The SHIVA combines both a step and roll-over baffle. It also has a small chamber akin to the vintage Selmer Soloist mouthpieces. If you’ve been waiting for a small chamber Theo Wanne soprano mouthpiece, this is it! The SHIVA power and body making it suitable for Rock n’ Roll, R&B. Yet there is nothing ‘thin’ or ‘brittle’ about the sound, so it is also flexible for any type of music too. Currently used by both Gerald Albright and Marion Meadows.
