Duct tape was the first thing I used to try to keep my cerveny from breaking up at loud dynamics. It works, but you may have to fiddle around with the amounts to find out how much is right for your horn. Too much will kill the warmth of the tone. I don't use it anymore, I found between having the bottom bow carefully and fully soldered and joined at the ferrules, and adding monsterweights, gave me a much more natural and musical effect.
