DURGA BARITONE MOUTHPIECE

 

The DURGA baritone produces a simply HUGE sound that takes the Baritone Saxophone to a whole new level. REALLY! The baritone saxophone feels like a an 'improved' instrument.

Also, due to the nature of the DURGA design it is exceedingly versatile and we recommend it for almost all types of music. 

There has never been a mouthpiece designed like the DURGA baritone.  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. 



If you have watched the legendary TV show 'The Simpson's', then you have heard the DURGA baritone mouthpiece.  Lisa Simpson's solos are all recorded on the DURGA!

The DURGA mouthpiece is so freeing, and fun to play, you won’t want to put your horn down!

          "WWWOOOOWW!  The DURGA Baritone is everything I had hoped it would be.  I have been searching for a mouthpiece that would play like this for soooo long.  Theo truly has a handle on what needs to be done.  I played it for three hours straight last night.  Couldn't put it down…..  The heavy brass ligature plate locked the focus in so well.  I couldn't believe what a difference there was between plates.  Theo knows what he is talking about.  Please pass the word to Theo that he has hit another home run!” Steve

           

          “The DURGA baritone mouthpiece is the best I've ever had, and believe me, I have tried many!   It has full and rich notes with gravity and the high notes are much more open.”   - Nedo Carli

           

          “My Theo Wanne DURGA Bari Mouthpiece is AWESOME!!!  The mouthpiece rocks from soft ballad style to TOP style and everything in between.” - Zach F

           

          "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.

           

          "I recently purchased the DURGA 7* for baritone.  I was shocked at how easy it was to play (I use Rico #4's). Not only the volume, which is what MOST modern mouthpieces give you, but the overall symmetry of the tone from top to the bottom was outstanding!  I am currently the only reed player in the Broadway revival of HAIR and the book is 90% baritone. The pleasure your mp gives to me every performance is so gratifying and the guys seem to notice that the tunes where I get to stretch out, since I'm NOT worrying about the horn, reed , mp, etc, are more spontaneous! What a wonder. No stress,  just slap a reed on and have a great time. Thanks again for a great piece. I usually play vintage pieces but the DURGA really turned my head around.” - Allen Won

           

          "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

           

          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

           

          "I think the Durga has to be the new gold standard against which all other bari mouthpieces are measured.   The R&B setting is a great test for baritone sax - playing at the extreme top and bottom range of the horn, clarity of sound, intonation, blend, power, dynamic control.   The DURGA addressed all of the issues I was having in this setting." - Steve Bagnell

           

          "I have not played a better mouthpiece than the DURGA baritone!"  -Greg Abate

           

          The Bari DURGA is off the hook. OMG!!! Please see if anyone wants to buy my Lawton Bari. -Mike

          Tim Price on the DURGA baritone sax mouthpiece

           

           

          "Craftsmanship to die for. Great packaging. But enough of that, how did it play? This mouthpiece was great! Great tone and projection. The Durga, I believe, is the brightest tenor model so I was fearful that this mouthpiece would be too bright. That was not the case at all. Nice rich core but it still kicks. Easy articulation from top to bottom. I could even double tongue a low A!(Like I'm gonna need that).  This may be the model that finally gets me to change bari mouthpieces." - shortwhite (SOTW Review)

           

          "Ok guys...I just tried an 8* and bought it on the spot. Just fantastic. As soon as I got home I got a bit of buyers remorse thinking about how much I just spent. Then I tried the mouthpiece again and it all disappeared. This is THE bari mouthpiece. Nice modern sound with depth, color and flexibility. My bari feels like a big tenor with this piece, it feels a lot like my florida link on tenor if that makes sense, the same speed, flexibility and core, just with some lower notes. Keep an eye out for my other bari mouthpieces on the marketplace..." - dshook (SOTW Review)

           

          "The mouthpiece is remarkably easy to play. Intonation was great through all the registers, and it has a smoothness of response and fluidity throughout the range of the horn and all the dynamic ranges that feels almost effortless. I felt while I was playing it almost as if I was playing a tenor on steroids, rather than a baritone. It has a full sound, but also some bite when pushed. If I was looking for a mouthpiece or was a mouthpiece collector, I would not hesitate to buy it. I think it is a remarkable and versatile piece that could sound great in almost any playing situation, particularly well suited to playing fast and tight." - Tom Hall (SOTW Review)

           

          "The Durga is a stunner to look at and clearly a superior piece of craftsmanship. To my surprise it was as near to effortless as bari playing gets. I was able to acclimate to the piece and setup instantly. It is a joy to play. I loved it. The response is smooth and even , it is not overly bright or edgy to my surprise. It is very versatile and feels like it could be made to work in pretty much any possible setting. It is very easy to understand the enthusiasm of guys like Brian and Tim. It is rare to get on a piece and feel as instantly comfortable as I did with this one especially as it is quite different from my own setup." - Kritavi (SOTW Review)

           

          "I got a Durga to try about two weeks ago, it was his "vintified" model about a .105 tip which is my favorite size. I've been "out there" gigging for well over 45 years many of them on the road with various bands Worldwide and more ghost bands than I can recall. When I opened the box and saw the beautiful packaging and meticulous maching, I was very impressed with it all. I put a new reed on and put it on my Yani 992. I couldn't believe the ease with which it played and the sound was even stronger when needed than my custom made metal Lawton. I was so impressed with it that I practiced for about a half hour and took it on my gig that very night and got nothing but compliments from the tenor player next to me. The next day I tried it on my "backup" bari, a Yani/Vito stencil VSP and it sounded even stronger on the brass bari than on the bronze one. A keeper! I think it's the best piece that I have ever used to this point. 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." -  Baribri NJ (SOTW Review)
