P Mauriat PMXA-67RX UL Influence Alto Saxophone - Unlacquered
- in stock
A magnificent "stand out" sax with vintage appeal.
A true modern classic - the sax that inspired a generation of vintage style horns. This top of the range unlacquered (UL) Influence (X) model features solid nickel silver key touches for improved player feedback and extra resonance.
The solid nickel silver key touches featured on the Influence (X) model are unique in the world of professional saxes.
The Mauriat 67R 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" alto features an unlacquered finish (UL), rolled tone holes, beautiful abalone shell key touches and high F# key. The unlacquered look is in keeping with the vintage tone this model is famous for. The larger bell and lack of lacquer further encourages a full bodied, powerful 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.

The 67R has one of the biggest sounds around with it's enlarged bell and now they've removed the lacquer and added metal key touches so the biggest just got bigger! I must to confess to being a little sceptical about the metal key touches but wow, they do make a difference! More metal = more resonance and there is even more body and power here, especially noticeable in the higher registers plus they feel and look great. Phill (Sax.co.uk)
I was looking for an alto with a lot of personality and attitude and I have found those qualities in the 67R. Hats off to P Mauriat for making such an incredible saxophone. Darren Rahn
My P Mauriat PMXA 67R is a real pleasure to play. My sound has opened up since I started playing it and I can hear a richness, fullness and depth that with practise I can get from this superbly made instrument. Nathaniel Facey
My PMXA 67R is a true work of art and a joy to play. It is easily the best alto that I have played in my 35-year-plus musical career. Whether it is playing behind the Four Tops and Temptations, or blending with an orchestra, the PMXA 67R has proven to be reliable and a joy on which to perform. Farrell Vernon
