Theo Wanne needs no introduction here at sax.co.uk; a designer who has created some of the most refined and supremely responsive pieces we’ve had the pleasure of playing. Now he’s come back with the latest version of his soprano and tenor saxes, two horns with his distinctive flair and attention to detail.
To me there was an immediate correlation between the Mantra tenor and the feel one gets from his mouthpieces; the horns default response, huge and slightly husky, was balanced by the slight underlying edge, in the same way that even his brightest mouthpieces (the Durga and its ilk) have depth, while the dark toned ones still have bite. This is a big, expressive sort of horn capable of taking a lot of air and with a very wide tonal palette. Ergonomics and playability wise the keyword feels solid but not heavy while the consistency of response right across the range is up there with the best.... There’s a bit of Conn 10M in there, some King Super 20- we could have a new American classic here
