The DURGA alto has a big, rich, and contemporary sound. It is both powerful and modern, but due to its unique chamber, it can also play amazing ballads.
It has a special version of our True Large Chamber which adds an Inverted-Power-Ring™, giving it the full sound inherent in our True Large Chamber AND extra power to cut through. The uniquely designed baffle transitions into the chamber with deeply rounded inner side walls.
Large chambers have been widely explored in the history of tenor mouthpieces, but very little has been done with alto mouthpieces, until now. Theo Wanne’s new True Large Chamber alto mouthpieces are breaking new ground, and opening up a whole new world for the alto saxophone.
The DURGA3 Alto is available in 24K gold plated brass, premium hard rubber, and the Blue A.R.T. material (all are available to order if not in stock).
The DURGA3 has a straight-step baffle, with a slight roll-over built in to give extra 'kick'. This helps match the normal 'ring' found in metal mouthpieces.
Blue A.R.T. is a very special and expensive material which further increases vibration in your horn. Go Blue A.R.T. if you want the maximum performance from a 'hard rubber' style mouthpiece! In addition, Blue A.R.T. is safe for those with allergies and more stable. If you are in the sun or extensive heat hard rubber can oxidise and distort, however Blue A.R.T. will not.
Great for Jazz, R&B, and Rock & Roll.
Projects a sensual tone that is flirtatious and erotic. It makes everyone want to dance!
It is so unique; it really has to be played to be understood and believed.
