P Mauriat PMB-302 GL Low Bb Baritone Saxophone - Gold Lacquer
- Available to order
This is a beast, and no mistake. First up, there's a robustness about it. It feels solidly made and, from what we've experienced, they are well constructed & reliable.
As with the majority of the Mauriat range there is something going on here that you really don't get with other modern horns. The sound is huge, dark and mellow, I was reminded of the old Conn M12 T-bar horns- but with the extra advantage that the Mauriat has a modern action and its intonation is vastly superior to the notoriously dodgy tuning of the old T-Bars. Though it isn't immediately apparent.
Anyone looking for a big, powerful instrument should definitely consider the Mauriat. For those who are looking for that old fashioned sound, from Gerry Mulligan & Harry Carney to the rhythm and blues players of the 1950s- the Mauriat is about as close as you're going to get. Jules@sax.co.uk
