Here's what Thoe Wanne says abou the Durga:
» Great for Jazz, R&B, and Rock & Roll.
» Fills a room effortlessly, making everyone dance!
» It is so unique, it really has to be played to be understood and believed.
» Radical Power-Version of our True Large Chamber!
» Rounded inner side walls all the way to the tip.
» Uniquely shaped long step baffle.
"The DURGA alto has a rich and full contemporary sound.
It has a uniquely designed baffle (part of our patented interior design) coupled with deeply rounded inner side walls, and a special power version of our True Large Chamber. The power version of our True Large Chamber incorporates a power ring which radically tapers the True Large Chamber down to a small chamber giving it the full sound inherent in our True Large Chamber AND the power of a small chamber.
It is so much fun to play you just won't want to put your horn down!
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, opening up a whole new world for the alto saxophone."
This mouthpiece looks and plays great and we hope you enjoy them too!
