I met Theo in 2010 at the Musikmeese in Frankfurt. He gave me one of his mouthpieces and after I playing a few minutes on it, I was sure that I had found the real mouthpiece for me. It makes me feel like one of the luckiest Saxplayers on the planet.The Amma 5 Alto mouthpiece is really incredible. I like the sound that much! I can play everything I like with it. A beautiful sound in all registers and with all dynamics, good intonation and a fantastic response.A fascinating mouthpiece! I love it.Thank you soo much Theo!!
