Infused with the spirit of Dexter Gordon, the GAIA 2 was built to outplay Theo's very best new and vintage Otto Links. He succeeded! As the foremost expert in vintage mouthpieces, Theo has taken his extensive experience to make the vintage sound even better! The GAIA 2 is updated with far more core and body to sound, while maintaining the big warm traditional sound the GAIA is known for!
The GAIA 2 tends towards a traditional Jazz taste, but is quite versatile, as it can even get the great type of sound heard by Leon Silva on Ariana Grande's song 'Problem'. It has a medium roll-over baffle, precision-sculpted inner sidewalls, and our True Large Chamber for a simply huge and alive vintage sound.
The GAIA 2's True Large Chamber is very much like the vintage mouthpieces of the 1940s but the design has been perfected. It is technically superior due to our industry leading machining technology. Take a look at our baffles, tip rails, side rails, and interior design. We show you pictures of these for a reason. Because they are manufactured with a accuracy higher than any other mouthpiece ever made, vintage or new!
