I once had a Dukoff alto mpc, but I didn't like the fact that they are so delicate, and prone to minor dents on the tip and rails.

I might try another Dukoff style mpc, and was wondering what a good alternative might be that has better construction.

cheers Rob

Vandoren Jumbo Javas- much better made and a great "dukoff-ish" vibe

Made by Andy Taylor in Norwich - one of the world's greatest trumpet/flugelhorn makers. This is the Phat Baby.

C.E. Winds has a Dukoff alto piece in the pipeline,

called the El Duque...usually when they first release these, you can purchase them at half price...

To lengthen the 3rd valve when playing low C# and D, which play naturally sharp.
