Current retail description via WWBW.com:
"Full, rich traditional sound with a big projection and plenty of edge.
The GAIA 3 has evolved into work of art and is now the most technically advanced mouthpiece Theo has ever made. And not just because of the Shark Gill™ baffle—the entire design is filled with proprietary design elements.
It takes the huge and free sound the GAIA 1 or 2 mouthpiece have become famous for to a whole new level. It has greatly increased projection, flexibility and freedom of expression.
The GAIA 3 lends itself well to a traditional Jazz taste, but due to its amazing flexibility, it is at home in any style of playing. It comes in 24K gold plate or a unique thin-body premium hard rubber, which has amazing vibratory qualities.
The GAIA 3 has a medium roll-over Shark Gill™ baffle, precision-sculpted inner sidewalls, and the True-Large-Chamber, which is similar to the vintage mouthpieces of the 1940s, but more evolved in design.
Crafted to the highest accuracy in the history of saxophone mouthpieces. Designed by Theo Wanne, expert on the design and manufacturing of vintage and new mouthpieces.
