The DURGA is Theo Wanne's most popular modern Pro-Line mouthpiece. It has a powerful, sexy, lively and fat sound. It comes with an individual serial number, a rhodium Liberty Ligature, alive-gold and heavy copper pressure plates, leather mouthpiece pouch, and a Reed Replacer cap. The DURGA has the most technically advanced design and manufacturing process of any mouthpiece in history. The result is a powerful mouthpiece with a versatile, flexible and huge sound. It both screams and plays a soft ballad with ease! The secret to the DURGA lies in a long, uniquely designed baffle coupled with deeply rounded inner side walls and a special power version of their True Large Chamber that incorporates a Power Ring at the back of the chamber that radically tapers the chamber down. The DURGA gets all the benefits of their Revolutionary True Large Chambers and the power inherent in a small chamber mouthpiece. Theo Wanne mouthpieces allow you to PLAY better, EXPRESS better, and SOUND better, for real! Join the Revolution! Available in 8 and 9 facing.

Features:

•  Special power version of the True Large Chamber that incorporates a Power Ring at the back of the chamber
•  Versatile, sexy, powerful and fat sound appropriate for most types of music
•  Unique mouthpiece serial number
•  Patented, state-of-the-art, interior design with rounded inner side walls
•  Incorporates the patented, integrated two-point contact Liberty Ligature
•  Includes reed replacer cap, alive gold and heavy copper pressure plate, precision screwdriver, hexdriver and leather mouthpiece case

"The DURGA is here and......I AM SPEECHLESS. No kidding. I need a few days till I get un-dazed from it. There’s so much in it...man…I'm at an all-time bliss. It’s made better than you could dream of-and it plays. Nuff said.”

– Tim Price

“I am playing on both the tenor and baritone DURGA mouthpieces which are incredible in every way. You have created the most amazing mouthpiece that incorporates so many wonderful musical possibilities. Congratulations on another masterpiece!”

– Terry Harrington (Lisa Simpson’s Sax on The Simpsons for 20 years)

Comments about Theo Wanne DURGA Gold Plated Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I first bought a Theo Wanne Gaia Soprano mouthpiece a few years back and loved it. I then bought a TW Durga 9 tenor piece and had to round out my horns with a Durga 9 piece for alto.

I used Dukoff and Guardala pieces on tenor for many years and whilst I liked the sound of both pieces, I often felt that my tone was more "piece" and not enough "me". It's completely the opposite with the Durga (in fact, with all of my Theo Wanne pieces) and I feel that I can perfectly express myself. The Durga has a great edge but also possesses a full core sound, resulting in a consistent tone in all registers that never sounds thin. You can be playing warm and lush subtones one moment and then screaming the next!

Altissimo is a breeze and also more consistent than any other pieces I've played.

The other thing about Theo Wanne mouthpieces is that they are effortless to play. This often means that you can go up 1 or 2 mouthpiece sizes from what you'd normally use and still feel very comfortable.

The built-in Liberty ligature is brilliant, especially with the option to swap pressure plates. Some players don't believe that ligatures make much difference to sound or response but I disagree....I bought the Theo Wanne pressure plate set and have settled on 3 different metal plates on each of my horns due to the difference these make.

I highly recommend trying a Theo Wanne mouthpiece - especially the Durga - if you get the chance. I think you might be surprised at the result.

        I have spent more money over the years searching for the right mouthpiece and tenor sax to produce the sound & performance that I desire. The quality of every product they produce is A+. Find a Theo Wanne dealer like SAM ASH near you to try these products.
