Theo Wanne | Durga 5 Gold Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece




The DURGA V does everything the DURGA IV did, just better. Indeed, this was our intention, as the DURGA has become a classic in the saxophone world, and we didn’t want to change the base sound signature. So, we refined it by adding a fullness and core to the sound. The secret to the DURGA V is the result of in-depth research and development, culminating in updates to the unique DURGA baffle, and the addition of the Medium-Stadium-Chamber™. This chamber is a brand new concept, allowing the mouthpiece to get all the benefits of our True Large Chamber™, but with the extra core of a smaller chamber at the same time.

No other mouthpiece in history has been designed like this. Its combination of baffle and chamber are so versatile it can scream or play a soft ballad. Its huge sound makes everything before it sound thin or stuffy by comparison. It is SO much fun to play!

The DURGA tenor is being used by superstars such as Marcus Anderson (Prince), Adrian Crutchfield (Bette Midler), Tim Izo Orindgreff (Black Eyed Peas), Mark Douthit (Elton John) and Dino Soldo (Lionel Riche)!  The DURGA V has evolved from the DURGA 1, 2, 3 and 4 with more fullness and core to the sound, extending the dynamic range of your horn, and a greater sense of ‘freedom of expression’.

“The DURGA is the culmination of many years of research and testing. We are overjoyed to unleash it into the world. No longer do we, as saxophonists, have to suffer with a thin and nasal sound in order to get huge power and projection. The DURGA is at once, powerful and hugely projecting and fat, warm, and huge! The combination is just downright sexy!

Our TRUE Large Chamber (much like the vintage mouthpieces of the 1940s but technically superior due to our patent-pending machining technology) ensures an even warmer and fatter sound than the great classics of yesteryear.

The secret to the DURGA lies in a uniquely designed baffle coupled with deeply rounded inner side walls, and a special power version of our True Large Chamber that incorporates a Power Ring. The Power Ring is a ring set at the back of the chamber that radically tapers the chamber down. This allows the mouthpiece to get all the benefits of our True Large Chamber AND the power inherent in small chamber mouthpieces.

No other mouthpiece in history has been designed like this before, and it will simply blow you away. It is so much fun to play! It has that huge Link sound, but makes everything before it just sound stuffy in comparison!”

This mouthpiece looks and plays great and we hope you enjoy them too!
