P. Mauriat PMXT-66RGL Tenor Saxophone
There are many excellent horns available on the market today, but P. Mauriat's 66R/67R Series with genuine rolled tone holes are still regarded as unique instruments by many horn enthusiasts over 10 years after their first release. The special feature of these horns is their structurally integrated, unitary rolled tone holes, which means they are not created by soft soldering a separate metal ring onto the body. P. Mauriate's proprietary manufacturing method allows them to use the material from the body itself to roll the tone hole edges out, creating a one-piece unitary body that has not received unnecessary heat treatment, and therefore no potential drawbacks associated with solder-joined components. The resulting tone is one that is free and resonant, uninterrupted by extra work done on other so-called rolled tone hole saxophones.
Unitary Rolled Tone Holes
The unitary rolled tone hole is a patented design that uses a method that draws and rolls the tone hole from the body of the saxophone. This creates a warm and centered tone quality that is different from a straight or soldered tone hole.
Super VI Neck
The Super VI Neck is the result of years of research and design. The Super VI offers great response, clean articulation, and excellent intonation. It is also free blowing and flexible, providing the player access to a more extreme dynamic range and a wider palette of tonal expression.
Metal Resonator Pads
The metal resonators offer an outstanding response and deliver a wider dynamic range. The entire range of the instrument has a clearer pronunciation, providing effortless playability all around.
