The latest iteration of the "56" (both Select and Mark II) were further refined in collaboration with Theo Wanne and Dr. Wally Wallace. Theo was able to take the design of the original "56" to a new level using his years of facing experience. He was able to keep the integrity of the original design, but simply allow more air to pass making it a more powerful piece and stronger across the dynamic range that the "56" provides.
