The name is back but the mouthpiece has been completely reinvented!
Those of you that follow Theo Wanne's history will be aware of the Brahma model from around a decade before this release. However, this new version is quite different, drawing inspiration from Berg Larsen and Lawtons with their small chambers and flat side walls but updating these designs by incorporating Theo's latest technologies.
The Brahma is setting out to be Theo's most versatile mouthpiece yet, with the ability to span through ballads, jazz, and rock n roll. It has a massive sound, while also being dark and vintage in nature. Its unique design incorporates Theo's all-new 'Twisted Side Walls', essentially a flat side wall that 'twists' back into the chamber, different from the way Bergs and Brillharts used to do it back in the day! In addition to this it also includes the new 'Wave-Baffle' design, which is shaped in the form of a sine-wave - all very intricate and only possible to be produced via CNC machining, and not via hand.
It doesn't stop there! The Brahma also includes Theo's proprietary 'Bullet' chamber, again widely associated with Berg Larsen, but Theo uses a more elongated oval shape. Just to complete the aerodynamic mastery of this mouthpiece, Theo adds the 'Sharkgill Baffle' which features grooves in the baffle, allowing the airflow to cling to the surface more readily, thus creating a greater scope for dynamics.
The net result of all of the above features is that the sound is as efficient, focused, and full as possible, hence why this mouthpiece can do it all!
It should also be mentioned that the hard rubber material used is of the highest quality, hence the price is the same as the metal version of the Brahma. There are no accelerants, additives, or carbon black. It is pure, like the vintage hard rubber from the 1930s through 50s. Such pure hard rubber is more expensive than the brass and gold plating combined. The Hard Rubber Brahma also uses a thin body, allowing it's premium hard rubber to fully resonate, giving quite a fantastic sound
“You’re on a roll these days! The BRAHMA is a great piece, and it brings back that old Berg feeling for me, but with tons of improvements and modernity! I think I´ll be able to get an excellent sound from it. A bit of a coming-home feeling for me, actually. Exciting!!” – Jan Garbarek (Keith Jarrett, George Russell, Grammy Nominee, 31 Internationally Acclaimed Albums)
“The BRAHMA tenor is no joke. It’s Fu@ing amazing! It’s got all the tonal spectrum your digging for. Your can soft and go Otto Link-y on it or Dig Deep into it. And the high G is just coming right out.” – Brad Rambur (Nashville’s 2010 Best New Artist)
