Quantum leap in tone and design. These horns have to be played to be believed. If you’re a serious saxophone player, check one out the first chance you get.
Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
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 history-changing innovations are designed to produce.
Critical designs, parts and assembly are done at the Theo Wanne factory in Bellingham, WA USA. Theo has created a uniquely designed mouthpiece for the MANTRA tenor in-line with its full bodied, huge projecting sound!
The saxophone neck is the most crucial part of a horn’s sound and soul. Theo has applied 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, which must be there. It has no keys, guides, or braces soldered to the tube to dampen it. The octave key rides on cartridge ball bearings, and is completely isolated from the neck tube and brace. This is one of over 30 innovations and features.
Downbeat Magazine says, “Quantum leap in tone and design. These horns have to be played to be believed. If you’re a serious saxophone player, check one out the first chance you get.”
Music Inc. Magazine says, “Theo Wanne MANTRA sax is one of the Top 50 Products from NAMM 2012“. [Out of all categories: strings, woodwinds, brass winds, pro-audio, piano, etc.]
Jazz Times Magazine says, “A Spiritual Sax- Theo Wanne’s innovative MANTRA tenor saxophone plays and sounds great – and looks evens better. “
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 then applied innovative thinking and advanced technology to create a historically superior saxophone.
