Re: P. Mauriat Tenor PMXT-66R
We've seen several new P. Mauriat 66R tenors recently come in and out. They are tremendous playing horns. The 66R is by far my favorite P. Mauriat model. It has a big bottom end with a great ring. Its definitely the best current production horn for the money out there right now. You get the richness of sound and flexibility in core response of a great vintage horn but with modern keywork and superb intonation.
Not to toot our own horn but its definitely worth doing your research and buying it from a shop that knows a thing or two about saxophone set up and takes the time to actually do it. As with any new horn these days, they do need to be set up from the factory. We go through and adjust the key fitting, key heights, replace some squishy cork in a few critical places, check for level tone holes, check the neck tip diameter, etc.....
Please let me know if you have further questions about P. Mauriat. We've just been selected as one of only five P. Mauriat Select dealers across the country and I'm always happy to discuss these horns and we'll always have them in stock!
