What is a True Large Chamber?
All Theo Wanne Classic Mouthpieces, DURGA, Kali anbd boast our revolutionary True Large Chamber, raising the bar on saxophone mouthpieces and granting musicians a new level of sound.
True Large Chamber mouthpieces have significantly larger chambers than the bore. They also have significantly rounded inner side walls that extend all the way to the tip. This is done to allow the sound wave to spread width-wise in the mouthpiece creating a robust, rich, and warm sound.
Because a True Large Chamber’s interior is significantly larger than the bore, machining tools cannot easily access a True Large Chamber mouthpiece's interior, let alone create the necessary complex shapes. This is why complex interior shapes have needed to be cast instead of machined...Until now.
We fully CNC-machine a huge chamber with fully rounded side-walls which extend in a mathematic (i.e. exact) curve all the way up to the tip. This is a true innovation in the world of CNC mouthpiece manufacturing. In fact, our manufacturing process is Patent Pending.
Our innovative process also allows us to design and create mathematically precise and exact interior design shapes. This was not previously possible.
The chamber is formed from a specific conical extension starting at the very tip of the mouthpiece. The inner side walls, baffle, and chamber are all machined to extremely high tolerances.
The result is sheer beauty, an incredible sound, and the ability to Unleash Your Soul!

What some people say about the the mouthpieces:
"I am playing on both the tenor and baritone DURGA mouthpieces which are incredible in every way! Once again, you have created the most amazing mouthpiece that incorporates so many wonderful possibilities. Congratilations on another masterpiece!"
Terry Harrington (aka Lisa Simpson)
"The KALI 7* has stolen my heart. Its Projection is so perfect..."
"Congratulations on making the best mouthpieces in the world! Just one thing, will I ever want to put the sax down? Wow, I've been playing all day and I'm not tired. With my other mouthpieces I just had to work way too hard, and believe me, I'm talking about some other high end pieces. It's all there with this DURGA!”
Howard Isaacson, USA (DURGA Gold 8)
"The Kali 7* has stolen my heart. Its Projection is so perfect that sound projects more from the bell-bow of the sax than from the bow in the neck. This gives a direct sound with a full rich tone and well specified center. It has just a huge sound! We had to wait for more than 100 years, but finally there is a mouthpiece that matches perfectly with a saxophone....!!"
Andre de Laat, Belgium (KALI Gold 7*)
