Dukoff ‘D8 – Nickel Plated Brass’ Tenor, Ser# – 0.112″ (Archived)

Dukoff D8, Nickel-Plated Brass, Tenor:

From Chadd's Collection:

  • Make: Dukoff
  • Model: Nickel-plated brass(Transitional)
  • Number: D8
  • Era: 1960s?
  • Status: SOLD
  • Ligature: N/A
  • Facing: near Original Tip
  • Tip-Size: 0.112"

These are often called the "Transitional" model as they were after the brass era (BD and Stubby) and before the Silverite ("Miami, FL").

The original tip @ 0.112" was touched by another famous mouthpiece refacer. It plays as big and awesome as Sarge's did! (I put them side by side).

Sarge's notes on these ones: "Nickel silver plated brass (prototype to SPC or Dave Guardala), original tip D8, unfooled with--$1200."...as he had one in his collection.

Repairs: The rails has some brass showing so I silver plated the rails to seal them.
