the AMBIKA. The AMBIKA 3 has an even bigger, fuller sound than the AMBIKA 1 or 2, and greatly increased dynamics and sense of expression.

"The AMBIKA is WAY beyond the vintage mouthpieces. I was playing a vintage link for 20 years, but no more!" - Pat Rizzo (WAR, Sly and the Family Stone, Frank Sinatra)

"The AMBIKA is the only mouthpiece I'll now use! I can approximate an ol' school Coleman Hawkins/Sam Butera sound AND a modern Michael Brecker/Lenny Pickett sound by just by adjusting my embouchure." - Karl Hunter (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy)
