The BRAHMA uses the best features of vintage mouthpieces like Berg Larsen & Lawton with their small chamber & flat side-walls, but updates them with Theo’s new design technologies, which is why you will notice the interior looks quite different:
Twisted-Walls™: Flat-sidewall that ‘twists’ into the chamber.
Wave-Baffle™: The baffle is shaped in the form of a sine-wave, adding fullness and sparkle to the sound.
Theo’s proprietary “bullet” chamber: A unique ‘elongated-oval’ shape is used to transition from baffle to chamber.
Shark-Gill-Baffle™: The arced lines you see on the baffle. Patented by Theo Wanne.
Small-Stadium-Chamber™: Shape like a Football Stadium, the Small-Stadium-Chamber™ gives tremendous projection.
Shark-Gill Chamber™: The indented lines on the chamber walls create a bigger sound. Patented by Theo Wanne.
Elliptical Window: Efficiently focuses the airstream into the mouthpiece.
These features allow the BRAHMA to do-it-all. From ballads to rock & roll, this is the most versatile mouthpiece we make.
We used the name BRAHMA mouthpiece many years ago on another mouthpiece. However this design is completely new. The two models have little in common, except for the cool name!
Manufactured by Theo Wanne™ using the highest technology in the market for both consistency and accurate reproduction of the new design. The BRAHMA is available in 24k Gold Plate with our built-in liberty ligature, and in premium hard rubber. You will notice the hard rubber version is the same price as the metal. This is because we use pure hard rubber with no accelerants, additives or carbon black. It is pure, like the vintage hard rubber from the 1930’s through 50s. Such pure hard rubber is more expensive than the brass and gold plating combined.
Great for almost every musical style including Ballads, Jazz, and Rock & Roll.
Massive sound, while also being ‘dark’ and vintage sounding at the same time.
Truly a unique sound/design maximizing the potential of airflow. There’s nothing else like it!
