P Mauriat's flagship model the 66R now available in a stunning, unlacquered finish - this sax is glorious to play! The plain, dark, raw brass yields a very natural, earthy sound with an unparalled response!
P Mauriat burst onto the professional sax scene some years ago being the first "super" Taiwanese makers offering handmade instruments with ultra modern,slick keywork and lush, hand hammered, vintage sounding bodywork. A winning combination that converted many top -players from their trusted, prized, vintage horns.
The R refers to rolled tone holes (very rare to see this process on modern saxes - very difficult to make) which are most commonly found on American instruments from the 30s and 40s. Rolled tone holes offer a quieter action (less pad noise), better, seating pads (less air leaks = easier to play) and also less wear to the pads. The bore and neck on these models is excellent giving a huge, rich, colourful tone most similar to the best vintage saxes - just the right amount of resistance to push against, offering a wide spectrum of dynamics and tonal possibilities.
Construction is absolutely excellent, from soldering to padding to springing. Tone wise they are always favourably compared to the legendary Selmer MkVI, a great choice for all styles - we love these horns!
Comes with hard shell shaped case, mouthpiece, reeds, care kit, 2 year warranty and our FREE 2 year service worth £80.00!
All of our instruments are individually set up, tested and adjusted to perfection, prior to sale by our on site technicians.
