Classic design meets new innovations..

The GAIA 4 alto is fully re-designed. It still has the classic Meyer style of sound, but with many visible, and hard to see innovations. The result of the GAIA 4's new design is a freedom of play never before experienced in a traditional sounding alto mouthpiece. Easy to see innovations include the proprietary Shark-Gill Baffle, which improves the airflow and opens up the sound. Harder to see is the redesigned baffle shape and chamber. Once you spend some time on it, you will find a dynamic range and flexibility not found in any other mouthpieces. Large chambers have been widely explored in the history of tenor mouthpieces, but very little has been done with alto mouthpieces. The GAIA 4 Alto mouthpiece opens up a whole new world for the alto saxophone. Not only is the design revolutionary, but it uses state of the art manufacturing and premium materials so that design is made right. The GAIA 4 has evolved from the GAIA 3 with an even more core, projection and body to the sound. Sound Outplays history’s best traditional alto mouthpieces. Full, rich and fat traditional sound with a hint of edge. Design Includes the proprietary Shark-Gill-Baffle, True Large Chamber, and rounded inner side walls all the way to the tip. Crafted to the highest accuracy in the history of saxophone mouthpieces. Designed by Theo Wanne, the foremost expert on the design and manufacturing of vintage and new mouthpieces.
