MANTRA ALTO MOUTHPIECE 

 

The MANTRA alto mouthpiece has a thick, full and clear sound versatile enough for all types of playing!  It has more power than a vintage Meyer style mouthpiece, yet is not 'bright' like a high baffle mouthpiece.  The Rolling Stones (Karl Denson) is currently touring with the MANTRA alto mouthpiece.

 

"You can lay back and get almost a classical sound as well as push the issue and fill the room with clear centered sound and not be freakishly harsh or unpleasant. Imagine an all around mouthpiece that truly lives up to the players needs. Theo's really onto something here. Do yourself a favor and try it for yourself." - Jimmy Haag (Diana Ross, Lou Rawls, Tommy Dorsey)

 

Surprisingly responsive and reed friendly. I have hundreds of mouthpieces but haven't had the urge to change since I've played these Mantras!" - Sam Phipps (Oingo Boingo)

 

The MANTRA combines both a shallow-step and roll-over baffle, and adds the Theo Wanne proprietary small "shark-gill" chamber. This is not a True Large Chamber like many other Theo Wanne™ designs, but a very unique small chamber evolved from Theo's study of boundary layer effect and boat hull design.   These features give the MANTRA enough projection and depth to be suitable for both Rock n' Roll, and more traditional ballad playing as well.

 

Like all Theo Wanne™ products the MANTRA is made using Theo's state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technologies. You will receive the most consistent and highest quality mouthpiece available in history. The MANTRAs advanced design, high quality and fantastic price make it the best value mouthpiece in the market.

 “Like many professionals, I have tried and experimented with many sax mouthpieces in an attempt to find the right fit for me. In the words of Frank Wells, "You have to play and hang with a mouthpiece for 6 months in order to determine whether it's what you truly want." I believe that's an accurate statement since we easily fall in love with something right away only to find out that we jumped the gun. I've played a lot of mouthpieces and not only say that I proudly play and endorse this mouthpiece but say this from the heart and I am not paid in any way to do so.Theo Wanne continually is amazing in his search for excellence and has definitely developed this particular mouthpiece to near perfection in my humble opinion. Like I said, if it works here in Las Vegas, imagine what it can do for you. I love the Mantra mouthpiece because it works for me but you will have to try it for yourself along with his many wonderful line of mouthpieces.The right equipment definitely makes the difference!" - Jimmy Haag (Diana Ross, Lou Rawls, Tommy Dorsey) from WWBW Review

 

Sax Society Reviewing the MANTRA Alto Mouthpiece

 

"Most descriptions I read here at WWBW are worded as this mouthpiece or that one is designed to compete with today's high tech sounds. While that sounds great, it is indeed in no way accurate. Mostly everyone I see needs to bury the mic or even need their own personal cordless mic in order to be heard. That being the case then we all really need a sax mouthpiece that can meet those standards but also be able to blend with others. This means intonation and sonority. Theo Wanne is constantly improving on his ideas to help others achieve their personal sound and is always improving on his designs. I personally play his Mantra Gold Alto Mouthpiece. You can lay back and get almost a classical sound as well as push the issue and fill the room with clear centered sound and not be freakishly harsh or unpleasant. Imagine an all around mouthpiece that truly lives up to the players needs.Theo's really onto something here and I proudly play and profess its excellence. Do yourself a favor and try it for yourself." - Jimmy Haag (Diana Ross, Lou Rawls, Tommy Dorsey) from WWBW Review #2
