I started refacing and making custom mouthpieces over two decades ago.    I remember the excitement musicians felt when I made just the right mouthpiece for them.  Professionals would acclaim how they finally found their sound.  And students who were struggling in their passion would often find a new enthusiasm in their music.   It was this type response that made realize just how important the saxophone mouthpiece was.

When I first made production mouthpieces, I refused to make anything less than history’s finest mouthpieces.  This was very expensive to do.  It broke my heart that many musicians could not afford my mouthpieces. 

Since then I vowed to make a quality production line of mouthpieces at a price everyone could afford.    It took me over 10 years to create the right designs, at the quality I needed, and a price everyone could afford.  The ELEMENTS series of mouthpieces are those mouthpieces.   I couldn’t be more excited and proud!   It is my hope the ELEMENT mouthpieces bring many musicians tons of inspiration in their music!

The FIRE is the first release in the ELEMENTS series.  As its name would suggest it is fiery, bright and alive.  It is perfect for Jazz, R&B and Rock & Roll!    – Theo Wanne
