This is a great P. Mauriat 67R UL Un-lacquered alto saxophone, serial number pm0516908. The 67R is one of the rolled tone hole models by P. Mauriat. This one is in an un-lacquered finish. It shows some typical cosmetic play history for a raw brass horn but is physically in very good condition. This alto has never received major repair and has been professionally serviced and maintained by the previous owner. The original Super VI neck is also in outstanding condition.
If you are looking for the classic American vintage sound on a more modern instrument this 67 will definitely do the trick. It plays with a fat and powerful free blowing sound. The sonic character is warm and very rich. Its rich sonic balance is nice and precise from top to bottom allowing for outstanding control.
This saxophone is currently in the Saxqeust shop being checked out and set-up. It ships out in perfect playing condition with the original pro tec style contoured case. If you are looking for a great pro horn on a budget you will not want to miss this 67RUL.
