The Durga #8 is my drug of choice. Beyond enhancing my tone, it has revolutionized my approach to creating and manipulating sound on the horn. I have been playing on a Theo Wanne Durga #8 alto mouthpiece for 4+ years and it has literally changed my life. I have tested out many other mouthpieces but this one is hands down the best mouthpiece I have ever used. I love the tone I am able to get from it and the control is amazing. I can go from a dark smooth sound to an explosive edgy sound in seconds, with little to no effort. It’s such a versatile mouthpiece and really makes my work easy as a player.
