Quality metal mouthpiece for the contemporary player.

Dukoff Metal Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
Bobby Dukoff metal mouthpieces are famous for their bright and cutting tone while still retaining plenty of depth and guts for an exciting sound. It is a favorite of jazz, rock and commercial players. The shank of the mouthpiece has been elongated to get a better grip on the cork when tuning. The insert for the teeth is slightly contoured for more comfortable playing, and the response is instantaneous and clean.

"Screamin' Mouthpiece"

Just recieved my Dukoff D6 today. Let me say at first I was a little freaked out thinking that the ligature was messed up because it kept sliding up. Well it isn't it just needs to be placed lower than the usual ligature and needs to be tightened like a beast. But after I solved that, let me say, WOW. This baby screams. It takes quite a bit of air but you can really hit altissimo no problem. First altissimo note I jumped to was a tripple G and it sang. You also don't lose the low note ability. You can go ffff on Bb and dance around altissimo with ease. What a great buy!

dukoff makes terrible mouthpieces. the only good ones are made from hand. these are molded. there are many imperfections in it and it is very inconsistent. they tend to easily get damaged. when i opened my mouhtpiece there was a huge dent on the tip that made a flapping noise when i changed notes. the sound is way too bright and i could not imagine a situation that would need such a peircing sound. the ligature slips alot and is harder than the mouthpiece. DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS U ARE SURE! PLAY IT ALOT BECAUSE IT IS A HARD ADAPTATION RETURN IT ASAP IF U HATE IT!

Quite a fascinating little piece of metal this mouthpiece is. Not to mention the OUTSTANDING scores I gave it on the low-high (how it responds while trying to "bop" each note from low Bb to C5), only missing one note (low Bb) (Witch was probably only because of the warm-up I had done was meant for higher register notes). The D5 is rather classical sounding, smooth with not much buzz. The D6 and D6 are pretty much the same, buzzy but smooth. The d7 and d8 are also rather similar, much more buzz and a little bit of smooth added to the background. The D8* is a D8 with a lower baffle. (What I use) and the D9 is just loud and proud.

I just got a new metal Dukoff D8 for my alto and I love it. I've had different ones over the years. I kept avoiding the D8 on alto because I didn't want to sound like everyone else. I finally gave in and now I have a D8 and I still don't sound like everybody else. Dukoffs have changed over the years. In the 80's they where fat in the middle. They had allot of edge and really cut through a loud band. In the 90's they got slimmer and thus had a lighter sound than before. The new one I've got is big, and longer in the middle. I've never tried the ones from the 70's. I hear they where great. Buy them now before they change them again. They're awesome.

"A True Classic"

played a Dukoff D6 for many years. I played it so much and so hard that it had deep indentations in the top. So deep, in fact, I nearly bit through the mouthpiece. It was time for a replacement. At first, I tried a Yanigasawa 7 (metal). This is now my favorite mouthpiece of all time for a clean, even, rich tone throughout the entire range of the saxophone. BUT, as much as I love the tone of the Yani, I found I had lost my "signature" sound. So, I got myself a Dukoff D7 and fell in love all over again. With the Dukoff, I can easily screech out split tones in the upper register and I can easily soar into the altissimo range (4 octaves). The Yani plays great altissimo, but not as high and wild as the Dukoff. The Dukoff has an edgy, gutsy quality I just haven't found in any other mouthpiece. I can also accomplish some very unusual and exciting "sound effects" on the sax that leave other players scratching their heads wondering "how the heck did she DO that"? The Dukoff mouthpiece is to the saxophone what electricity is to the guitar. With that being said, this mouthpiece is definitely NOT for everyone. It takes a very strong embrochure to play this piece properly. If you have to sit and wonder if you're ready for a Dukoff, you're probably not. This sound isn't for everyone. We're not talking about your local, smooth jazz yawn-fest here, folks, this is pants-on-fire, in-your-face energy. If you can control it and it's what you are looking for, then this is pure heaven. If not, then it will be hell on your audiences. Reed choice is very important for these mouthpieces. I recommend Rico Jazz Select #3 Soft--unfiled. Just a suggestion (you'll thank me later) Good luck! )-|-( Heather Haze (dot com)

"Dukoff metal alto sax"

I bought a dukoff metal mouthpiece and I was amazed how smoothly it sounded. The low and mid notes were great, the only thing I disliked was when playing high notes it tends to have a raspy sound and caused me to squeak often but I think it was because i wasnt used to it, being my first metal mouthpiece but now I'm used to it and the raspyness has gone away. What I also think help was playing with a thicker reed, reed sizes 2 & 2 1/2 will give you the raspy sound i believe. I would recommend this mouthpiec for players who have experience and have played with a metal mouthpieces before.

Many years ago when I was playing tenor someone lent me a Dukoff mouthpiece. The sound was gutsy, screaming, and fit in well with the electric band I was playing with. Now I'm on alto and thought I'd get a Dukoff to recapture the sound. (I'm an intermediate player.) I've found that the alto mouthpiece (D5 or D6), while sharing similarities in sound with the tenor piece, is much more difficult to play than rubber alto mouthpieces (Yamaha, Selmer, Meyer) or the Dukoff tenor piece. The Dukoff alto requires a lot of air, is more prone to squeaking or odd harmonics, and the ligature that came with it is poorly fitting, crushes the reed, and slips down the mouthpiece. I've just got a Rovner lig, which from what I've read should improve things somewhat, but I find it hard to recommend that anyone else of my admittedly moderate chops should pick one up.

"A real good mouthpiece, but damages easily"

I wish this were made of stainless steel, but it's some kind of soft alloy. I dropped it accidentally and it bent way out of shape and scratched/dented the rails. I just ordered a new one and will take better care :) I am a pro player and can handle the D8 easily, but don't recommend it to intermediate players. The altissimo register is the best I've ever played using the D8. The sound is big and it cuts through the band well. My sax-playing friends are impressed with my sound using the Dukoff.

I am an adult player with a little over 3 years experience. Had a D5 and a D7 shipped for tryout. I liked both. the D5 was easy to get a good sound with little effort, i wound up keeping the D7 for flexibility. I record a lot of my playing and found that my sound focus has improved with the dukoff-now just have to work at controlling it quietly and dynamically-of course it's easy to play it loud-hope this helps

I was so excited to get this piece. Really liked David Sanborn's sound, read up on it, read some reviews, so I selected this mouthpiece. It came, alright in the box (the box always seemed just a little too small), looked very clean, so I decided to play it. At first it was just me thinking I had to adapt to this thing, maybe the ligature wasn't right, maybe my reed choice wasn't quite right. Well, I played (and owned) this thing long enough to know exactly how bad it is constructed. The baffle is good (if you want a high step baffle), and the bite plate side of the mouthpiece is good, that's about where it ends. The table has small little micro scratches all over. The rails, man these things have minor imperfections all over them. Slight little indentations, uneven widths, etc., etc., etc. The tip rail is a little uneven. The top of the baffle is not even, slightly diagonal. The chamber (shudders), man is the chamber made awfully. The baffle tapers down to the chamber, and this is where you can realize that the metal is poured and not cut, imperfections like crazy. Mine came with a metal bubble where the pouring ended, asymmetry, and little dents in the metal. These things are made by hand, and no care is given to evenness or symmetry at all. Then the ligature, what a horrible thing. It holds the reed slightly diagonal, you need to tighten ridiculously or else it slips up, and it scratches up the mouthpiece. Also, due to the material of these mouthpiece (extremely soft) they get hurt very easily, oh, and if you play on this baby for a few years, because of oxidization it will turn black; jet black. Before it turns black it looks kind of gray kind of silver. The sound is awful, the intonation is horrible. D1 and D2 played relatively in tune, D3 was actually a D#3 even though a D3 was fingered. I will say altissimo was good, I could get 6 octaves out of this. Multiphonics were very easy, split tones were easy, circular breathing, haha don't even try it these pieces take some breath. If I had one thing to tell Mr. Bobby Dukoff it would be that his pieces are completely inconsistent. Save yourself the dough, test play other pieces and decide on one of those, just move past the Dukoffs completely.
