Theo has produced ANOTHER upgrade to his legendary Durga line, the DURGA 5.  The previous model was already considered an incredible piece by many players the world over, but the latest developments, particularly centering around the all-new 'Stadium Chamber' offer even more core and juice in the overall playing experience!

From the manuafacturer:

The DURGA 5 does everything the DURGA 4 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. We just refined it by adding a fullness/core to the sound.   The secret to the DURGA 5 comes from Theo’s latest research and development, which has centered around updating the unique DURGA baffle with a very special chamber called the Medium-Stadium-Chamber™. This new chamber is completely new, 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 core of a smaller chamber at the same time.

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 

The DURGA tenor is also being used on tour with Marcus Anderson (Prince), Adrian Crutchfield (Bette Midler), Tim Izo Orindgreff (Black Eyed Peas), Mark Douthit (Elton John) and by such Superstars such as Dino Saldo! The DURGA 5 has evolved from the DURGA 1, 2, 3 and 4 with more fullness and core to the sound, extending the dynamic range of your horn, and a greater sense of ‘freedom of expression’.
