This is used first series P. Mauriat Custom Class alto sax in dark matte lacquer finish, serial number 242583. These were the first pro model P Mauriats they made; think of it as a 67RDK without rolled tone holes. In comparison to the modern 67RDK by P. Mauriat these first series models are slightly brighter and more focused. The projection on this alto is quite exceptional.
Physically, this alto shows moderate lacquer wear, but has obviously never been abused. The only previous repair I can spot is the neck receiver on the body has been resoldered at some point. There are no dents and no other prior repairs. The original neck too is in excellent shape. Pads are all soft with lots of life left in them, and the sax will get a fresh cleaning and adjustment from our repair shop before shipping.
If you are looking to get into a nice player at a lower price, this P. Mauirat can be for a great deal. It ships with its original contoured (shaped) case.
