Brass mouthpiece for alto.
The KALI alto mouthpiece makes an alto seem like a tenor. Its short high baffle and True Large Chamber give a fullness to the sound never before heard in an alto mouthpiece. It is a really fun mouthpiece to play. It is machined from a solid brass stock. Many alto players who never liked metal mouthpieces before love this mouthpiece.
The new Theo Wanne KALI alto mouthpiece is unprecedented in the history of the alto saxophone. It's higher baffle, True Large Chamber, and new Premium Vintage Hard Rubber truly set it apart. Very little has been done with large chamber alto mouthpiece, especially when paired with a higher, more contemporary baffle, until now. A whole new world has been opened up. You can now sound contemporary, rich, warm, and fat all at the same time.
Made from traditional manufacturing techniques, and natural latex rubber, we are proud to introduce the highest quality, most resonant, hard rubber available today in saxophone mouthpieces.
Theo Wanne's new True Large Chamber alto mouthpieces are breaking new ground. Large chambers have been widely explored in the history of tenor mouthpieces, but very little has been done with alto mouthpieces, until now. Theo's new True Large Chamber alto mouthpieces open up a whole new world for the alto saxophone.
Vintage and modern rolled into one. Order today.

Comments about Theo Wanne KALI Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:
I have been using size 9 for a year now as replacement for a Berg Larsen metal, 95/1M. Compared to the Berg, the Kali blows very freely, has a more immediate presence, and has great flexibility to produce a variety of sounds, from a nice edge when pressed to an almost Desmond-like roundness when not. When returning to the Berg with its higher resistance, I feel like I am slightly fighting the mouthpiece and horn, which inhibits the flow of ideas. With the Kali and its lack of resistance, I find I can focus on playing the music and not playing the horn. Because it blows so freely, I have also increased my reed hardness by 1/2 or 1 step, which provides some resistance and mellows the sound. The finish of the mouthpiece is exceptional and high quality. In short, this mouthpiece provides everything I want and is the best mouthpiece I have found to match my needs. Thank you Theo Wanne.
