HELP, I Want One!

This is a very lightly used P Mauriat Arist model 600XJ tenor sax, serial number PM0905819. This is the newest pro model offered by P Mauriat. It is just 2 years old and is excellent shape, available for a fantastic price.

 

The 600XJ is an unlacquered horn, designed around the popular 66 body tube, but with straight tone holes for a lighter horn. It does a great job of providing a vintage sound from a modern horn, and is a wonderful fit for players who like that old vintage sound with better keywork/action. Being an unlacquered horn, this model is more prone to show water/spit marks after just a few plays, and there is some of that going on, most notably on the bell, as seen in the photos. This is purely cosmetic, and the horn shows no physical wear (dents, dings, resolders) at all. This horn looks fantastic, with extensive hand engraving wrapping all around the bell and down onto the bottom bow.

 

This tenor plays with a big, full sound. It has a big bottom end, and its sound stay fat as you climb up into the altissimo. Its tonal color is really sweet and lush, but the sax has plenty of pop too, and you can push it hard. A solid tenor for the player demanding a lot from their horn. Ships in its original case, and will get our fresh pro set up before shipping.
