Description

The DURGA 4 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!

From the manuafacturer:

The DURGA 4 alto has a big, rich and contemporary sound, but due to its unique chamber it also plays amazing ballads.

Our feedback has been that the DURGA 4 does everything the DURGA 3 did, just better. Indeed this was our intention, as the DURGA Alto has become a true classic in the saxophone world and we didn’t want to change the base sound signature. By continued 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 our Inverted-Power-Ring™, giving it the full sound inherent in a True Large Chamber AND 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 by 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 in the market. There is nothing ‘vintage’ or modern like it. It is available in 24K gold plate, and premium hard rubber! The DURGA 4 has evolved from the DURGA 1, 2 and 3 with far more core and body to the sound.
