The AMBIKA IV maintains the fundamental beauty of the AMBIKA 3, but with a richer, fuller body to the sound. During research and development stages, 100% of our endorsers who were using the AMBIKA 3 have switched to the IV, which is a great testament. As our darkest model we are pleased to make it even more lovely & beautiful sounding!
What changed? The “standard” large-chamber is evolved into our Large-Stadium-Chamber™. This chamber design gets its name from its shape, which is reminiscent of a Football Stadium. This provides an even bigger bottom end, and a more full sound at the same time.
The indented lines you see on the baffle are our patented Shark Gill Baffle™. It works on the physics principle of boundary layer effect, similar to the dimples on a golf ball. In a mouthpiece, the airstream is pulled closer to the floor and side walls. This allows one to “fill” the mouthpiece more with air, resulting in increased dynamics and tone color.
Manufactured by Theo Wanne™ using the highest technology in the market for both consistency and accurate reproduction of the new design. The AMBIKA IV is available in 24k Gold Plate with our built-in liberty ligature, and in premium hard rubber. You will notice the hard rubber version is the same price as the metal. This is because we use pure hard rubber with no accelerants, additives or carbon black. It is pure, like the vintage hard rubber from the 1930’s through 50s. Such pure hard rubber is more expensive than the brass and gold plating combined. The Hard Rubber AMBIKA also uses a thin body, allowing its premium hard rubber to fully resonate, giving quite a fantastic sound. Now you can hear the full magic in this type of hard rubber. If you like the vintage sound, you will love the AMBIKA IV.
