Theo Wanne Classic Mouthpieces Granted Design Patent
Theo Wanne Classic Mouthpieces were granted a patent for the internal shape of their saxophone mouthpieces. The interior design patent encompasses their signature True Large Chambers, a step baffle, and rounded inner side-walls. Theo Wanne uses the term True Large Chamber in referring to his mouthpieces because his mouthpiece chambers are 30 percent larger than traditional large chamber mouthpieces. Although the larger chambers, especially with their complex curves, are much harder to manufacture, they are said to significantly improve sound and playability.
