Theo Wanne #9 Metal Mouthpiece for Tenor Sax with Original Packaging. 

The mouthpiece was never played without a patch.  The tip, table and rails are in EXCELLENT condition.  In fact, except for some light scratches on the table, this is in like new condition.  Brand new, these are nearly $800- so you can save a few buck by getting this one at the "buy it now" price!

Included is the original box and instructions, adjustable "leave on" ligature, extra pressure plate and 2 screws for ligature, 2 screwdrivers (1 for changing pressure plate, 1 for adjusting ligature), handsome zip up mouthpiece pouch, plastic "reed replacer" table and tip guard and of course, the mouthpiece itself.  The serial number on this is "2D44", meaning that this was the 44th mouthpiece produced in the second run of Durga tenor mouthpieces.

The tip opening measures a 0.116" or 2.96 mm on my guage.

The Durga is the brightest of the Theo Wanne line.  It has the "True Large Chamber" and rounded side walls like all of the pro models, but this one has a high step baffle that rolls down into a bullet shape before entering the chamber.  This model is the only model to make use of the "Power Ring", which is a ring shaped constriction in the throat of the chamber that focuses the air as it travels to the neck for more projection. 

I think this mouthpiece sounds great and actually stopped playing my handmade Guardala traditional model because of Theo's amazing work on these mouthpieces.  The Durga reminds me of a Guardala MBII or Studio model, but with more core to the sound, especially in the palm keys and low notes.  I currently use a Kali model, which is the next darker model in Theo's line.  It is rare that I need anything with as much volume and projection as this Durga has, so I am putting it out for someone who can use it to melt some faces!

Here's what Theo's site has to say about these:



The DURGA has the most technically advanced design (PATENTED) and manufacturing process (PATENT PENDING) of any mouthpiece in history. The result is a powerful mouthpiece with a huge core and breath of sound. No longer does the saxophonist need to have a thin sound in order to get huge power and projection. The DURGA is both powerful and fat sounding simultaneously. The sound is just downright sexy! 

The secret to the DURGA lies in a uniquely designed baffle coupled with deeply rounded inner side walls and a special power version of our True Large Chamber incorporating a Power Ring. The Power Ring is a ring set at the back of the chamber that radically tapers the chamber down. This allows the mouthpiece to get all the benefits of our True Large Chamber AND the power inherent in small chamber mouthpieces. 

No other mouthpiece in history has been designed like this before; it will blow you away. It can both scream and play a soft ballad. It is so much fun to play! Its huge sound makes everything before it sound thin and/or stuffy in comparison!
