This is a beautiful “Black Pearl” model 500 alto sax by P. Mauriat, serial number 0903114. Talk about a real looker. If you are looking for something with that special look and at a great price it is going to be hard to pass up on this one. In addition to looking very cool this is a very sweet player. It has a crisp and tightly balanced core sound which is consistent from top to bottom. The nickel plating gives the alto excellent projection and also gives it a beautiful singing character.
The alto was very well cared for by the previous owner and is in pristine condition. Aside from a few light scratches the horn is perfect. It has had absolutely no history of repair. This alto is currently in the Saxquest shop being professionally set-up and ships out in perfect playing condition with the original contoured case.
