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 range on the Shiva 3 metal mouthpieces span from 6 to 9 depending on how big and wide you want the tone to go, but obviously at the expense of greater effort as you go up the scale. A large tip is recommended if you require a plenty of resistance essential for producing the large sound required for a Rock n' Roll tone. These larger tips hold 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.
