Gerald Albright

– 2-Time Grammy Nominee
“The Durga 3 Soprano Mouthpiece is amazing! It produces a happy medium between warmth, projection, and brightness. This is a very versatile tool.”

Testimonial

I LOVE the Shiva! The Shiva is a beast! Great projection, very even, and altissimo access is flawless! This is my mouthpiece of choice for tenor! I’m a happy man. This is exactly why I want to endorse your products. I’m primarily a tenor player but having to work so hard with mouthpieces in the past has been draining…..not anymore. I LOVE the Shiva…just what the doctor ordered! I Love the brightness, and the “added” surprise is how full-bodied it is! I’m a happy man. – Gerald Albright

Inspiration

Q:How do you feel when you are “In the Zone?”
A:I truly feel connected to the music when I can mirror every idea that I perform exactly how it was meant to be in that moment. The validation of that oneness is when the audience that listens to it is also moved by that same connection to the music. Hence, total harmony.
