P. Mauriat Tenor Sax Comparison

Mauriat Saxophones have arrived at Paige’s Music! Lets take a second to talk about some of the Tenors that we currently have in stock.

The PMXT 66-RX in the unlacquered finish has an amazing look to it. The extra engraving on it really brings the look of the saxophone together. Another cool thing about this saxophone is that the key inlays are metal, which helps with the resonance of the horn. The PMXT 66-RX features rolled tone holes, which are pulled directly from the body, as opposed to being soldered onto the body after the fact.

Jazz Mouthpiece Recommendations for Saxophone

When looking for a new mouthpiece I think it is a great idea to try out a few mouthpieces before you decide on making the purchase. I have some recommendations for jazz mouthpieces that will help the development of a quality jazz sound. I believe that starting out on a hard rubber jazz mouthpiece will help develop a strong sound and feel for the jazz mouthpieces.

If you are just getting started in jazz band I would recommend trying out some Meyer and Otto Link mouthpieces preferably the hard rubber. These mouthpieces are not only great for beginners, but more advanced players as well. If you are a little bit more advanced with jazz music. I would highly recommend trying out the Vandoren V16 M/S+, Daddario Jazz Select (pictured), or Jody Jazz Hr*. These mouthpieces are high quality and reasonably priced!
