Premium hard rubber and optimized design delivers versatile sound.

The DURGA 4 alto has a big, rich and contemporary sound. Due to its unique chamber, it also plays amazing ballads. The DURGA 4 does everything the DURGA 3 did, just better. Through research & development, Theo has optimized the baffle and chamber to accept airflow better. You will get a much fuller, yet freer-blowing, mouthpiece. The DURGA has a step-baffle for power, but also deeply rounded inner side walls leading into Theo Wanne's Inverted-Power-Ring. This gives it the full sound inherent in a True Large Chamber, plus extra projection. This is why it can scream and be mellow depending on your mood. "Wow, is all I can say about this mouthpiece! It’s all I ever wanted in an alto mouthpiece." – Warren Ham (Ringo Starr, Olivia Newton John) The DURGA 4 alto is has been used on tour with Ringo Starr (Warren Ham) and Prince (Adrian Crutchfield), as well as such jazz superstars as Nelson Rangell. Theo is truly breaking new ground with this mouthpiece as little has been done with modern large chamber alto mouthpieces. This is partly why the DURGA alto is such a stand out. There is nothing 'vintage' or modern like it. The DURGA 4 has evolved from the DURGA 1, 2 and 3 with far more core and body to the sound. A hard rubber mouthpiece you'll love having in your arsenal.
