Matte Finish System 76DK Tenor

Outstanding condition P Mauriat System 76 2nd Edition tenor sax in the DK matte finish, serial number PM0123017. This is a fantastic tenor for pro players on a budget. It plays with a full, powerful sound with a definite modern, contemporary tone. Slated for a fresh set up from our shop before shipping, it will come to you in perfect adjustment.

 

As you can see in the photos, this tenor is great shape. The original lacquer is a solid 95% intact, with only minimal wear, mostly on the touch points, from honest use. There are no dents or dings, no resolders anywhere. The original “Super VI” neck was previously ever-so-slightly pulled down, but no other past work. A previous own did add sugru on the left hand thumbrest and octave key for comfort, but we'll remove that during the set up and bring the sax back to factory condition. A heavy mass tightening screw has been added, a nice bonus.

 

This sax is going to get a deep clean and regulation from our store, with all work included in the price to get it perfect. We're going to replace a handful of pads in the upper stack that are starting to show their age, as well as all of the key adjustment corks and felts, and tighten up the action. It'll feel like a new horn again when you receive it.

 

These tenors hold their own with anything out there. It plays with a warm, but not overly dark sound, with a strong focus. It really pops in the altissimo and has a strong edge that cuts well in a loud room. If you are looking for a solid pro level tenor without breaking the bank, you can't go wrong here. Ships with its original “Walt Johnson style” case.
