This is a like-new condition P Mauriat PMXA-67R alto in cognac lacquer, serial number PM1206219. This alto came to us from the factory with a lacquer imperfection on the octave key (see photo # 9). Visually, it just looks like a bit of light lacquer wear in that one spot, and otherwise, the horn is in new condition. With that blemish, we are selling the horn for a substantial savings from the current new price.
This model features rolled tone holes and a gorgeous dark color lacquer, that is beautiful to see in person. Pads are obviously all in new condition, with factory metal resonators, and the sax will get our pro set up before shipping. It comes in its original case.
This alto plays with a definite darker quality, with a pure tone and strong foundational core. Very sweet tone in the middle and lower register, making for a good jazz horn. At bigger volumes, the sound really leaps out of the bell. It's a solid all-around horn for players looking for a pro alto on a budget.
