This is an awesome P. Mauriat System 76 Un-Lacquered alto saxophone, serial number PM0920913. The alto was used at a few trade shows in the past and while it was played a few times is still in new condition. But because it has been at the booth at a few shows we are able to now offer it at a drastically reduced price. It is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up and ships in perfect playing condition with its contoured hard case, manufactures warranty and Saxquest 1 year service warranty.
The System 76 is a instrument show casing an un-lacquered finish. This one in particular is in pristine condition. As it is an un-lacquered saxophone it has already stared to show some unique cosmetic character across the raw brass body. What makes this instrument unique is it does not have a high F# key. This is typically a special order item. This alto is a super sweet player. It takes the air in quick and has a crisp organic response which is partially due to the raw brass finish of the horn. With out the high F# the horn resonates a little bit freer and is just a hair lighter. If you are looking for a vintage feel and sound on a modern horn at a great price the System 76 is a great way to go.
