Hey there, you seem to have a Dukoff Crystal Mouthpiece. I still have mine for Alto, and it was in fact my first Dukoff piece I had ever bought. They were4 around for only a few years as far as I remember, but someone else on this forum may be able to speak more accurately to that.
Have you played it yet? What did you think of it?
Also, the ligature that came with my alto piece fits almost all of my metal tenor pieces, and is hands down my favorite lig. If you still have it, hold onto that lig!
I have the original ligature. This piece is plastic though, not real crystal. I know that Dukoff made "crystallite" mouthpieces and Vibra-Com mpcs, but I'm not sure which this is.
I actually bought it at lunch time today from a small shop here locally. I played a similar piece on alto years ago, and I recall it being called a Vibra-Com. Anyway, I will sell it; I just have no idea what it's worth.
They're plastic, not Crystal, I use one refaced by EZ on tenor, and its a great piece! I dont know why they made these this way instead of out of the silverite material they usually use, but im glad they did!
The same if the facing and chamber are finished similarly. But the material feels way different in your mouth. Very light. This could cause you to play it a little differently. There was even a study done using Dukoffs:
I put the Dukoff on ebay. I really have no idea of the value, but I did see a guy unsuccessfully list a D6 alto piece of the same material with a "Buy It Now" of $315. That didn't happen but I'm guessing $150-200 is a reasonable expectation for my tenor piece. We'll see.
