The new and revolutionary Theo Wanne saxophone is called, ‘The Mantra’. A mantra is: a sound, or group of sounds, that leads the speaker to freedom! The feeling of freedom and full self-expression is what the Mantra saxophone and its amazing innovations are designed to produce. Novel.
Just like with saxophone mouthpieces, Theo Wanne has owned and studied every type of vintage and new saxophone. He has combined the huge and beautiful sound of the vintage horns (such as his favorite Conn Chu and Selmer Mark VI saxophones) with the intonation and playability of modern horns. Theo has applied incredible and completely new concepts to the saxophone. Classic.
The saxophone neck is the most crucial part of a horn’s sound and soul. Theo has applied revolutionary new concepts to his patent-pending design that have proven to be a quantum leap forward in neck design. His completely redesigned neck tube has nothing soldered to it except at the octave pip; no keys, guides, or braces exist to dampen the necks resonance. The octave key rides on cartridge ball bearings, and is completely isolated from the neck tube or brace. Pure.
The bell-to-body brace is solid titanium and is designed to be far stronger than a traditional brace while also allowing for previously unheard of vibrational freedom. The new brace also replaces the traditional “pants guard” in protecting the lower stack keys. Tough.
The entire interior of the horn has a reticulated finish which creates less friction for the airflow in the same way like how a golf ball travels further not being smooth. Uninhibited.
The list of 30 innovations is far more extensive than any other saxophone made today. Just like with his mouthpieces, Theo has successfully married the beauty of the old with the precision of the new, resulting in a technologically and sonically superior saxophone. MANTRA: novel, classic, pure, tough, and uninhibited. Seeing is awe inspiring. Hearing is believing. Join the Theo Wanne Revolution!
