The GAIA Soprano has revolutionized the soprano world. It has modern projection, but a full rich, fat, and robust sound never before heard from a soprano mouthpiece. Theo has combined vintage and modern mouthpiece attributes for a breakthrough in soprano mouthpiece design.
The GAIA tends towards a traditional Jazz sound, but is quite versatile. The GAIA has a slight roll-over baffle, precision-sculpted inner sidewalls, and TW's True Large Chamber for a simply huge and alive vintage sound.
The GAIA hard rubber uses the highest quality, most resonant, hard rubber available today in saxophone mouthpieces. By optimizing manufacturing techniques and recipes for hard rubber manufactured in the 1940s and 50s by the Meyer Bros., Otto Link, and Henry Chedeville, the rich resonant sound previously only available in vintage mouthpieces is back.
The GAIA Soprano's True Large Chamber has broken new ground. Large chambered soprano mouthpieces where common in the first half the last century. They combined a large chamber with a low baffle and floor configuration. These made good classical mouthpieces, but they never really worked for the Jazz or Rock world.
The window/floor/baffle/chamber/side wall configuration is unique and represents the birth of a whole new world for the soprano saxophone. The GAIA soprano mouthpiece gives a sense of personal freedom and expression not possible before in a soprano mouthpiece.

Comments about Theo Wanne GAIA Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece:
Very freeblowing and warm. I was hesitant to buy because of the price but I'm glad I did. Great mouthpiece but to be so beautifully crafted it disappointedly does not include a mouthpiece cap.
