Bellingham, WA, March 22, 2009 -- Theo Wanne Classic Mouthpieces was granted a patent for the internal shape of their saxophone mouthpieces. The interior design patent encompasses their signature True Large Chambers, a step baffle, and rounded inner-side-walls. These complex interior designs make Theo Wanne mouthpieces very special and unique.
It is these complex designs combined with unparalleled state-of-the-art machining that give all Theo Wanne mouthpieces their incredibly fat sound throughout the entire range of the horn, effortless playability, and their sense of magic.
Driven by the woodwind genius of Theo Wanne, the company thrives on creating new innovations for the good of musicians across the globe. Making mouthpieces is Theo’s way of being of service to musicians. Theo is passionate about helping musicians express themselves musically.
Theo says, “My desire with my mouthpieces is to support the musician in full musical expression. I want to help musicians unleash their deepest inner creativity. I’ve been working on bringing my True Large Chamber mouthpiece vision to musicians for almost ten years. This patent is a huge accomplishment for me.”
Theo’s mouthpieces are famous for their True Large Chamber. Theo uses the term True Large Chamber in referring to his mouthpieces because his mouthpiece chambers are 30% larger than traditional large chamber mouthpieces. Although the larger chambers, especially with their complex curves, are much harder to manufacture, they significantly improve the sound and playability.
Two-time Grammy Award Winner Jeff Coffin (Bela Fleck and David Mathews Band) says “Theo Wanne has done it again! I feel he has brought a new dimension in mouthpieces to us that will not only stand the test of time but will be a benchmark mouthpiece for many, many years to come! Tell sax players, the bar has been raised.”
The granting of this patent is a testament to the company’s ingenuity and exemplifies what differentiates Theo Wanne products from the crowd.
