Durga has a wide variety of tones. If you want it is soft and mellow, if you want it is violent and powerful, this is why I love it. Its dynamic capabilities and complete accuracy make my performance even more expressive. I think one of the most difficult choice for a saxophonist is to find the perfect mouthpiece, which makes him competent enough to control his instrument and freely form the right sounds. I am happy and grateful that I found that in the Theo Wanne™ Durga.
