Not from experience, I've never had the chance with Theo's pieces, but I remember when they first came out and everyone was talking about how amazing they were. So, yes, I don't imagine anything theo has made is anything less than a great piece.I am very interested in durgas but I'm afraid that if I get a durga 1 It'll be significantly worse than a durga 3 or 4. Do you know if it's still a good piece or is it smarter to save for a 3?
It may not be easy to get a Durga 3 since I don't think Theo is making them anymore and there don't seem to be many places that have them in stock. I'm not sure there was a Durga 2. If there was it wasn't around for long. I'm also not sure how the 3 and 4 compare or why when the 3 was so well received by most, Theo felt like he needed to change it.I am very interested in durgas but I'm afraid that if I get a durga 1 It'll be significantly worse than a durga 3 or 4.

Ebay US there are two Durgas under $400I've been playing on this vintage metal berg for a few years now and I'm looking for something with more power, I'd love a durga 3 for my bari but they aren't in my price range. Any suggestions on pieces like a durga?
The SuperJet is going to be much brighter than the DV. Based upon the pictures I've seen I'd suspect the Durga 3 is similar to the JJ DV and the Shiva is probably more like the Jet or SuperJet. You might want to try the JJ Jet. They are much cheaper then the metal pieces around $230 new and you may be able to find a used one for much less.Thank you this is very helpful, I've been looking into the jody jazz pieces and I'm unsure which piece is best the DV or the superjet does anyone know if there is a significant difference in the two? And also how do they compare to the durgas?
Yeah, that's not a power piece there. Do you like Bergs though? You could always try one with a 1 or 0 chamber. Just seems silly to drop hundreds of dollars for a piece you've never tried. Just make sure you can either return it or don't overspend on a used piece so you can flip it for the same value should it not work out.It's a 110/2 with a somewhat custom facing because I had to have the table flattened because it was uneven.
