"The NYBROS was incredibly in tune (spot on) and played better than any Meyer I ever played.  The NYBROS actually surpasses my old vintage Meyer Bros. alto mouthpiece." - Jimmy Haag (Dianna Ross,  Lou Rawls, Tommy Dorsey)

 

"WOW! This is the best playing Meyer mouthpiece I have ever played…that includes all the vintage ones, and all the new 'copies' out there!" - Daniel

 

"Everyone I let try my NYBROS wants it!  Jeez!" - John

 

"But that NYBROS. F&*%# me!" - John Roggensack

 

"Huge sound on the darker side of things with lots of projection. Nice amount of resistance so you can really put some air into the horn. Great altissimo & body to the sound!" - Jason Weber

 

"That is a Great full darker sound w/plenty of projection. The whole range from lower register to altissimo sounds great. You can hardly tell where 1 register ends and the next begins." - Larry Weintraub

 

“It's a huge round hard rubber sound with lots of edge.   Couldn't be any better.   Also the facings of my 2 (alto) pieces are 8 (NYBros) and 9 (KALI Gold), close enough to use the same reed and the shanks are identical so they both fit my cork.  Tell Theo that my biggest endorsement of them (as someone that actually makes their living playing) is that in spite of having 2 completely different tones, they feel very very very similar.   So Monday night pop/contemporary gig I use the Kali, then get called Tuesday for a big band gig and I can use the same reed on the NY Bros and be just as comfortable.      Otherwise I would never go through the BS of keeping 2 sets of reeds ready to go at all times.” - Steve Dawson (Terry Fator show)

 

"The best of all Meyer style mouthpieces out there by far!" - Lars H

“What we want of course is to have a mouthpiece that allows you to do what it was designed to do, give you that old Meyer thing, but also allows you to do all the other things you will encounter as a musician…well…Theo, you have another winner here!”

 

 

 

“All I can say is, WOW!! If you're looking for a Meyer type of piece with an extra bit of power, you gotta check the NYBROS out! It has a beautiful core sound with a little bit of edge (but not too much) to help the sound cut through. This is also a very easy playing piece. I didn't have to make any adjustments to my embouchure or airstream to get to my sound. I don't know all the technical jargon for what makes a good (great) mouthpiece. I just put the mouthpiece on the horn and blow. Either it will play well or it won't. This one feels and sounds great!! If you're looking for a jazz alto piece you should definitely give Theo a call and check out one of these!” – Charles McNeal

 

West Coast Sax NYBROS Alto Mouthpiece Review: "Huge sound on the darker side of things with lots of projection. Nice amount of resistance so you can really put some air into the horn. Great altissimo & body to the sound!" - Jason Weber

 

 

" I am excited to say that the Theo Wanne™ NY Bros alto mouthpiece is THE state of the art Meyer sound! I let New York and East coast professional players try these, and the overwhelming response was that Theo surpassed his mark. They shared the mouthpiece had the NY Meyer vibe but played more reeds, was more fun to play, and was beautiful to listen to while maintaining edge and brightness.  For me this piece just sings! The tone is full, round and beautiful, and he altissimo just sings. It is such a highly versatile mouthpiece, I would bring this mouthpiece to any gig. It can have a very jazz straight ahead sound, be romantic on jazz ballads, and be punchy and fat for funk and R&B. Theo is very proud of this mouthpiece and I can understand why! THIS PIECE DOES EVERYTHING THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN MISSING ON OTHER NY MEYER STYLE PIECES.  I didn't think a vintage New York Meyer Bros mouthpiece could get better.  Looks like I was wrong, this thing has more body to the sound than any of my vintage (or new) mouthpieces.  Yet it still sounds and feels like my vintage pieces.  It is the Perfect Meyer!" - Tim Price Review (Tim Price is a Selmer saxophone clinician and one of the country's foremost woodwind artists. He's spent years in the trenches with the big bands of Tommy Dorsey and Harry James, as well as performing with bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Rachel Z)

 

"The NY Brothers is a really well balanced piece that is easy to play and has a great sound.  I definitely get the vibe of Phil Woods and Cannonball Adderley in the sound.  The altissimo is solid and easy, and the pitch is great.  It can actually be hard to find a solid all-around alto mouthpiece.  This is one of my new favorites!  It has tons of power and flexibility, without losing that classic bop alto sound!" - Dave Strong (Manager of Schmitt Music in Minneapolis, MN USA)
