The DURGA baritone is the culmination of many years of research and testing. It produces a simply HUGE sound that takes the Baritone Saxophone to a whole new level. REALLY! The baritone saxophone is like a whole new, improved, instrument with the DURGA mouthpiece. As there has never been a mouthpiece designed like the DURGA before (especially for baritone) it must be played to be understood. It really is breathtaking.
Due to the nature of the DURGA design and the baritone’s already robust sound, the DURGA baritone mouthpiece is exceedingly versatile and we recommend it for most types of music.
The DURGA has the most technically advanced design (PATENTED) and manufacturing process (PATENT PENDING) of any mouthpiece in history. The result is a powerful mouthpiece with a huge core and breadth of sound. It can both scream and play a soft ballad. The DURGA baritone really does everything well.
The secret to the DURGA lies in a uniquely designed baffle coupled with deeply rounded inner side walls and a special power version of our True Large Chamber incorporating a Power Ring. The Power Ring is a ring 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.
The DURGA mouthpiece is so unique and so much fun to play you just won’t want to put your horn down!

"I am playing on both the tenor and baritone DURGA mouthpieces which are incredible in every way. The DURGA mouthpieces remain my favorite because of the versatility and the tremendous dynamics that are possible with them. As a studio and jazz player I need to be very subtle at times and then I need to utterly explode. The DURGA definitely fills the bill. Once again, you have created the most amazing mouthpiece that incorporates so many wonderful musical possibilities. Congratulations on another masterpiece!” -Terry Harrington (Lisa Simpson's Sax on The Simpsons for 20 years)
"After testing a couple of mouthpieces, looking for clarity in the upper range, full sound and more power without harshness, I am now completely satisfied with my Durga 8# for my baritone.
Love this piece. Easy blowing, clear sound from all angles (loud and screaming to almost cello-like classic timbre.
You really know what You are doing ;-)))))))))))))))
And your advertising says, unlike others, the truth.” -Wolfgang W.
“The DURGA is here and......I AM SPEECHLESS. No kidding. I need a few days till I get un-daZed from it. There’s so much in it...man…I'm at an all time bliss. For the record- THE BEST METAL BARI MOUTHPIECE MADE TODAY. It’s made better than you could dream of-and it plays. Nuff said.” -Tim Price
“I've been 'out there’ gigging for well over 45 years and I the DURGA is the best piece that I have ever used. I can't believe the ease with which the DURGA baritone plays. The sound is stronger when needed than my custom made metal Lawton. I'm using it in all venues I play in, shows, big band and blues band sections and it delivers what I need for all. It’s a keeper” -Brian
“The Bari DURGA is off the hook. OMG!!! Please see if anyone wants to buy my Lawton Bari.” -Mike
