Theo Wanne DURGA Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
DURGA3 Metal – 2nd Generation
The DURGA tenor has a rich and full contemporary sound.
It has a uniquely designed baffle (part of Theo’s patented interior design) coupled with deeply rounded inner side walls, and a special power version of his True Large Chamber. The power version of the True Large Chamber incorporates a power ring which radically tapers the True Large Chamber down to a small chamber giving it the full sound inherent in our True Large Chamber AND the power of a small chamber.
2nd Generation Chamber Design
The new DURGA tenor models feature an inverted “power ring” design. The 1st Gen models used a power ring that decreased the bore of the chamber drastically before the air column enters the horn. The new 2nd Gen models do the opposite. The new power ring is more appropriately called a “power groove” as it is a grove that increases the bore slightly and then shrinks back down. This concept provides the same type of response due to the creation of a turbulence layer at the groove, but allows for better air flow on the DURGA tenor mouthpiece giving even more power than before!
KesslerMusic Free Gift!
With every Theo Wanne mouthpiece, we include a free Free “Heavy Copper” reed plate. Theo includes his standard “Alive” reed plate with each mouthpiece. We then asked Theo to build us a custom, heavier reed plate that we could give away with every mouthpiece. This heavy copper plate gives a richer core to the tone of the mouthpiece and also helps provide better reed sealing for thinner reeds. Just another example of Kessler & Sons Music going the extra step for our customers!

The DURGA tenor mouthpiece has the most technically advanced design and manufacturing process of any mouthpiece in history. The result is a powerful mouthpiece with a huge core and breadth of sound. No longer does the saxophonist need to have a thin sound in order to get huge power and projection. The DURGA tenor mouthpiece is both powerful and fat sounding simultaneously. The sound is just downright sexy!
The secret to the DURGA tenor mouthpiece lies in a uniquely designed baffle coupled with deeply rounded inner side walls and a special power version of Theo’s True Large Chamber incorporating a Power Ring. The Power Ring is set at the back of the chamber that radically tapers the chamber down. This allows the mouthpiece to get all the benefits of our True Large Chamber AND the power inherent in small chamber mouthpieces.
No other mouthpiece in history has been designed like this before; it will blow you away. 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 in comparison!
