Our Description

The System 76 tenor has an larger bore and bell size, producing a warm full-bodied sound that has good intonation throughout the octaves. The keywork has been improved for improved playing comfort. It has a robust, yet smooth, feel when playing.

The Vintage Dark Lacquer produces a warm sound, with more flexibility in the sound. It has the fine engraving and shell key touches that Mauriat are known for.

This particular instrument has a Jim Scimonette modified crook. As this modification has more give in it than a traditional cork crook, meaning that there is the flexibility to fit multiple style mouthpieces onto the instrument.

P Mauriat saxophones have been causing a stir on the internet (see the Sax On The Web forum for an idea of what people are saying) and we had to see what all the fuss was about! These saxophones play freely from top to bottom, and the 76-DK model has a big rich sound in the vintage American tradition. This plays stunningly well, and is truly in a different class to other saxes at this price level. Combine with a Vandoren Java, Selmer S80 C* or for more punch, Yanagisawa metal mouthpiece, and any of the above with a BG ligature for a great sounding horn.
