Theo Wanne’s GAIA 4 is a Charismatic mouthpiece that has taken my playing to new Heights!!! When I listen to all my favorite recordings of Saxophone players, my sound is in front of the band like a vocalist would be, and my Gaia 4 has a great presence to let all hear all the nuances in and of the sound. The result is the Lush combination of a powerful core sound, with an instant attack and full projection. There is something very exciting about the Gaia 4, It has an incredible amount of flexibility that just can’t be beat. Throughout the years of hunting, I have found one that has a perfect balance in all aspects of what todays player needs in a mouthpiece. It is a compelling mouthpiece for the future and beyond! and not some guys copy of an old classic, the GAIA 4 is destined to be come a Classic. Just thinking about the SHARK GILL BAFFLE ignites the fire within me! This mouthpiece is both powerful and what I would call Commanding!! The Large Stadium Chamber provides a free and projecting sound and gives it plenty of power to project without losing the warmth of the tonal center.
