The DURGA 5 tenor has a fuller, richer, and more expressive sound.
It is powerful and fat sounding simultaneously. So it can scream and play amazing ballads. No longer does the saxophonist need to have a thin sound in order to get huge power and projection. 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. So, we refined it by adding a fullness and core to the sound. The secret to the DURGA 5 is the result of in-depth research and development, culminating in updates to the unique DURGA baffle, and the addition of the Medium-Stadium-Chamber™. This chamber is a brand new concept, allowing the mouthpiece to get all the benefits of our True Large Chamber™, but with the extra core of a smaller chamber at the same time.
No other mouthpiece in history has been designed like this. Its combination of baffle and chamber are so versatile is can scream or play a soft ballad. Its huge sound makes everything before it sound thin and/or stuffy by comparison. It is so much fun to play!
The DURGA tenor is being used by superstars such as Marcus Anderson (Prince), Adrian Crutchfield (Bette Midler), Tim Izo Orindgreff (Black Eyed Peas), Mark Douthit (Elton John) and Dino Soldo (Lionel Riche)! The DURGA 5 has evolved from the DURGA 1, 2, 3 and 4 with more fullness and core to the sound, extending the dynamic range of your horn, and a greater sense of ‘freedom of expression’.
