I am consistently thrilled to visit the Theo Wanne booth at every NAMM Show, as they invariably unveil innovative products. At the NAMM Show 2024, I was particularly impressed by the introduction of the new Theo Wanne Saxophone Mouthpieces.

Theo is considered the world’s foremost expert on the design and manufacturing of saxophone mouthpieces. As a child, Theo was a traditional apprentice designing and building professional bicycle frames by hand. He learned to shape materials, braze, and jig at a young age all by hand.

In order to share his knowledge of vintage & hand modified products, Theo opened Saxophone Mouthpiece Heaven in 1998 in Philadelphia, PA, which became the world’s foremost knowledge database on saxophone mouthpieces.

In 2007, he started manufacturing his own line of mouthpieces and saxophones. He used the designs he had developed for his many famous clients, such as Mindi Abair, Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, Eric Alexander, Jan Garbarek, Nelson Rangell, Tim Price, Grover Washington Jr., etc.

In this episode, we talked about:
