This is a very nice P. Mauriat System 76 3rd Edition Greg Osby Signature alto sax 05/100. P. Maurtiat made these in a very small number. In fact just 100 were manufactured. This one, number 05 is in great condition. It was previously owned for a short amount of time by a player and collector. It shows just a small amount of cosmetic character but is in perfect physical condition.
The Osby model features a dark cognac colored lacquer body tube, with a silver plated bell and sterling silver neck. It shows off beautiful hand engraving all around the bell, up the body tube and even on some of the lower body key cups. The pads are all still in great condition. We are also currently in the process of putting a fresh set-up on the sax. It ships out in perfect playing condition.
P Mauriat went a long way in making it feel comfortable and play incredibly. Every facet of this alto has been studied with the real player in mind. Sonically, it is a powerful horn as you would expect, but also has a deepness of voice that allows you to be extremely emotive and versatile in your playing.
