P. Mauriat PMXA-67R Equinox Alto Sax – (Ref 3093)****SOLD****

P. Mauriat PMXA-67R Equinox Alto Sax – (Ref 3093)****SOLD****

Selling on behalf of current owner who purchased this sax new only in August 2022 and it has only been used a couple of times.

In ‘As New’ condition: pads, springs and corks all look good.

Includes: Case with shoulder strap and backstraps, original mouthpiece, ligature and cap plus cleaning cloth, pull through, cork grease, neck strap.

The PMXA-67R is the leading alto sax from P Mauriat, delivering on sound and playability in equal measures, and it therefore became a very natural choice of instrument for Mauriat to use as a basis for this new exclusive model, the Equinox.

The 67R model elevated P.Mauriat to sit alongside the World’s best. Described in reviews as the closest to the legendary Selmer Mk6 – praise indeed!

The finish on the Equinox sets it apart from the other 67R models; it has a vintage yet modern appearance at the same time.

Tone-wise the sound is rich and powerful, with an abundance of depth in every note. The 67R range is known for delivering a huge dynamic range with a massive amount of colour and tonal variety. The addition of a large bell just helps to amplify these qualities even further.

It is rare to find rolled tone holes on a modern sax and these give a noticeably quieter key action and extended pad life. P Mauriat are proud to manufacture saxophones using structurally integrated, unitary rolled tone holes, as opposed to using the less popular method of soft soldering a separate ring on to the body.

Description

About P. Mauriat

Music is the universal language of the people. It is the medium by which we can individually or collectively share our ideas and express life s vast range of emotions. Despite the tool chosen for this endeavor, it must act as an extension of the body, a soundboard for the soul. That is why P. Mauriat takes pride in providing the most ergonomic and efficient instruments for the musicians of the world. Instead a barrier cast between the player and music-making, our instruments are the keys that unlock doors to creative minds. The craftsmanship that goes into each instrument by P. Mauriat is second to none.

Our French brass and other metals are exceptionally resonant due to the extensive hand-hammering process it must endure in our factory. A single saxophone body will be hammered as many as 400 times before proceeding to the next technician for final shaping. Each tone hole is drawn from the saxophone one by one to ensure precision and consistency required for excellent response and intonation.

Our lacquer process is applied by three separate stages in order to achieve a timeless, vintage look that will last for ages. The final hand engraving process is manually accomplished with nothing more than a simple handheld took and years of experience.

Once complete, each instrument is carefully inspected and tested by one of our full-time quality control artists to ensure you receive the absolute finest instrument available. P. Mauriat instruments represent the embodiment of aesthetic beauty and technical precision. All of our horns are handmade in order to bring out the innate characteristics and sound of each exclusive model. The natural quality of our horns is what we believe differentiates us from all others, and we believe that you will hear it too. With a P. Mauriat you can Go for the sound .
