The KALI alto has an alive and fat modern sound. Its design is patented and its manufacturing process is patent pending. The KALI alto mouthpiece makes an alto sound more like a tenor. It has clear sound with great projection, and its True Large Chamber give a fullness to the sound never before heard in an alto mouthpiece. Even though it is a brass mouthpiece, it is not brash or harsh. It is what the alto mouthpiece always wanted to be. It is an absolute joy to play! The KALI can both growl and sub-tone well. Its growl and edge come from a short high baffle similar to a Guardala Brecker mouthpiece. Its full sound is created by rounded sidewalls starting all the way to the tip and our True Large Chamber, like the vintage mouthpieces of the 1940s. The use of a True Large Chamber is truly unique in a modern high baffle mouthpiece, let alone in an alto mouthpiece. It creates a fullness to the sound not heard in other contemporary mouthpieces. Our True Large Chamber is completely machined to extremely high tolerances for accuracy not possible with cast mouthpieces. Theo Wanne's new True Large Chamber alto mouthpieces are breaking new ground. Large chambers have been widely explored in the history of tenor mouthpieces, but very little has been done with alto mouthpieces, until now. Theo's new True Large Chamber alto mouthpieces open up a whole new world for the alto saxophone.
