Theo Wanne Mindi Abair Custom Metal Alto Mouthpiece
The Mindi Abair Custom Mouthpiece has been a full-on collaboration between Theo Wanne™ and Mindi Abair to make the ultimate powerhouse alto mouthpiece!
Mindi is a 2-time Grammy nominee who’s toured with Aerosmith, been featured on American Idol, won a 2015 She Rocks Award for Mad Skills, and filled in for Clarence Clemons with Bruce Springsteen. She knows how to rock a saxophone.
Theo and Mindi worked together since 2012 on this mouthpiece and three years later the Mindi Abair Custom Alto Mouthpiece was born!
Completely new A.R.T (Advanced Resonance Technology) features have been developed for this mouthpiece, including a new 'swept-step' baffle with roll-over, a newly designed flat-side-wall chamber, and unique duck-bill beak. The result is the most screaming alto mouthpiece ever made, yet amazingly, when you want to step back and relax you can do that too, making this mouthpiece incredibly expressive!
We included the Theo Wanne™ LIBERTY Ligature and, at Mindi’s request to make the best alto mouthpiece in the world also accessible to all, it’s priced very affordably. As Mindi says, this mouthpiece allows one and all to "Give Yourself to the Music!"
The ultimate powerhouse alto mouthpiece, yet able to whisper quietly when needed.
Completely new design in high-step with roll-over baffle with a powerful chamber that projects like mad but with incredible body to the sound!

"Theo and I worked on this mouthpiece for years, and somehow, amazingly, it kept getting better and better allowing me to express myself in ways I had never thought possible before. I can honestly say it's the powerhouse mouthpiece that I always dreamed of playing! It’s even, free-blowing and so incredibly resonant in every register." - Mindi Abair
