MANTRA TENOR MOUTHPIECE 

 

The MANTRA mouthpiece has a huge core sound with amazing bite and edge. This is not an Otto Link copy. It is a beautiful blend of the fatness of an Otto Link and the Core Sound of a Berg. It is the true 'Link on Steroids' and is an incredibly fun mouthpiece to play. Its unique rollover baffle, square window, and 'shark gill' chamber along with Theo Wanne’s advanced manufacturing techniques make this a standout in the mouthpiece market. Like Theo Wanne’s other mouthpieces, the MANTRA uses his incredible advanced CAD manufacturing techniques.

 

"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 "shark-gill" chamber. These features give the MANTRA enough projection and edge to be suitable for Rock n' Roll, and depth and warmth for more traditional playing.

 

Like all Theo Wanne™ products the MANTRA is made using 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.t.

"I love my Mantra tenor, it has the best sound. In fact, it sounds even better now, others sound worse." - Mike Mertrand

 

"This thing is so killin'" - Dean Mongerio

 

"I was so knocked out by the Mantra soprano I had to get it on Tenor. The Mantra tenor is a responsive mouthpiece, from one end of the horn to the other. It reminds me of the connection to the horn I had with my metal Lawton, but the MANTRA has a fuller richer tone to it, and it is a very quick mouthpiece (mouth and fingers in complete harmony no lag in between). Great work Theo, I have been spoiled as other musicians have by your high quality mouthpieces, all top quality if there is a problem playing one of your mouthpieces it is with the musician not your mouthpiece, years ago it was hit and miss not really sure what you would get even after working months to get the sound you were looking for, not any more! Thanks for making life more enjoyable for sax players!" - Mike McGlynn

 

"I cant put my horn down. The Mantra is simply amazing, it makes my horn so responsive from low Bb to infinity!   You are truly great at what you do and I am in awe.  Thanks so much, and keep up the great work!" -  Kevin King

 

"I love the mantra...It plays with ease in all registers from altissimo to bottom... I'm not working hard and the notes play with a strong pop , resonance and presence to them...Playing just got more inspiring:)" - Phillip Whack (Fred Wesley & the New JB's)

 

"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)

 I've been playing Otto link mouthpieces for most of my musical life. I often found myself wanting a bit more volume and projection in my sound, especially when getting buried in loud horn sections, until I tried the Mantra tenor mouthpiece. This piece as Theo calls it a "link on steroids" offers the link core sound along with great volume and projection combined with superb manufacturing. Its like a dream come true!! I strongly recommend Theo Wanne's mouthpieces to any saxophonist out there. Worth every penny!" - Ivan Renta (WWBW Review)

 

"Theo Wanne has long been an innovator as far as producing the world's best playing and sounding mouthpieces. The Mantra tenor sax mouthpiece is no exception. It definitely has a huge sound while not losing the ability to control it. Theo has invented his "shark gill" technology which adds to the quality of sound. Try one and you won't be sorry. Why not play the best!" - Jimmy Haag (WWBW Review)

 

"I absolutely love this mouthpiece! Easy to play and is even all throughout the horn!You cannot go wrong if you love power and precision, that is!" - Eddie Baccus Jr. (Pieces of a Dream) From WWBW Review
