I haven't played either the Gaia or Durga, so keep that in mind. But I would bet that the Black Widow would fit what you seem to be looking for. A big, projecting sound, bright enough when pushed, but never shrill, and not too edgy.In the Gaia 3 thread, I posted a question about moving from the Durga 3 (8*) to the Gaia 3. For R&B/soul type of music, I'm afraid I may not have enough projection/cut against all the amped up instruments. I love how Theo's Durga responds and it's very easy to play, but I'd love the Durga even more if I could make it a bit darker and/or take the edge off a little more. Mind you, I'm being a little picky here.
