For sale is a prime era vintage Dukoff Miami D8* Sanborn alto mouthpiece with box and ligature!
These mouthpiece's are LOUD & PROUD instantly giving that classic David Sanborn sound!
This mouthpiece is a real deal very vintage Miami fat body with the yellow sticker and very old ligature style.
This mouthpiece has some strong patina, metal wear, tarnish on the table so please check that out in pictures!
Not all Dukoffs are created equally! Way back when there was a change over in mouthpiece production this was the separation of vintage Dukoff pieces from the modern production pieces that are still currently being made.
Most of all the Dukoff's being sold on Ebay do not actually say Miami, FL on them! They just say Dukoff, with no Miami.
Any Dukoff piece that says Miami on it stamped in a real deal Miami piece before the production change overs from some 20 25 years ago.
90% of the mouthpieces being sold are modern production. These modern mouthpieces sell for a fraction of the cost, and don't play anywhere near the prime era pieces.
Players and collectors seek out the vintage pieces as they are some of the best playing mouthpieces ever made!
Legendary mouthpiece visionary Bobby Dukoff unfortunately passed away in 2012. Ever since then collectors and players have been hoarding any and all Dukoff Miami stamped pieces, swooping up any that make it to market.
Back in the day these pieces used to be much easier to obtain, but now these days the collectors market has gone crazy on them and they have become extremely scarce!
This mouthpiece is being sold as USED and has its fair share of scratches, Knicks, dings, dents, fleabites, metal wear, tarnish, patina and other used anomalies associated with a used vintage mouthpiece that you stick in your mouth and bite on!
Its really not often these Miami's pop up for sale so if you have been looking for a Dukoff and love this piece please do not hesitate to buy and pay over, we will ship ASAP upon payment!
