Sax.co.uk Recommends

A great sax that captures the great vintage qualities of yesteryear.

A true modern classic - the sax that inspired a generation of vintage style horns. A huge, dark tone makes these a superb horn for jazz, blues and electric styles. It features drawn & rolled tone holes allowing better resonance and an enlarged bell to compliment an already warm, fat sound.


Detailed Description

The Mauriat 66R made an enormous impression when it exploded on to the sax scene a few years ago - from some of the greatest players down, saxophonists immediately fell for its dramatic but versatile character. It elevated P.Mauriat to sit alongside the World's best sax makers. Described in reviews as the closest to the legendary Selmer Mk6 - praise indeed!


This Custom Class "Vintage Series" tenor features a vintage dark lacquer finish (DK), rolled tone holes, beautiful abalone shell key touches and high F# key. The vintage look is in keeping with the vintage tone this model is famous for. The larger bell further encourages a full bodied and warm tone.


It is rare to find rolled tone holes on a modern sax and these give a noticeably quieter key action and extended pad life.


Material: Brass

Finish: Dark vintage lacquer

Key Touches: Genuine abalone shell

Neck: Super Jazz VI

Engraving: Hand engraved bell and bow

Case: Black shaped hard case

Mouthpiece: Mauriat plastic mouthpiece

Made in: Taiwan

Warm and dark but also a rich and easily sculptable tone- there’s a vast amount to discover here. From husky Ben Webster-isms through to blasting out with an electric band here’s a sax which really can deliver the goods with aplomb. Jules (Sax.co.uk)


When I got my P Mauriat, for the first time in my life I felt inspired to play on a horn other than my old Selmer. The sound of PMXT-66R is very warm and I get more volume and flexibility. Jakob Dinesen


I recommend the P Mauriat to players who are looking for a vintage sound and feel, but modern intonation and keywork. The sound is really outstanding. PMXT 66R has its own personality. Adam Klemm


It has such a great combination of resonance, clarity, and a wonderful even sound from top to bottom. It is a one-of-a-kind horn that elevates my playing to another level. To say that I love it is an understatement. Darren Rahn

    "p mauriat pmxt 66rdk "

    Been looking for a new tenor and came across this one as a friend has one, what can I say about it, fantastic case, the strap that comes with it has to be one of the most comfortable Ive used. Now to the important bit the sax. . . . . . Well it blew me away, its not heavy, the tone is fantastic, it can be played quiet, or push more air through it and it just belts out what you want! This horn is old school made easy to play, everything is so responsive. If you looking for a tenor sax you really have to try this one. Its bonkers how good it is! Ive got a jody jazz Hr on her with rovener ligature. And thats me sorted. Dont need to look at other mouthpieces or ligatures, or other tenors, this horn is a real keeper! Its so smooth but when wanted can be sharp! Play one and you will find it hard not to have a massive permanent grin that may need surgery to correct! Yes its that good!

    I bought this as an upgrade as a freind had one..... so impressed with it. This horn is so lovely to play, sound is perfect, can be played loud...i mean real loud, or soft, if you want a horn that will give you every sound possible then look no further! The only addition was a Jody Jazz HR * .... oh my god what a sound! Try one and im sure you will find it hard to beat! You only need to look at the sound Scott gets in the video for it. Its a no brainer! Its BONKERS good!

    "the right balance"
    mark
    The 10ms tone and the ergos of a MK6. Imagine having all that in one saxophone: the PMXT66R. IMHO the best tenor saxophone Ive ever played or heard. It really is a no brainer.
