WARREN HAM - Ringo Starr, Olivia Newton John
Theo Wanne mouthpieces are so well made that it makes it easier to just focus on the music and play freely. These are absolutely the most responsive mouthpieces I have ever played on. The balance between the highs and lows is perfect. I don't want to put my horn down! That's when you know you have a good mouthpiece.
