The AMBIKA is our darkest mouthpiece. It has a deep, hauntingly gorgeous tone that only poetry can describe.

Our TRUE Large Chamber (much like the vintage mouthpieces of the 1940s but technically superior due to our patent-pending machining technology) ensures an even warmer and fatter sound than the great classics of yesteryear.

The AMBIKA is a great classic jazz mouthpiece with a true vintage sound. Its incredible fat and full sound will engulf you and your audience!

The AMBIKA has no baffle at all. Amazingly, with its HUGE chamber and NO baffle, it is not stuffy or thin. If you like the vintage New York Otto Link sound, then your will love the AMBIKA.

“Wow...that´s it!! No kidding: This mouthpiece is just fantastic: Very colorful, dark and fat even when it´s getting played soft, big, big low tones, the highs don´t get thin, absolutely perfect! The playability is great, the sound is really haunting, you didn´t promise too much!” Joerg Kaufmann

 

“You haven't scored a home run with the New AMBIKA, you've hit a grand slam! I am totally blown away. It's time I start selling off my quite large collection of mouthpieces.” -Doug Moffet


“The AMBIKA takes me to heaven every time I play the saxophone. I just can’t take this mouthpiece out of my mouth anymore! Thanx so much for your talent, vision and skills!” -Frank


“My first reaction was "Why ... this is haunting!" It truly has a distinct deepness that is lovely. Great lows that just flow out. Clear altissimo. Great intonation. Reed friendly.  I can ‘feel’ the mouthpiece which allows me to control my tone and projection more. So ... looks like I have a keeper! Is it worth the $$$??? I sure could have saved a lot more than I have spent on the AMBIKA if I had found it sooner!” -William


“The AMBIKA produces the warmest, fullest sound I have gotten with any mouthpiece. Yes, even haunting. Intonation is there, it's easy to play and I don't have to struggle with the horn. I was able to lay back and just focus on what I was trying to do. The proof is in the sound.” -Joe


“Theo Wanne mouthpieces truly are THE new standard in tone production for the saxophone. I consider Theo a true genius at what he does, in that he has found a parallel approach at achieving a vintage sound--not by simply copying great mouthpieces, but rather studying the concepts of sound production and finding his own unique approach to producing a superior sound. Theo, thank you for your artistry and commitment to furthering our art, because we can’t do what we do otherwise. I just have to say what an honor it is to be able to be involved in the promotion of Theo Wanne mouthpieces.” -Mark Hynes


"I just played 10 hours and I still can't believe the Ambika. I feel like I am wrapped in a warm cocoon playing with my daughters in mind. It is my love for them which plays!!! -Oliver R.

 

“The AMBIKA has a beautiful Fat, Dark tone. Quite like Grossmans tone of the last 15 years. If you are looking for Lush, but still with power, then this is what you are after.....reminds me of the best BD Hollywood that I've ever played!!” -Simon

 

“I did initially have some trepidation about the price, but I am hugely pleased that I got it. It has a full rich dark tone (similar to the Otto Link NY) and is easy blowing. The lowest notes are particularly easy with this beautifully crafted mouthpiece." -Tony K

 

"I still can’t say too many good things about your AMBIKA mouthpiece. It has made playing my tenor such a joy. After receiving the AMBIKA my tenor is the only horn I have played. I started playing the tenor back in 1960 so you can figure out that I’m no youngster. I retired and became serious about playing again in 2007. I think every saxophone player has a sound in their head that they work to produce. I found my sound when I played your AMBIKA mouthpiece. Not only do I get the sound the ease at which I am able to produce each note amazes me. I have never played a finer mouthpiece".

 

I'm writing just to say thanks for creating a Fantastic mouthpiece as the AMBIKA.  I am blown away by how easy the mouthpiece plays in all the registers of my sax.  And the intonation is great!  Theo, Thanks for making my life as a sax player better! - Carlos Serrano

 

"The AMBIKA has changed my life!! Thanx guys! - Omar Kabir

 

Wow!  I've been playing the AMBIKA and I love it more every day. Folks in my band the Rusty Prose all love the sound. The AMBIKA is mellow, like Lester Young with a beautiful tone, yet it is capable of rocking out with the Rolling Stones, Talking Heads, and Nirvana with the best of ‘em. Then when we do a beautiful John Lennon ballad, it just sings. Gosh I love it!!!!!    I have my Masters degree on Clarinet from the UW and know a little bit about tone!!!!!  - Kathryn Pjetursdottir

 

 

“The AMBIKA was a total experience.  I was expecting it to be dull with little projection. To the contrary, it played with a tone a la the Texas Tenors of old. It had tremendous range and flexibility.” – Paul Harr Paul Haar (JazzTimes Magazine September 2009 Review)
