The DURGA tenor has an even bigger, richer, contemporary sound. It is powerful and warm sounding simultaneously. So it can scream and play amazing ballads. No longer does the saxophonist need to have a thin sound in order to get huge power and projection. The sound is just downright sexy!
Our feedback has been that the DURGA 4 does everything the DURGA 3 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. The secret to the DURGA 4 comes from Theo’s latest research and development, coming up with a newly designed baffle coupled with conical inner side walls and a special version of our True Large Chamber incorporating an Inverted-Power-Ring™. The Inverted Power Ring™ is set at the back of the chamber and works with the physics principle of ‘boundary layer effect’ much like a golf ball’s dimples. This allows the mouthpiece to get all the benefits of our True Large Chamber AND the extra power needed for contemporary playing.
No other mouthpiece in history has been designed like this; it will blow you away since it can both scream and play a soft ballad. It is so much fun to play! Its huge sound makes everything before it sound thin and/or stuffy by comparison.
