Don Alan Full Size Chop Cup | Copper | Satin Finish

Don Alan Chop Cup

The Don Alan Full Size Chop Cup and RNT Red Balls.
The hallmark of our Jumbo Chop Cup selection: The Don Alan Full Size Chop Cup has a wide 3 3/8 inch mouth that swallows almost anything you can throw at it. Big enough for a baseball, the cup comfortably holds a lemon, an apple, an orange or any like-sized load of your choice. Tennis ball? No problem. In fact, if you produce a tennis ball out of this cup, you owe it to yourself to produce something even bigger! As chop cups go, the Don Alan Full Size Chop Cup gives you the largest load capacity of any commercially available cup.

The Don Alan Full Size cup design has no mouth bead, and no shoulder beads. It incorporates two dress lines around the deep-dish saddle and has a drastic radius in the rounded sidewall which amplifies the size of the final load ball, creating the illusion that the ball is actually bigger than the cup, when a maximum size load is produced and is rested on the cup's saddle. Of course, such a display is totally unnecessary after your audience has experienced the jumbo size loads that can fit into this cup.

The cup is so large that you shouldn't use any Chopped Balls that are smaller than 1 inch in diameter with it. Smaller balls just look disproportionate to the jumbo size of the cup. We recommend, and include 1 1/8 inch balls, but 1 3/8 inch balls will work just as well, if not better.


Each cup is hand spun from .050" copper with a brushed satin finish exterior and a brushed satin interior.

Beautiful, holds a regulation baseball, which looks huge atop the cup. Perfect magnet! Lovely travel bag! ( do I sound enthusiastic????)
Just used for the first time in a standup show. Very visual, very visible. A senior audience had no trouble seeing and understanding what was going on.
Great cup!
None. Ok, wish I could have chosen
1 3/8” yellow balls. Would be a great option.
Can’t say enough good things about this cup. It replaces an early seventies Ickle Pickle cup that had finally given up the ghost. Superb replacement and an improvement. Easier to use, load is bigger, and looks like it.
These cups are an absolute beast! The cup is as plain as you could ask for without a lot of flashy beading or anything else. Because of this it almost looks like part of a cocktail shaker, and it is certainly big enough to be part of one!

The weight of the cup is nice and hefty and if you prefer lighter cups, you may want to go with the aluminium version, but the weight can be used to an advantage at times.

The size of this cup allows for some nice big final loads and the ad copy was right - if you produce a baseball from this thing you really do owe it to yourself (and your spectators) to produce something even bigger. This cup can handle it!

The shape of the cup makes the final loads look even bigger, which is a plus. The dimple also allows for a larger load to sit securely on top of the cup, as well as keeping the regular balls from rolling away.

The adjustable chopped ball works perfectly with this line of cups too - such an ingenious idea!

It goes without saying that everything that Donnie puts out is of the highest quality and materials available and this cup is no exception. It will take a beating and still give you a lifetime of great service!

*This all applies to the BRASS Don Alan Full Size Chop Cups, which is what this review is based on and is the kind that I originally owned (and still have/use). I purchased a Satin Finish copper cup because I love the look of tarnished copper over time, as well as the weight and the feel.
