Dukoff Metal Alto Saxophone MouthpieceBobby 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.

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)

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.
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.
It is to date the best mouthpieve I have ever played, I also have a new Brilhart level air that I like very very much, but nothing is like my old Dukoff. The intonation is as good as it gets, altissimo is way good, low and mid range just dont end .I can go from blues to classical and not change a thing, and it blends so so so sweetly. I reccomend the D chamber to anyone, I have played the X chamber, but nothing is like my ol' D8.
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!
