Damn, Jim, a Bobby Dukoff! Bet that thing is worth a camera or a couple of 
lenses. Knew several that played them, and they all loved them.

During the "Big Band" heyday of the 1940s, musicians would do anything they 
could to get an "edge" on the competition.  One of the favorites of the sax 
men was the metal mouthpiece made by the Bob Dukoff Co.  Used by many tenor 
sidemen, it was also made for the alto.  Here is a well-worn alto 
mouthpiece I have owned since the 1940s.

E-510 and Zuiko Digital 35/3.5

Comments and critiques welcomed.
