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.
The Grand Dreams 285 is a great option for people that are looking for a professional model horn without breaking the bank. The Grand Dream comes in a Cognac lacquer with black pearl inlays. This horn is very free blowing, while maintaining consistent intonation. I personally like horns that have little to no resistance and this horn delivers in that respect. I would highly recommend trying out this horn if you ever get the chance.
The System 76 2nd Edition Dark Lacquer is a phenomenal horn. This horn has a deep rich sound to it that is comparable to that of an old Conn or Selmer. I found that the key work on this horn feels a little bit uncomfortable at first, but it is nothing that makes the horn harder to play. Something else I notices is how consistent it is from top to bottom making is just as easy to play in the altissimo ranges as the lower range on this horn. Last but not least, this horn has the Adam Larson seal of approval!
