A revolution in Large Chamber alto mouthpieces!
Large chamber mouthpieces can often be found within the soprano and tenor family, but aren't often represented within altos. This is because, usually, a large chamber piece counteracts the tonal qualities that make an alto so special. All of the great pieces from bygone eras have been either medium or small chambered.
The Wanne has taken over two decades of expertise and has successfully created the large chamber mouthpiece for alto saxophone. The advanced Large-Stadium Chamber™ partnered with his innovative Shark-Gill Baffle™, which takes inspiration from how sharks gills process air from water, to help air move quickly and consistently through the mouthpiece. Overall, this creates a tone with much more body than a traditional alto sound, but without any unnecessary tubbiness.

“The GAIA alto is the answer to a saxophonist’s dream! Over my sixty years of performing in either recording studios, or performing live concerts, I can finally do it all with one mouthpiece instead of carrying several pieces around. The only mouthpiece I’ve played in seven decades with EVERYTHING! Without any question, it’s a ‘sonic miracle!'” – George Young (John Lennon, Rolling Stones, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Madonna)
