A.R.T. (Advanced Resonance Technology) combines the research, technology and know-how of Theo Wanne in to products designed to take saxophone players to the next level. Our Blue A.R.T. material is designed to surpass hard rubber in terms of resonance, tone and response.
The SHIVA is designed for players desiring a sound with a lot of edge, but maintains a huge core, rich in harmonics.
Inspired by the incredibly popular MANTRA mouthpiece, the SHIVA takes the MANTRA’s innovative design and brings it to those players that are accustomed to a Guardala, Dukoff or Berg Larsen style of mouthpiece.
It has a combination roll-over and step baffle, leading in to Theo Wanne’s proprietary “shark-gill” chamber. These features give the mouthpiece a rich, full sound with plenty of edge and projection, making it ideally suited for Rock n’ Roll, R&B or any situation where the player may require some extra carrying power.
Theo Wanne's new Blue ART material is a proprietary material never before used in mouthpiece manufacturing. It was discovered through the testing of materials used in Aerospace and Medical manufacturing, and was found to be extremely resonant, rich sounding and more responsive than Hard Rubber.
In addition to these sound characteristics, this new material is also non-porous and sterile, making it safer to use and easier to clean.
Like all Theo Wanne™ products, the SHIVA is made using state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technologies and tools, ensuring your receive the most consistent, high-quality mouthpieces available today.
Included with the SHIVA, is the top-rated ENLIGHTENED Ligature, which only has 3 points of contact on the mouthpiece, giving maximum resonance. Two interchangeable pressure plates are also included, along with all of the necessary tools, our Reed Replacer cap, and a leather carrying case.
