Theo Wanne - Legendary Saxophone Mouthpieces
Manufacturing EXACTLY as designed.
As an expert in mouthpiece design, Theo Wanne needs his sax mouthpieces to be manufactured exactly like his designs, which is why the company has invested so heavily in manufacturing technology.
Using the world's most advanced machining technologies to finish the most important areas like the baffle means that every mouthpiece will play as well as the original design.
Theo’s mouthpiece designs are complex and the tooling must sculpt the complex interior geometries in very hard to reach places such as the chamber and inner sidewalls.
Other manufacturers get away with simpler designs, or inaccurate manufacturing techniques to get around these issues. For example, other machining manufacturers must make the window longer or put holes in the table to try and get a True-Large Chamber™ sound. Other manufacturers mold or cast their mouthpieces to get features like rounded-inner-sidewalls. However, molding and casting techniques experience shrinkage in both the molds and mouthpieces during the cooling processes – hence the final mouthpiece will never be accurate, or as good as the original design.
