P Mauriat PMX 66R Tenor Sax

Print

With it’s antiqued lacquer finish, abalone pearls imported direct from Indonesia and a superb overall build quality, it looks (and feels) like a million dollars before you even get to play a note. Look more closely and you’ll see that the instrument has hand made rolled tone holes that come straight out of the body – there’s no soldering. The bell has also been enlarged from the standard size, and this gives some indication of what you might expect from the instrument. And boy, does this 66 live up to all those expectations! Handling is not dissimilar to a Reference 54, with very positive keywork and a relatively close action.
