"Before you even get your chops on this mouthpiece you can see it's something special, with its gold insignia on the back, complete with the new Enlightened ligature. On it's first blow I was immediately struck with a very responsive and pleasant core sound, a sound full of depth and tonal scope. This was also very consistent through the range. It has to be said that there aren't too many very large chamber mouthpieces around, and of those that do exist, not many are this accurately made. There is also just the hint of a baffle in there and this helps to give the tone a slight lift and definition. This is the kind of mouthpiece that would appeal to experienced players who are moderately satisfied with their current set-up - give this a go and the chances are you'll have found the answer!" Jim@sax.co.uk

SOUND- Built to outplay Theo's very best Vintage Otto Link. Theo succeeded!

STYLE- Full, rich and fat traditional sound with a hint of edge!

DESIGN- Medium Roll-Over Baffle combined with our precision crafted

The GAIA Soprano has revolutionized the soprano world. It has modern projection, but a full rich, fat, and robust sound never before heard from a soprano mouthpiece. Theo has profoundly combined vintage and modern mouthpiece design for a breakthrough in soprano mouthpiece design. 

The GAIA tends towards a traditional Jazz taste, but is quite versatile like the AMMA. The GAIA has a slight roll-over baffle, precision-sculpted inner sidewalls, and our True Large Chamber for a simply huge and alive vintage sound.

The GAIA hard rubber uses BY FAR the highest quality, most resonant, hard rubber available today in saxophone mouthpieces. By optimizing manufacturing techniques and recipes for hard rubber manufactured in the 1940s and 50s by the Meyer Bros., Otto Link, and Henry Chedeville, the rich resonant sound previously only available in vintage mouthpieces is BACK! There has never been a better hard rubber sax mouthpiece made….EVER! See the difference!

The GAIA Soprano’s True Large Chamber has broken new ground. Large chambered soprano mouthpieces where common in the first half the last century. They combined a large chamber with a low baffle and floor configuration. These made good classical mouthpieces, but they never really worked for the Jazz or Rock world. 

The GAIA Soprano mouthpiece opens up a whole new world for the soprano saxophone. The window/floor/baffle/chamber/side wall configuration is totally unique and is the birth of a whole new world for the soprano saxophone!!! The GAIA soprano mouthpiece truly gives a sense of personal freedom and expression not possible before in a soprano mouthpiece. And because they are manufactured with accuracy higher than any other mouthpiece, vintage or new, the GAIA is truly revolutionary in bringing the vintage sound up to date both in design and construction.
