Theo Wanne MANTRA2 - Alto Saxophone - Vintified

£3,199.00
SKU SAX-AMVG

The NEW 2019 MANTRA 2 is an end-game horn! It features our proprietary titanium alloy neck with unique taper which creates a huge sound, easy altissimo and improved intonation. It has a Vintified™ body and gold lacquer keys.

Mantra means: A sound, or group of sounds, that leads the speaker to freedom. That is the intention with this saxophone!

Description

The bell-to-body brace has three fully captured points of contact with the body. It is far stronger than a traditional brace while allowing for previously unheard of vibratory freedom. Of course it also comes with kangaroo skin pads from Music Medic™. The MANTRA has many other innovations, which we keep confidential. However their benefit becomes obvious once you try the horn yourself!

SOUND

This is a HUGE & ALIVE sounding horn. Can sound like a vintage Selmer, but will take more and more as you blow harder too, so has a LOT more projection.

Perfect for all types of music!

DESIGN

Based off of vintage saxophone phonics, and updated with modern technology.

Designed by Theo Wanne, the foremost expert on the design and manufacturing of vintage and new mouthpieces and saxophones.

Review

This is a sax with a big sound and a lot of big ideas! While certainly leaning towards a brighter sound, this sax still has a lot of depth and colour to the tone, and can really project with little effort. The intonation is also great, even into the extremes of the instrument’s range which certainly gives credibility to Theo’s claim of “effortless altissimo”. If you’re a professional looking for a sax that can adapt to a wide range of contemporary styles then this could be the one for you! - Oren
