P Mauriat PMXT-66R DK Tenor Saxophone - Vintage Finish

£3,299.00
SKU PMXT-66R DK

A great sax that captures the great vintage qualities of yesteryear.

A true modern classic - the sax that inspired a generation of vintage style horns. A huge, dark tone makes these a superb horn for jazz, blues and electric styles. It features drawn & rolled tone holes allowing better resonance and an enlarged bell to compliment an already warm, fat sound.

Description

The Mauriat 66R made an enormous impression when it exploded on to the sax scene a few years ago - from some of the greatest players down, saxophonists immediately fell for its dramatic but versatile character. It elevated P.Mauriat to sit alongside the World's best sax makers. Described in reviews as the closest to the legendary Selmer Mk6 - praise indeed!

This Custom Class "Vintage Series" tenor features a vintage dark lacquer finish (DK), rolled tone holes, beautiful abalone shell key touches and high F# key. The vintage look is in keeping with the vintage tone this model is famous for. The larger bell further encourages a full bodied and warm tone. 

It is rare to find rolled tone holes on a modern sax and these give a noticeably quieter key action and extended pad life.

Reviews 

Warm and dark but also a rich and easily sculptable tone- there’s a vast amount to discover here. From husky Ben Webster-isms through to blasting out with an electric band here’s a sax which really can deliver the goods with aplomb. Jules (Sax.co.uk)

When I got my P Mauriat, for the first time in my life I felt inspired to play on a horn other than my old Selmer. The sound of PMXT-66R is very warm and I get more volume and flexibility. Jakob Dinesen 

I recommend the P Mauriat to players who are looking for a vintage sound and feel, but modern intonation and keywork. The sound is really outstanding. PMXT 66R has its own personality. Adam Klemm

It has such a great combination of resonance, clarity, and a wonderful even sound from top to bottom. It is a one-of-a-kind horn that elevates my playing to another level. To say that I love it is an understatement. Darren Rahn
