The GAIA 4 tenor does everything previous GAIA tenor mouthpieces did, but with an incredible CORE to the sound!
GAIA 4 has evolved into work of art and is now the most technically advanced mouthpiece Theo has ever made. The Shark Gill™ baffle has been updated, and Theo’s completely new Large-Stadium Chamber™ added. It takes the huge, warm and free sound the previous GAIA mouthpiece have become famous and iconic for, to a whole new level. It has greatly increased the ‘presence’ and core of the mouthpiece. It still has the large chamber sound, but no ‘hollowness’….just fullness!
The GAIA 4 lends itself well to a traditional Jazz taste, but due to its amazing flexibility, it is at home in any style of playing. It comes in 24K gold plated or a unique thin-body premium hard rubber which has mazing vibratory qualities.
