The answer to alto saxophonist’s dream.

The GAIA 2 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 the True Large Chamber so get’s 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 easily possible in other mouthpieces.

George Young

“The GAIA alto is the answer to a saxophonist’s 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 I’ve played in seven decades with EVERYTHING. Without any question, it’s a ‘sonic miracle.'” – George Young (John Lennon, Rolling Stones, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Madonna)

Large chambers have been widely explored in the history of tenor mouthpieces, but very little has been done with alto mouthpieces. The GAIA 2 Alto mouthpiece opens up a whole new world for the alto saxophone. Not only is the DESIGN revolutionary, but it uses the state of the art manufacturing and premium materials so that design is made right. The GAIA 2 has evolved from the GAIA 1 with an even more core and body to the sound.

Theo GAIA alto is available in premium hard rubber and in 24K gold plated brass. At first they were hesitant to make this mouthpiece in brass, however, due to popular demand they made a few and the brass version was a huge hit.

Case: Beautiful Leatherette Case.
Premium Hard Rubber: The Hard Rubber DURGA 3 uses the finest vintage style hard rubber on the planet.
Ligature: They recommend the Enlightened Ligature for the Hard Rubber and Blue A.R.T. models. To truly individualize the sound, try the premium pressure plates, which fit all of the mouthpieces and ligatures..
Cap: The Reed Replacer Cap is most secure cap in the world.
Bite Pad: User replaceable bite pads allow you to peel and stick on new bite pads. Try the varying hardness bite pads to personalize the feel.
