DURGA 3 SOPRANO MOUTHPIECE
We sincerely believe the DURGA 3 soprano is the fullest sounding soprano mouthpiece ever made, and the feedback we've been getting confirms that! We are incredibly proud of it!!!!
It has a step baffle with a slight roll-over leading into an Inverted-Power-Ring™. The Inverted-Power-Ring™ has the fullness of a True-Large-Chamber but tons of core too!!!! Don't let the high baffle fool you, it does not sound thin or nasal....just full and BIG like you've never heard a soprano mouthpiece sound before!
Theo has worked on large chamber soprano mouthpieces for many decades, and the result from customer requests is the DURGA 3 soprano. It is a unique work of art, that will take your soprano places you may not even know existed. Yes, we are very proud of this mouthpiece:)

"I didn't know a soprano could sound this good!”
- John F.
“Bravo!!!!! The Durga 3 soprano mouthpiece is a robust, full bodied workhorse of a mouthpiece. The low end of my expensive Soprano sounds quite full, especially the Bb, with a Wayne Shorteresqe...full sound , dark and rich...the Durga 3 plays even from bottom to my altissimo G....very easy and a joy to play...allows the horn to play in tune without any unnecessary back pressure!”
- Louis VanTaylor (Kool and the Gang)
"OMG! The Durga 3 soprano piece is amazing. Focused core that works with any type of music. Warm, but edgy when needed. Silky smoothing the bottom with an awesome altissimo. Even sonically from top to bottom. Truly an amazing mouthpiece. You did it again Theo."
- Keyan Williams
"I just wanted to tell you that I received my Durga 3 for soprano sax and it is awesome. This is by far the best soprano mouthpiece that I have ever played. The sound is very clean and pristine. Please thank Theo Wanne and his staff for such a remarkable mouthpiece."
"Hi, Theo! I recently heard an video of your new Durga 3 on soprano sax. The sound is perfect and it makes me feel like I'm hearing an Alto sax! This kind of thick sound is what i am looking for! Thanks for your perfect work!"
"The Durga 3 soprano is the best mouthpiece I ever used on soprano. The sound is smart, easy to control and shows player's characteristics."
- Chi Ying Chen
"I can't believe this is a metal piece. It sounds so full!! When can I get one?"
"Wow, I never thought I would like a high-baffle soprano piece so much. This is so balanced and rich sounding. It's not too bright at all!"
"This is an incredibly even piece. I don't have to make all of the usual adjustments to my tone and intonation in order to sound good. It does all of the work for me!! On top of that, the combination of high baffle and large chamber give a response that is both fast, but full at the same time! Way to go, Theo!!"

"What the heck? WOW!!!!!”

Two DURGA Soprano Mouthpieces Review by Westcoast Sax
"This thing is unbelievable! Fat, warm, rich, clear, brilliant, elegant, everything you could want in a soprano mouthpiece! Theo, you really did a good job on this thing. It’s unbelievable!" - Westcoast Sax Review
Best Soprano Mouthpiece Ever Made!
"The Durga 3 Soprano Mouthpiece blew me away literally!! I have tried tons of soprano mouthpieces and there is nothing like this, not even close! As soon as I put the Mouthpiece on my neck it was already in tune. The sound is sonically Huge, Fat, Warm and Bright at the same time!! The consistency of the notes up and down the register was amazing, all remaining in tune! Most pieces are hard to stay in tune in the altissimo range, but this does, and easily too. The low Bb was easy to get with this mouthpiece and a warm low end! I was inspired by Mindi Abair's new Theo Wanne Alto mouthpiece, but there was nothing like it on Soprano, until now! The Durga 3 is definitely a Game Changer for the new age of saxophone playing!! Thank you Theo Wanne for being a Genius!!" - Steve S. Review
Theo has created another winner!
"Wow, I just received the new Durga Gold Soprano mouthpiece from Theo Wanne and it plays beautifully. It plays very smoothly from top to bottom and yet has that familiar Durga edge that cuts through without being harsh. Theo has created another winner. I just love playing this mouthpiece!." - Saxophone Insights Seattle Review
