View Full Description
Similar to all other Theo Wanne products, the Durga 3 tenor sax mouthpiece is manufactured using advanced machining techniques to ensure every mouthpiece is exactly the same. The True Large Chamber in the Durga 3 mouthpiece is larger than the bore and creates a rich and full sounding tone. Like other professional mouthpieces, the Durga 3 is crafted from professional grade brass to ensure the best quality. Once the Durga 3 has been finished, it is professionally plated with 24K gold with a reticulated finish to enhance airflow. The logo has special highlights for a truly luxurious finish.
The Durga 3 Design
The Theo Wanne Durga 3 Tenor Sax Mouthpiece is a professional mouthpiece for saxophonists that require a large sound. The tip found on the Durga 3 metal 8 mouthpiece requires more air compared to the 7 model but can produce a wider tone. This amount of resistance is essential for producing the large sound required for a rock & roll tone. The tip holds good intonation and only requires a small amount of effort to bend notes when required.
The Theo Wanne Durga 3 Tenor Sax Mouthpiece includes everything you need to look after the mouthpiece. The included beautiful leatherette case will ensure that the mouthpiece is always protected when travelling. The integrated two-point contact 24K gold plated Liberty Ligature makes sure the reed is always held securely. The Durga 3 also includes a reed replacer cap and user replaceable bite pads. Every Theo Wanne mouthpiece is supplied with a unique serial number.

"The DURGA is the Perfect mouthpiece for me! I absolutely Love the DURGA! It gives me a fat tone but I also get that “center” and clarity to my sound that I’ve been seeking for so long. I haven’t played a mouthpiece I believe gave me everything I needed, until now. Now I don’t have to fight the mouthpiece to compensate for what I feel is lacking in it. The DURGA has exactly what I need to help me get the sound I hear in my head. Theo’s attention to detail is unparalleled. Thanks again Theo!" Keith McKelley (Earth Wind & Fire, Usher, David Mason)
"The DURGA is the ultimate and most original metal mouthpiece of our era. The innovative design and love that Theo Wanne made this with is spellbinding. When I play this mouthpiece it’s like a path to true self-expression. It’s essence along with a flowing natural feel is sensual and soulfully ambient as well as soul-stirring. This is an inspiring addition to the collection of one-of-a-kind mouthpieces by Theo Wanne." Tim Price (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
"When I first tried the DURGA I was simply blown away by the power and response of this beautifully crafted mouthpiece. The mouthpiece has incredible projection and presence but with the warmth and finesse that other ‘Super Power’ pieces out there lack. I would have no hesitation in saying, with its revolutionary and unique design, ease of playing in all registers including effortless harmonics and easy sub-tones make this the best tenor sax mouthpiece available today!"
