Experience unlimited power!

Theo's most energetic mouthpiece just got an upgrade... By building on the success of previous models, the Theo Wanne Shiva 3 soprano sax mouthpiece 9 is the must-have mouthpiece of Rock n' Roll and R&B musicians.

Crafted from quality brass and then plated in 24K gold, the Shiva 3 mouthpiece is sure to be the jewel of your saxophone. The addition of the proprietary "Shark Gill" chamber will enhance projection while adding a hint of edge to your tone.

Reminescent of vintage Selmer Soloist mouthpieces, the Shiva 3 boasts a small chamber. And when combined with the uniquely shaped long step baffle, the Shiva 3 produces a sensational tone which is almost flirtatious by nature. Looking for a mouthpiece that can shatter glass and knock down walls? Then the Shiva 3 is for you.

Extraordinary construction

Similar to all other Theo Wanne mouthpiece, the Shiva 3 soprano sax mouthpiece is manufactured using advanced machining techniques to ensure every mouthpiece is exactly the same. The small proprietary 'Shark Gill' chamber is the same size as the bore producing a core sound with plenty of power. Like other professional mouthpieces, the Shiva 3 is crafted from high-quality brass to ensure the best possible quality. Once the Shiva 3 has been finished, it is professionally plated with 24K gold with a reticulated finish to enhance airflow. The logo has special highlights for a truly luxurious finish.

The Shiva 3 design

The Theo Wanne Shiva 3 soprano mouthpiece is a professional mouthpiece for saxophonists that require a powerful sound. The tip found on the Shiva 3 metal 9 mouthpiece requires more air compared to the 7 model, but can produce a wider tone. This amount of resistance is essential for producing the large sound required for a Rock n' Roll tone. The tip holds good intonation and only requires a small amount of effort to bend notes when required.

Included accessories

The Theo Wanne Shiva 3 soprano saxophone mouthpiece includes everything you need to look after the mouthpiece. The included beautiful leatherette case will ensure that the mouthpiece is always protected when travelling. The integrated two-point contact 24K gold plated Liberty Ligature makes sure the reed is always held securely. The Shiva 3 also includes a reed replacer cap and user replaceable bite pads. Every Theo Wanne mouthpiece is supplied with a unique serial number.
