High baffle mouthpiece with thick, colorful tone.
The Isotope is a collaborative effort between Phil-Tone Woodwinds and Theo Wanne. The Isotope is not just another high baffle piece. In addition to a step baffle it sports a hint of a rollover baffle and more importantly, sidewalls that are undercut. This adds ease of control and depth to the piece. Don’t be intimidated by that large baffle. This piece remains full in the low end and unlike most baffled pieces, the palm keys do not thin out. This piece can contend with modern electric instruments and has a stage presence that is unrivaled for Jazz, fusion, and R&B. The Isotope is incredibly powerful, gutsy, and just a little bit radioactive.

Comments about Phil-Tone Theo Wanne Isotope Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:
Good piece - rips pretty good. I guess it sounds like Coltrane and Brecker had a kid who wanted to play alto but they made him play tenor, then named him Sandborno? I have an 8 Isotope, however, I would get an 8* or 9 if you can, as that would play better with your softer reeds on these more open pieces. But with the 8 Isotope you get a little push back so you don't run out of wind - don't loose air too quick. The Philtone Isotope works with the Enlightened Lig (check the Theo Wanne chart) and Francois Louis - I think Small Tenor Brass. My Enlightened Lig fits the Isotope Otto Link type MP, as that is what the Theo Wanne Enlightened Lig Chart says = OL, but call Theo to make sure. Piece is very bright and ripping and R&R Bluesy on a 2.0 Fibracell, but 2.5 may be better for you to control and not sound too kazooish. 2.25 Legere works ok for practicing. If you need darker sound just use squeaky regular cane reeds - I would recommend 2.0 or 2.25 if you can get it - 2.5 is to hard and squeaky. Fibracell plays great though on 2.5.)
