The SHIVA IV ‘The Destroyer’ mouthpiece has EVEN MORE power, fullness, and ease-of-play!!!
The SHIVA IV uses Theo’s newest design technology to optimize the airflow across the high step baffle. This means more dynamics, to the effectiveness of the airflow; you can literally put more air into the mouthpiece, but doing so with greater ease. This makes the SHIVA IV a very expressive mouthpiece! Not only does the SHIVA IV include the Theo Wanne proprietary “shark-gill” chamber™ but it now features a whole host of Theo's latest technologies:
Twisted walls: these are flat side-walls that 'twist' into the chamber, creating a very focussed sound
Wave baffle: the baffle on the Shiva is a setp-baffle, as you might imagine. However, it is formed in a wave pattern rather than flat, helping to accelerate the air even faster, adding to the projection, fullness and sparkle!
Bullet chamber: taking its inspiration from Berg Larsen models of old, this new design takes this concept further and melds the 'bullet' shape into an elongated oval shape.
Small-Stadium chamber: This shape of chamber mimics that of a football stadium, hence the name! The small size helps to give incredible projection, allowing the space to fill with more air more efficiently than with a standard size chamber.
Shark-gill chamber: these striking grooves on the chamber side draw the air more efficiently over the surface of this area, all adding to the projection and effortlessness of play.
These features give the SHIVA huge power and edge making it suitable for Rock n’ Roll, R&B or any situation where dynamics and power are important.
The SHIVA is currently being used by Gerald Albright, Warren Ham on tour with Ringo Starr, as well as by Mark Douthit (Elton John, Michael McDonald), Najee, Nelson Rangell, and many many others.
