That's right - we've got P Mauriat saxes back in stock! We used to sell plenty of these handmade beauties going back about 8 years or so, then distribution rights were changed and you could only buy them from one UK shop.

Great to have them back, we always loved the way they played along with many, many world class, international pro players! Often likened to having the response of the legendary Selmer MKVI, these horns really do give the right amount of resistance to push against like vintage Selmers and Conns etc.

Here's Bob reviewing a couple of the altos


Come and see what all the fuss is about - they're better than ever!!
