What economists call inverse price elasticity - something becomes more desirable as the price goes up. That's how perfume pricing works. Good on you, Pete, for having the moral standards to not do this.I did at one stage think of charging three times as much for the PPTs, as people might then think it's a better mouthpiece, but I found I could not justify that morally.
I don't think you could patent a mouthpiece - it's all been done before. Many existing mouthpieces are based on older designs of well established manufacturers - or are direct copies.Are all expensive mouthpiece patented? If not, i think the Chinese can produce them to the exact geometry and sell at £29.99.
Just seen this so here i am.I thought they were crazy high priced,yes they do cost loads of your hard earned dosh but for me who is a gear nut and has owned,spent loads on all the other mp's i now dont mind as the Durgas do it all for me.I was always wanting a mix of a great Guardala and a metal Link type of piece that was free blowing and with easy response,well thats what i get on my durgas.You will be amazed at the perfect work done on these,as i have said before they are art in your mouth.Theo has done alot of work on his concept of A TRUE LARGE CHAMBER mp and when you blow it it's huge so with my Mauriat tenor it shakes the building.For me they work and i love them but we all different.I have always went for high baffle pieces but as with most they can be to bright and thin,well the durga is very fat,Link like and ticks all my box's.I'm just waiting for our Theo Wanne proponent to chime in... Where are you Davey?
