The SHIVA IV ‘The Destroyer’ mouthpiece is TOTALLY updated…BIG! BOLD! GROWLY!!!
Redesigned from the bottom up! Without a doubt the most gnarly mouthpiece in the Theo Wanne lineup! The SHIVA IV’s huge power and edge makes it suitable for Rock n’ Roll, R&B or any situation where dynamics, altissimo and power are key! In-depth explanations of all the innovations are available on the Design & Innovation tab, but include:
Small-Stadium-Chamber™: Shaped like a Football Stadium, the Small-Stadium-Chamber™ gives tremendous projection.
From Ace Barton, who performed with The Champs (who initially recorded the hit song ‘Tequila’):
“The SHIVA IV rocks! I have been a Rock & Roll and Blues-Rock sax player since the late 50’s when I performed with some of the pioneers of Rock. I had the vintage Duck Bill Bergs, Dukoff’s and Brillhart Level aire’s, Guardala’s and a Clarence Clemon’s favorite – the Rovner Deep V. But with all the credibility of my many years wailing on tenor sax to back me up, this latest mouthpiece, the SHIVA IV tops them all. It brings the edge and brightness of the classic vintage pieces, but with more volume, much easier to play bottom end, and when I get on it hard, with deep growling, it’s very nasty. I would say to all your customers, if they are ones who channel the tone/sound of Clarence Clemons, Steve Douglas, Bobby Keys, Eddie Shaw, Michael Antunes or any other rock sax great; this mouthpiece is for them! The SHIVA IV is the holy grail of rock mouthpieces!”
