For sale is a prime era vintage Dukoff Miami LD10 tenor saxophone mouthpiece!!!
This mouthpiece is LOUD & PROUD but with a full bodied extremely well balanced full lushness!The LD is the Large Chamber D10! Its extremely rare to find these LDs and they play absolutely glorious! Many people love how Dukoff's play but however perhaps they may be a touch shrill or bright for there ears, but they love how the Dukoff feels to play. These large chamber LDs solve that and take away that shrillness and really balance things out! On a Dukoff Tenor piece the LDs perform amazing to me!
This mouthpiece comes with its original ligature!Not all Dukoffs are created equally! Way back when there was a huge 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 over.
90% of the mouthpieces being sold are modern production. These modern mouthpieces sell for a fraction of the cost, and dont 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 although its in great condition it does have scratches, Knicks, dings, , fleabites, metal wear, tarnish, patina and other used anomalies associated with a used vintage mouthpiece!
Its really not often a LD10 Miami tenor piece pops up for sale so if you have been looking for one you will love this piece so please do not hesitate to buy and pay over, I will ship ASAP upon payment!
