Here's a very lightly used professional model P Mauriat System 76 2nd Edition soprano sax, serial number PM0563518. This soprano was previously owned by a pro tenor for a year or two, but honestly it looks like he never played it. I was hard pressed to find even a scratch on the horn, but it is technically “used” and available for a great discount.
The horn looks great, with a dark matte finish and virtually no wear to speak of. There are no dents or dings, no resolders, and no previous repairs. Even the pads show no wear. It looks like the horn sat in a closet for the last couple years. It will get a fresh set up from our repair shop before shipping, where we'll make sure all pads are sealing properly, and replace all the factory key adjustment corks and felts with better material.
This soprano features a one piece design, with fixed attached straight neck. Without a detachable neck, the horn definitely feels more resonant under your fingers, with the one piece body feeling more “alive” and open. It retains its warmth and color but has maybe a bit more spread. Very flexible and expressive soprano. Ships in its original case, which is also in pristine condition.
