Get the Fullest Sounding Alto Mouthpiece Ever Made - The Theo Wanne Durga 5 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece - Gold 8

The DURGA 5 does everything the DURGA 4 does, but with more core and body to the sound. Since the DURGA Alto has become a true classic in the saxophone world, Theo Wanne didn’t want to change the base sound signature. But They did want to update it with some of Theo’s new technology. Hence, it now has a Medium-Stadium-Chamber™, and a new technology in creation of the baffle. By continued research & development, Theo has optimized the baffle and chamber to accept airflow even better. You will get a much fuller, yet freer blowing, mouthpiece. And it's so much fun to play!


  • Great for Jazz, R&B, and Rock & Roll
  • Projects a sensual tone that is flirtatious, and makes everyone want to dance!
  • Radical proprietary Medium-Stadium-Chamber™
  • Rounded inner side walls all the way to the tip
  • Uniquely shaped long step baffle
  • Crafted to the highest accuracy in the history of saxophone mouthpieces
  • Designed by Theo Wanne, the foremost expert on the design and manufacturing of vintage and new mouthpieces


The DURGA has a step-baffle for power, but also deeply rounded inner side walls leading into our Medium-Stadium-Chamber™, giving it the full sound inherent in a True Large Chamber AND extra projection. This is why it can scream and be mellow depending on your mood.

The DURGA alto is has been used on tour with Ringo Starr (Warren Ham) and Prince (Adrian Crutchfield) as well as by such Jazz Superstars as Nelson Rangell! Theo is truly breaking new ground with this mouthpiece as little has been done with modern large chamber alto mouthpieces. This is partly why the DURGA alto is such a stand out in the market. There is nothing ‘vintage’ or modern like it.
