HELP, I Want One!

This is the P. Mauriat PMA-500BX “Black Pearl” alto, serial number pm0308517. These horns are a nickel silver body plated with black nickel. This horn has a great feel that comes from the selmer design concept with straight tone holes. In our recent stock of P. Mauriats, this is the only PMA-500BX! This horn can get the edge for the R&B, soul or lead alto punch. It has a focused sound that edges on brightness without losing control. 
This particular sax comes out of show stock. It has never been owned but has seen just a little bit of play time at some music demo shows. The body tube, bow and neck are all in pristine physical condition. This saxophone has less then a few hours of play time. It is currently awaiting a professional set-up in out shop. Aside from a few hard to see cosmetic blemishes the alto is in perfect condition. 
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.
This sax ships out in perfect playing condition and includes our 1 year service warranty and the P. Mauriat manufactures warranty.
