Product ID: PMSys76ULAlto
The P. Mauriat saxophones have quickly gained in popularity because of their excellent quality at fantastic prices. This is the System 76UL alto un-lacquered finish. The un-lacquered body of the horn allows for a free breathing organic sound character that is fairly warm in color. In comparison to the matte lacquer horns of the same model the UL is a little bit faster in response to air flow and resonates very freely.
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 System 76 has a slightly brighter sound, and a bit more focus in its core sound in comparison to the PMXA-67R.
Every P. Mauriat sax we sell does come with our full set up, which includes a complete regulation and adjustment. We thoroughly play-test every instrument after the set up, to insure they are playing at the height of their capabilities. The sax does come with our full one year warranty.
We are very excited to have these great horns available. Please visit P. Mauriat's website at www.pmauriatmusic.com.
