Description

The SHIVA 2 ‘The Destroyer’ soprano mouthpiece has power, edge and projection, all with big core, warmth and body! 

Marion Meadows

The SHIVA combines both a step and roll-over baffle.  It also has a small chamber akin to the vintage Selmer Soloist mouthpieces.   If you’ve been waiting for a small chamber Theo Wanne soprano mouthpiece, this is it!   The SHIVA power and body making it suitable for Rock n’ Roll, R&B.    Yet there is nothing ‘thin’ or ‘brittle’ about the sound, so it is also flexible for any type of music too.  Currently used by both Gerald Albright and Marion Meadows.

“The SHIVA soprano is unreal! Absolutely killin’. Its full of sound, with great response.  I love the feel of it!  It’s a winner!” – Gerald Albright (3 Grammy Nominations)

“I LOVE the Shiva! It is now my mouthpiece of choice!  Theo Wanne™ mouthpieces are the best mouthpieces in the world!” – Marion Meadows (12 Internationally Acclaimed Albums)

The SHIVA 2 Soprano is available in 24K gold plated brass and premium RED marbled hard rubber.  Of course, SHIVA just needs to be red!  Like all Theo Wanne™ products, the SHIVA 2 is made using state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technologies. You will receive the most consistent and highest quality mouthpiece available in history.

“Man, the Shiva soprano is a $%^&*!!!  Kudos to Theo on this creation! She screams all the way up into the altissimo register!  Wonderful!!!” – Mark Fox (Best of 2016 album award)

“Jazz music is a conversation. It’s Call and response as well as pure expression in true improvised New Orleans music. The music is the wave, you’re the surfer and the horn is the surfboard. We are all trying to catch that perfect wave every night.  I don’t want to think about my gear and I don’t want it to interfere with the process. I want it to perform like a locked in bass player where you just know is going to be in the pocket and it leaves me free to do my thing. The Shiva 9 on my soprano does just that.” – William Bua
