“The GAIA was a game changer for me. It makes me sound and play at my best!”
Theo Wanne offers the highest quality of craftsmanship there is and he has succeeded in designing a mouthpiece for any type of player. I play my favorite, the GAIA, on both tenor and soprano and they give a timeless Otto Link-like sound, but playing easier, staying better in tune, sounding fantastic through the whole register and still being able to open up and scream when being pushed! And with the GAIA 4, my sound has evolved to a totally new level. I have never connected with a mouthpiece in this way. I feel that I can make the mouthpiece respond with all kinds of nuances in such an effortless way that I focus more on the moment and being immersed in the musical performance, rather than fighting the mouthpiece to answer to my playing. Thank you Theo for creating these pieces that help us get the sound we are chasing!

Q:What is your internal experience when you feel REALLY connected to the music? A:When I’m truly immersed in the music, everything comes so naturally. It’s an euphoric state where everything is in its right place and all the musicians are building each other up, creating an unity that unlocks a new musical level. The crowd feels it, we feel it, and it creates those unique moments. When I connect with the music on a high level, time stops and the moment kind of lasts forever, and at the same time, there are so many things happening so fast. It makes me forget about my critical side and takes my playing to a place where it almost feels as natural as breathing.
