The GAIA 3 alto is designed with the classic Meyer design in mind. HOWEVER no limitations were put on the design, so it simply does everything better! It has an optimized classic baffle and includes our True Large Chamber so gets a breadth of sound surpassing all the Meyer clones on the market.Once you spend some time on it, you will find a dynamic range and flexibility not possible in other mouthpieces. Large chambers have been widely explored in the history of tenor mouthpieces, but very little has been done with alto mouthpieces. The GAIA 3 Alto mouthpiece opens up a whole new world for the alto saxophone. Not only is the DESIGN revolutionary, but it uses our state of the art manufacturing and premium materials so that design is made right!
The GAIA 3 has evolved from the GAIA 1 & 2 with an even more core. And body to the sound. The GAIA alto is the answer to a saxophonists dream! Over my sixty years of performing in either recording studios, or performing live concerts, I can finally do it all with one mouthpiece instead of carrying several pieces around. The only mouthpiece Ive played in seven decades with EVERYTHING!
Without any question, its a sonic miracle! George Young (John Lennon, Rolling Stones, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Madonna). Theo GAIA 3 alto is available in premium hard rubber and in 24K gold plated brass. At first we were hesitant to make this mouthpiece in brass, however, due to popular demand we made a few and the brass version was a huge hit! Playing on the metal version.
