This is a lightly used P Mauriat System 76 2nd Edition tenor sax in the raw unlacquered option, serial number PM0220815. This tenor shows light playing wear but is in flawless physical condition, and is priced at a heavy discount from new.
This tenor has only been played a handful of times, but because it is unlacquered, its shows some water spots on the bell and has that “broken in” kind of look. It was manufactured only about a year ago, but the raw brass has aged well and it has the look of an old vintage horn. Physically it is perfect, with no dents or dings, no repairs. The neck is perfect as well. All of the pads look new and the sax does come with our full pro regulation and backed by our full year mechanical warranty.
The System 76 is the brighter of P Mauriat's two major lines, and the UL in particular has the biggest sound I've found. Response is lightning fast from low Bb up into the palm keys and beyond, and while it is fat and powerful, it doesn't lose its core warmth or color of tone. This one does not have high F#, which does seem to add resonance throughout the horn. This tenor does ship in its original P Mauriat Warrior series case as pictured.
