As the foremost expert in vintage mouthpieces, Theo Wanne has taken his extensive experience to make the vintage sound even better. The GAIA 2 is updated with far more core and body to the sound, while maintaining the big warm traditional sound the GAIA is known for.

Robert Martin, who was Frank Zappa‘s saxophonist for 20 years had this to say about the GAIA 2:

“Just – wow! Theo, you nailed The GAIA 2 Tenor Mouthpiece! Everything I loved about the original GAIA is still there, along with a vast new playground of expressive possibilities to explore. It’s still round and warm, yet so easy to get just the right amount of grit and bite if you want it.  It has an immediacy in the response everywhere on the horn. Every pitch seems to center and speak instantly, making fast runs sound amazingly clean and precise. Theo, how did you do that?   Furthermore, if Dexter Gordon were with us today, I bet he’d be playing a Theo Wanne™ GAIA 2!” – Robert Martin

 

The GAIA 2 tends towards a traditional Jazz taste, but is quite versatile, as it is also played by Karl Denson touring with the Rolling Stones, and by Leon Silva on Arianna Grande's song "Problem" , and Ian Hendrickson-Smith with Ed Sheeran.  The GAIA 2 has a medium roll-over baffle, precision-sculpted inner sidewalls, and our True Large Chamber for a simply huge and alive vintage sound.

The GAIA 2’s True Large Chamber is very much like the vintage mouthpieces of the 1940s but the design has been further evolved, both in design and with our leading manufacturing technologies.
