About P. Mauriat:
Musical instruments are complicated things, especially brass and woodwinds. With that in mind, it's the little details that separate a "great" instrument from one that's simply "good". If you're looking for some examples to prove that, all you've got to do is compare P. Mauriat saxophones to any of their direct competitors. Named for the late Maestro of the Grand Orchestre de Paul Mauriat, the instruments in this section are ongoing tributes to Mauriat's lifelong love of jazz and orchestral music. With options for musicians at every skill and experience level, there's a sax or trumpet here for you no matter where you stand on your musical journey.
There are a few traits that make P. Mauriat instruments outstanding. One of those is their use of high-quality French brass exclusively, to make sure their materials are as consistent as possible. Another is the "rolled tone hole" construction method. Competitors have tried to mimic this by soldering rings onto their tone holes, but those imitations can't match the durability and reliable sealing of the real thing. Even so, the best characteristic of P. Mauriat horns might be their combination of modern playability with vintage sound quality.
P. Mauriat is best known for baritone and tenor saxophones, so those would be perfect places to start looking through the section. The PMST-86UL Professional Tenor Saxophone is a real beauty with P. Mauriat's classic antique finish, and if you'd like a more modern look, there's also the PMST-500BXSK 'Black Pearl' Tenor Sax. If you're interested in a trumpet, you could even opt for the PMT-700SP Series Bb Trumpet Gift Kit. It comes with all the essentials bundled in, so it's perfect for beginners or for expanding your list of accessories.
With a wide range of sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones to choose from, P. Mauriat definitely goes all-out with options... and that's not even mentioning their line of trumpets. Jason Marshall might have said it best while describing the performance of his P. Mauriat low Bb baritone sax: "This company represents the next evolution in saxophones".
