HELP, I Want One!

This is a pristine condition P Mauriat Le Bravo 200 series tenor saxophone, serial number PM1013019. This tenor has been in the shop for a year or so getting used as a demo and on the sales floor. It has a stray cosmetic scratch or two if you look very closely, but is in near-flawless condition, and available for a great price.


The Le Bravo series is P Mauriat's “intermediate” line, but don't let that be a deterrent if you're looking for a solid horn. This is a heavy, durable horn, and shares all of the characteristics of the more expensive pro level P Mauriats. It features a beautiful matte finish body with a silver plated neck. The only thing this tenor doesn't have that some of their pro models do is the extensive hand engraving on the bell. It feels solid under your fingers and is a great player.


Physically, this tenor is just about perfect. You've got to look hard to find a scratch, and there is no wear to the lacquer finish. The sax is going to get a complete, fresh adjustment from our repair shop before shipping, where we'll make sure all is sealing properly.


Sonically, this tenor plays with a clear, precise attack, but I find it to be less focused than some of the matte finish horns, and it has a little more spread. It is definitely a big, open player, with a lightning quick response and a lot of color that spreads out from the horn. I see it being a great straight ahead jazz horn, but you can take it in different directions with the right mouthpiece.
