The Gaia Tenor Hard Rubber is another excellent mouthpiece from Theo Wanne. It is very easy to play and has a beautiful darkish, but also very warm tone. This mouthpiece is light and feels very comfortble in the mouth; it can play very softly but when you push it it's screaming.
Compared to the Gaia metal tenor mouthpiece both have a very similar core tone, however the metal Gaia sounds to my ears to have a slightly cleaner, purer tone, whereas the ebonite version has more of a rich, husky buzz to it. The Hard Rubber and metal Gaia are both fantastic, so if you can't decide whether to go for the HR or metal either will be a great choice.
One final point is that this mouthpiece comes with Theo Wanne's Enlightened ligature, which is very good and easy to use, as well as a stylish leather pouch. Note that several other top brands of mouthpiece come without any ligature so this is a good bonus.
