This is a ultra rich player, P. Mauriat 67RG alto saxophone in gold plate, serial number PM0205017. The 67R model is manufactured with rolled tone holes and fluid ergonomic key work to high F#. This one in particular is a new instrument Saxquest selected for our store stock inventory. It was played at a few trade shows but has never been owned or extensively played. The body has absolutely no history of past repair. If you look closely you can see some very faint light scratching/cosmetic blemishes. Otherwise the instrument is in exquisite physical condition.
In terms of sound charter this alto has an ultra rich sound. The warm sound is heavily enhanced by the gold plate finish on the instrument. We have spent a lot of time playing these instruments and have come to the conclusion that you just can't get a better sax for the money. We played them side by side with many saxes in the shop, including vintage Mark VI's, and came away impressed with their projection, richness of sound, and overall character of tone. Intonation is excellent, and they play with a very warm full sound.
Every P. Mauriat sax we sell does come with our full set up, which includes a complete regulation and adjustment. We thoroughly play-test every instrument after the set up, to insure they are playing at the height of their capabilities. The sax does come with our one year warranty.
