Product ID: PMauriatBlackPearl
The P. Mauriat saxophones have quickly gained in popularity because of their excellent quality at fantastic prices. This model is the "Black Pearl", featuring a nickel silver body which is then black nickel plated. It is a unique look, and plays great.
We have spent a lot of time playing these instruments, and have come to the conclusion that you just can't get a better sax for the money. We played them side by side with many saxes in the shop, including vintage Mark VI's, and came away impressed with their projection, richness of sound, and overall character of tone. Intonation is excellent, and they play with a very warm full sound. The tenor especially has a big powerful voice and blows easily in all registers, from low Bb up through the altissimo.
