GAIA CLARINET MOUTHPIECE

 

The classic clarinet mouthpiece has finally been updated!   The GAIA clarinet shows the innovation we've come to expect from the world mouthpiece expert of mouthpiece design, Theo Wanne.  

 

"With total confidence I can say Theo has created the best clarinet mouthpiece in history! This mouthpiece has dimensions of sound that brings out and crystallizes every aspect of the clarinet. Many people who have not enjoyed the clarinet before....will now love the instrument! With this mouthpiece the clarinet has been re-birthed to a new level!" - Tim Price

 

The GAIA design is based on the great vintage mouthpieces by Frank Kaspar, Henry Chedeville, and Kal Opperman.   Yet Theo  took his decades of mouthpiece design knowledge to maximize the airflow of these designs to create a freedom of play and breadth of tone so big only a
Bass Clarinet could compare. Because it maintains the fundamental beauty of the classic clarinet mouthpiece it is appropriate for all types of music from classical to jazz. To hear more about the design click the video link.

 

Theo Wanne™ clarinet mouthpieces are manufactured to the same legendary standards as the rest of the Theo Wanne™ saxophone mouthpiece line.   They use the world's most advanced manufacturing, CAD designs, and full five-axis machining, and every mouthpiece is made from a solid bar of the highest quality hard rubber right in his factory in Bellingham, USA.

    The GAIA clarinet mouthpiece is totally awesome! What an even, open and full sounding mouthpiece!  It makes the clarinet sparkle from the bottom to the very top of the instrument." George Young (John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Madonna)

     

    "The [GAIA clarinet mouthpiece] is superb! It has a very big sound, but with lots of rich, husky overtones, while being free-blowing at the same time! It seems very reed-friendly. It will be very useful for the jazz clarinetist who needs to cut through a big band or over a small ensemble rhythm section."Rick Kessel publisher for SBO, MMR, JAZZed, Choral Director

    "I never knew how hard I was working until I tried the Gaia clarinet mouthpiece.  It is so easy to play, gives me the sound I want and is so open and clear.  It has improved my tone so much.  It is incredibly easy to hit both high and low notes.  If you haven't tried it, you should.  You'll be sold just like me.  It is by far the best mouthpiece I've ever played.  I feel more confident now and may even attempt to transcribe the solos of Eddie Daniels :)  Theo Wanne products have an exceptional reputation to which I can now attest.  The Gaia clarinet mouthpiece is definitely my woodwind soul mate :)" - Tracy Vignati (The Vignatis)

         Tim Price with Theo Wanne - GAIA Clarinet Review

     

    Many moon ago, I discovered a great clarinet mouthpiece maker named Frank Wells when I was on the road with Lou Rawls. I used to think that his clarinet mouthpieces were all I ever needed. That is until I met Theo Wanne. He has produced what I believe to be the best sounding clarinet mouthpiece in existance today. The sound and versatility of this wonderful mouthpiece is beyond belief. Wow! What a sound! The intonation is spot on and it is the easiest and most comfortable to play. This Gaia clarinet mouthpiece is truly a joy to play. I am a proud endorser of Theo Wanne mouthpieces , and am in no way paid to say this. You really owe it to yourself to play the Gaia. Why not play the best!" - Jim Haag (WWBW Review)
