For sale is a prime era vintage Dukoff Miami D8 tenor sax mouthpiece with its original box and ligature!!
These mouthpieces are LOUD & PROUD! Think Michael Brecker vibes!
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. Plays 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 that Bobby has passed and the mouthpieces aren't the same the collectors market has gone crazy on them and they have become extremely scarce!
The value of these pieces continues rise as the pieces are only getting harder procure!
This mouthpiece is being sold as used and has extreme patina with 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!
This mouthpiece is a bit of an ugly duckling so please make sure your okay with that!
If you have been looking for a prime era Dukoff please don't hesitate to buy and pay over I will ship ASAP upon payment!
