The DURGA 5 tenor has a fuller, richer, and more expressive sound. It is powerful and warm sounding simultaneously with an added core and thickness to the sound. The sound is just downright sexy!
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.
