    \r\n I visited Saxalley for the first time. Great people!
    \r\nI played the P. Muriats 66 and 67 models.
    \r\nKey tables do have a series II feel.
    \r\nThe neck tip openings are large, over .515 on altos and the tenors are larger
    \r\nCharacteristically, CBalls came to mind. The horns are indeed dark and loud with a slightly less blattyness than the CBalls. Incidentally Saxalley had a Ref 54 tenor and 36. Played both. The 54 really surprised me. Very warm and resonant with great response and flexiability. Altissimo a breeze with superb scale. Spring tension about 30% less than typical. The bow on this 54 was bigger in radius like the 36. Not impressed with the Ref 36 though.
    \r\nSorry about losing focus on thread.
    \r\n
    \r\nSonics on the Muriat was simple and clear with a medium focus. Very free blowing horns that require more effort to shape and control each note.
    \r\n
    \r\nWhen I glanced over P. Muriat\'s web site and noticed albest musical, I thought I might have clue who makes them. In my directory - www.albestsax.com.tw. The link is now dead. I do recall reading last year that they OEM for CBall and Dixon and Jupiter on the albest.com.tw site
    \r\nConatct I have for albest is Galtosax6@ms75.hinet.net
    \r\nI did a search on the email.

    \r\n From what it sounds I guess the looks are where the similarities stop. I play a Martin as well as a 54. I wouldnt really compare the two...Kind of like apples and oranges....meat and cheese...something like that. Dave at Junkdude said that people are trying the Cballs and other big sounding horns and comming back and buying these horns.\r\n

    \r\n I brought my R1 Jazz curved soprano today for Tim to adjust, it took him 2 hours so I got a chance to play some P. Mauriat soprano sax... One word, "WOW!!!" If I have money at the moment, I would take it right away without any hesitates... It\'s absolutely beatiful: control, reponses, & tone... The action is fast, I mean REALLY FAST. It reponses so fast that the moment I finger a note, I immediately feel the response, the vibration and the note just speaks... and it is much easier than my R1 Jazz (after the adjustment from Tim, my sop. is very close but still, not equal to the reponse of the P. Mauriats) The tone is what I\'m looking for. I always look for a spreading kind of tone, and this is it. It can fill the whole room easily, without the harsh. I will save some money now and my next purchase, for sure gonna be a P. Mauriat straight sop. sax.

    \r\n I own a chu berry tenor made in 1926 and a mauriat sys.76... my previous horn was a MkVi... the PROs from mauriat: great action, nice intonation even on altissimo -much better than some mkVIs i\'ve tried-... it\'s a great all-around horn. CONs: It depends on what you look for in a horn. If you look for warmth, darkness and subtones with fat low end, go Conn. Like most modern horns, Mauriat is great for altissimo and fluidity with lots of edge.\r\n

    \r\n I have been playing my P Mauriat PMXT 66R for the last 5 years and it has held up extremely well. I have had to get it serviced from time to time.
    \r\nIt plays as well as it did when i bought it and even better since it has aged. there is some tarnishing and green deposits in some areas but that gives it character. i play as a professional musician and do an average of 8 shows a month. It is a great horn, I love it!\r\n

    \r\n Sig,
    \r\n
    \r\nTwo things: 1) They\'re not a 54 copy, definitely a Serie II.
    \r\n
    \r\n2) They\'re already starting to up the prices. I got last year\'s price from Tim simply because he didn\'t have any in stock for me to buy until after the first.
    \r\n
    \r\nAs a side note, I went and picked mine out last week. I played three of them, and the thing that I noticed was that they\'re VERY consistent. I picked mine because it seemed to respond slightly better than the other two, but not that much. If I didn\'t know better, I would have thought that Tim handed me the same horn three times.
    \r\n
    \r\nIt should be here any day now.

    \r\n Just thought I\'d add my $0.02 about the Mauriats. I was up at Tim\'s a couple weeks ago for an adjustment to my ref 54 alto. Tim let me try several tenors while he worked on my alto (Kenny - I was the guy that was there when you were checking out soprano mouthpeices).
    \r\n
    \r\nAnyway - the Mauriat tenor was a very pleasant suprize. It is very much a series II clone except the tone is a little warmer and spread. Think of it as a series II that is slightly less punchy and powerfull. The tone isn\'t nearly as dark as the Ref 54 or 36 tenors, but the Mauriat was waaaayyy easier for me to blow than those Reference horns.
    \r\n
    \r\nI think these horns are a real contender, especially if you consider the price. The thing I always fear when looking at saxes in that price range is that they will sound like a student horn with a thin and weak tone quality. But that wasn\'t the case at all. There is really a core to the sound that will project just fine. It does have the full, sultry, enveloping sound that puts it in the professional sax category. It\'s the real deal.
    \r\n
    \r\nI do wish they had other finish options available though. I\'m not big fan of the matte finishes or the fake vintage patina......\r\n

    \r\n Hey sweetsax, didn\'t know that you was the guy there I will bring my Ref. 54 alto to him for an adjustment job too, Tim did a wonderful job on my Sop... Like you said, the thing I like the best about P. Mauriat sax is that they just blow so freely and easily, the notes just pop out and you can feel the vibration the moment you blow...

    \r\n Hey Kenny,
    \r\nYep that was me. I hope you are enjoying that R1 Jazz curved sop. I knew what it was when I saw the case and it made me jealous, man.
    \r\n
    \r\nDo you have tenor sax? I want to get one soon, but since it\'s not my main horn, I want to keep it as cheap as possible. I was thinking of either going vintage or getting a Yamaha, but playing those Mauriats made me think twice. They are over 20% cheaper than the Yamaha Z, and they seem to play real nice. hhhhmmmmm, decisions, decisions.....\r\n

    \r\n I went and picked up my alto today and played for about an hour.
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'m still sold on it. I had a few probelms with the low register, but I\'m going to (temporarily) attribute that to it being a new horn.
    \r\n
    \r\nThis thing sings, and it projects VERY well.
    \r\n
    \r\nThere were some concerns regarding the durability of these horns, and after playing it for an hour, I think (just the feel of the horn) that they\'re very sturdy. A friend of mine picked it up and I asked him if he thought it was sturdy, and he seemed to think so.
    \r\n
    \r\nSo anyway, I\'m going to be practicing a lot this weekend, I love this horn.

    \r\n Hey Chris,
    \r\nKeep us posted on how the horn holds up and settles in after the honeymoon.
    \r\n
    \r\nI have been saving my pennies for a new tenor and I wanted to keep the cost as low as possible without sacraficing too much in the way of quality and sound (so yamaha custom is the obvious choice).
    \r\n
    \r\nBut these new Mauriats present a new and interesting option. The one I tested played great, and the cost is even lower than a yamaha custom.
    \r\nI just don\'t want to buy the mauriate and find myself yearning for "better" horn later. I already went through that never-ending quest with my alto, and I can\'t do that again for tenor. I just want one that I\'ll be happy with forever.
    \r\n
    \r\nbut then again, we saxophonist never seem to be satisfied. It\'s all part of the sickness........\r\n

    \r\n I got a message from Tim yesterday informing me of 3 brand spanking new tenors that came in yesterday. I had the afternoon free, so I drove up to Sax Alley today to check them out. Along for the ride came my trusty The Martin Tenor. I used a Zagar Cool School and a Ponzol Super for testing. When I arrived, I was somewhat disappointed that the tenors were still in the boxes, and that Tim hadn\'t had the time to check them out first. Oh well.....Tim is WAY busy with over 2 weeks worth of work to do. On to the reviews.
    \r\n
    \r\nTenor #1
    \r\nWOW! This played better than I remembered from the last one I tried 1 month ago, and this horn hasn\'t even been set-up. Big, thick, dark resonant sound without sounding veiled at all. The horn just vibrated in my hands, kind of like my old \'36 10M. Ergonomics were great, and it was very free-blowing. Intonation was just fine. Great first impression.
    \r\n
    \r\nTenor #2
    \r\nSame core sound, just a little brighter. More focused sound. Feels exactly the same.
    \r\n
    \r\nTenor #3
    \r\nSomewhere in between #1 and #2 in trms of sound. A little more resistance, but that could be due to needing adjustment. At this point I was just going on pure sound.
    \r\n
    \r\nReality check time: I tooled around on my Martin again to get a comparison in terms of sound, volume, and tone. Good so far. So back to #1. Tim had 4 extra necks that he had ordered, so I got to try them out on #1.
    \r\n
    \r\nNeck #1
    \r\nMore focused sound. A little smaller of a sound.
    \r\n
    \r\nNeck #2
    \r\nEven more focused sound. Brightened up the sound more than I liked.
    \r\n
    \r\nNeck #3
    \r\nVery close to the original neck. Just not as FAT sounding in the lower half of the horn. A little louder than the original neck.
    \r\n
    \r\nNeck #4
    \r\nSounds like neck #1.
    \r\n
    \r\nI put the orginal neck back on and voila.......Big, fat, lush sound. It was cool to try the four other necks though to see what a big difference they made to the over all impression of tenor #1. At this point, I was still up in the air about increasing the debt I had for so long worn down to not much. I slapped my set-up on my Martin one last time and.......the sound WAS smaller than tenor #1. A note about my Martin. I have played this horn against most horns on the market, and it always came out the tenor on top. What can I say, I\'ll be picking up my new tenor in a few weeks after Tim gives it the new horn set-up.

    \r\n Yo BigDaddyJ,
    \r\n
    \r\nCongrats on the new purchase! My theory is: who cares about having good credit tomorrow when you can buy a new axe TODAY!
    \r\n
    \r\nSo were the four different necks you tried all the same finish? Were they all just extra necks Tim has in stock for replacements, or are there now different necks being offered as accessories like silver, copper, plated, etc?
    \r\n
    \r\nI going to go back up to Tim\'s in a couple weeks and give those Mauriat tenors a more extensive and thorough play test. Last time I was there, I spent most of my time with some of the vintage horns he had. This time, I\'m gonna try the Mauriats against the two Reference tenors that Tim has. I played a Reference 36 at Flesher-Hinton last week that was incredible. It was the only well wet-up 36 I\'ve ever tried, and it played like a dream. If I would have had the money, I would have bought it right then. But those horns are crazy expensive!!!
    \r\n
    \r\nWhen I go to Tim\'s, I\'m really going focus on the Reference tenors and the Mauriat. I\'m really hoping the Mauriat holds it\'s own against the selmers because of the huge price difference....\r\n

    \r\n Yo sweetsax,
    \r\n
    \r\nThe 4 other necks looked exactly like the stock neck. As far as I know, they were the same brass. I\'ve played that Ref 36 at Flesher-Hinton. Good horn. They also had a lacquer 82Z that I thought played better though. Too bad the 82Z was brighter than I liked.
    \r\n
    \r\nTim sold that REf 54. If you dig the Selmer sound, I\'m not so sure the P. Mauriat is the way to go for you. I\'ve been going down the Road to the Darkside for a while now, and that\'s why I love these P. Mauriats. I guess you never know until you try \'em though. Try to play more than 1 if Tim has them. As noted in my review, one of the tenors had a more focused sound than the one I am buying.

    \r\n Hey BigDaddyJ
    \r\n
    \r\nI do dig the Selmer sound, but mostly for alto. I really don\'t have a frame of reference for the tenor though. In my limited testing experience, I\'ve had a more favorable reaction to tenors that I thought had a BIG, smooth, and lush sound. Something that I could whisper out a nice ballad with, but also push hard when I have a solo in big band. Some of the Conns and Bueschers that Tim had gave me that reaction - like as soon as I blew into the horn it just rumbled in my hands and filled the room with that big, bold tenor sax sound. I remember the Mauriat being similar to that, but I was mainly interested in testing all the vintage altos and tenors he had, so I didn\'t spend enough time with the Mauriat tenor.
    \r\n
    \r\nI went to Music Arts in Westminster and played the unlaq Z, a custom EX, and a Ref 54 tenor. I didn\'t like either of the Yamahas. I thought they were VERY bright and completely lacking tonal character. The 54 sounded much better, but it was out of adjustment and had a very stuffy middle D, D#, and E. Going chromatically from middle B to F, the horn was just all over the place.
    \r\n
    \r\nOn a funny side note - the kid working at Music Arts (who said he was a sax player) told me that both the Z and the 54 were unlacquered horns, but that the Z was polished and the 54 was not. "That\'s why the 54 already has that worn and tarnished look." I told him the 54 has a matte style laq and is treated to give it a dull and inconsistent patina. He looked at me like I was insane.
    \r\n
    \r\nAnyway, I hope to get up to Tim’s place again real soon, before he sells that 36. I want to spend more time with those Mauriats and compare those two extensively.
    \r\n
    \r\nI think a Denver sax summit would be a good idea. I\'m not sure how many members are from our area. At least a few in this thread.\r\n

    \r\n"BIG, smoot, and lush sound"......That\'s what I like to hear! We ARE on the same page. That\'s the reason I sold a great Selmer Mark VI and bought a \'39 Conn 10M for. I eventually moved onto Martins, and I have been playing Martins for over 10 years. The P. Mauriat is the first modern sax I\'ve played that gives me the same thrill from hearing the sound of a tenor as my Martin. B&S tenors are up there too. By the way, Tim has the BEST Martin I\'ve every played at Sax Alley right now. He\'s got this Martin Magna tenor that is AWESOME! You have got to try it. I agree about the sound of Yamahas being to bright. Huge sound but just to piercing. I\'ll throw something up in the Get Together section about a general sax meet for the Denver area.

    \r\n Hey Joel,
    \r\nA big, smooth, lush sound, but also a sound that projects well. Last year I got rid of my YAS 61 because the sound was not projecting enough for what I needed. With that old Yamaha, it was like there was a certain point with that sax where it could not take any more air without backing up on me. I tried all sorts of mouthpieces with ridiculously huge tip openings and still, that Yamaha 61 would just not open up for me.
    \r\n
    \r\nSo I went on a quest for a new alto. I have no brand loyalty at all, and I have not fallen for the Selmer mystique. That being said, I bought a new Ref 54 alto after trying everything out there. With the 54, there is no limit to how much air it will take, and the tone just has a beautiful complexity to it. Even at quite volumes, there is still a richness to the sound. The Yamaha only had one good volume – medium loud. Too soft, and the sound just died. Too loud and the sound became shrill and edgy.
    \r\n
    \r\nI want a similar concept for tenor, which is why the 36 appealed to me so much. But I am hoping the Mauriat can give me what I want for under half the cost. Hopefully, I’ll get up to Tim’s real soon and give those Mauriats a more serious blow….

    \r\n I have a P Mauriat on order from Tim and hope it will be my horn search ending?? I played a The Martin for a few years and really like the ergonomics and ease of playing along with the fat alt but there was a "tubbyness" in the tone that reminded me of big band 50s sound that I didn\'t like so I went on the search. I am always drawn to the selmer tone (read Brecker and Picket) but want it fatter and with more punch so I can be heard . ( I did buy a Mk 6 last year and it played stuffy and slow so I resold it for the 3 K I had into it). I picked up a YTS 62 II a few months ago and liked the better core to the tone than The Martin but I have to admit I am missing the fatter higher register and alt that the Martin had and the tone and inability of this horn to stay in adjustment is getting me pissed. I recently went to Las Vegas and tryed out Medusas, the new Yani, and a ref 54 and really liked the tone on the Ref and how easy it was to play. So, I talked to Tim and he told me that this Mauriat sounds better than the ref, has a fatter tone and is less than half the price so I said okay, for the 100 dollar gamble . (shipping both ways) I\'ll check it out. If anyone has Mp3s of what they sound like on the P along with their previous horns I\'d love to hear them. I know that my results might be different but you can hear tendencies from such a comparison. thanks K\r\n

    \r\n Yo Keith,
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'ll be picking up my Mauriat tenor with rolled tone holes pretty damn soon. I\'ve been playing on Martins for almost 10 years, and this is the only modern tenor that I\'m willing to replace my The Martin tenor with. The tone of these Mauriat tenors RULE! Big, dark, throaty, FAT........The sound of the horn I picked out is some where between my Martin tenor and a vintage Keilwerth. Man, just talking about it makes my fingers itch to play it.

    \r\n Hey BigDaddyJ
    \r\nI noticed that new model on Tim\'s web site with the rolled-tone holes. I emailed him a few times to inquire about it (I haven\'t made it up there to do any more play testing, and in the meantime I ordered myself a Keilwerth tenor).
    \r\n
    \r\nAnyway, one thing Tim wasn\'t sure of is how the rolled tone hole is built. Is it a soldered-on peice like the Keilwerth, or is it part of the chimney that is folded over like the old Conns? Were you able to tell this by looking at the horn at all? Also - Tim\'s website says it has a "bigger bell flare, like a Keilwerth." Is the bell just flared more, or did you notice if it has the bigger, longer bow with a bigger volume bell?
    \r\n
    \r\nSorry to ask all these questions. I would ask Tim to email me pictures, but I\'ve had him send me tons of pictures lately of saxes I didn\'t intend to buy but I was just curious about. I know Tim is a busy guy so I don\'t want to keep doing that unless I\'m serious about buying.
    \r\n
    \r\nI take delivery of my new Keilwerth on Wednesday and I can\'t WAIT! Part of my excitement comes from the good price I got for it. I only paid a couple hundred more than the price of one of those new Mauriats. I could easily afford to own both if decide I still want a Mauriat.
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'m with you Keith - I played a couple of Ref tenors recently that blew me away, but sticker shock man!! I\'ve already paid off the debt I accumulated getting my Ref Alto, and I just can\'t justify doing that again for a tenor (especially when it\'s not my main horn).
    \r\n
    \r\nAnyway - I hope you guys enjoy your new (AFFORDABLE) horns!!!!\r\n

    \r\n Yo sweetsax,
    \r\n
    \r\nthey look like true rolled tone holes (ala conn), but I\'m assuming they are soldered on like modern Keilwerths. With the vintage lacquer look, it\'s impossible to tell. I don\'t think the bell is Keilwerth big, but I didn\'t put it next to a KW. I think the flare is just a little more than the normal Mauriat. The sound IS bigger than the straight tone hole model I had previously picked out, but that could be variances other than the bell or toneholes. I was blown away at how big a difference the different necks made. All I know is that prototype rolled tone hole model did it for me. There\'s a good chance my horn will be done this week. Since your in the Denver area, we can meet somewhere, and you can give it a blow and see how it compares to your Keilwerth.
    \r\n
    \r\nYo Keith,
    \r\n
    \r\nwhat kind of mouthpiece are you using? What mpc\'s have you tried? 10 years ago I was going for the Picket sound. I had a great late model Mark VI, but the various Berg\'s I tried just didn\'t work for me.

    \r\n I played one of the RTH models (66R I think) at my dealers today. Such a dark, lush, smokey sound. I had him put it aside for me, and I\'ve got to work out the finances. I was VERY impressed that a horn in that price range would blow my skirt up like that.
    \r\n
    \r\nIt might be a little dark for big band kind of work (not sure how it would cut), but for my personal enjoyment or mic\'d work, it would be hard to beat. Of course, I was playing my Barone metal Jazz piece, which is a dark sounding piece, so that might have something to do with it. I just really loved the combination. I finally like my tenor sound a bit.
    \r\n
    \r\nI felt like the horn was built well, and it was MUCH lighter than my SX90R. A 3 or 4 hour rehearsal with the Keilwerth around your neck is tiring, but this tenor is very comfortable. I couldn\'t recommend one more.
    \r\n
    \r\nBTW, my dealer friend will make some very good deals on them, if anyone else is interested.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe only downside is the crappy case. Very plastic feeling. I will immediately move mine into a Protec.\r\n

    \r\nWhere did you find one? I\'m interested in the alto with rolled toneholes. The prices are unbelievable and I\'ve read lots of good reviews, but I really want to get my hands on one and play it.

    \r\n Mr. Prewett is handling them. He\'ll make you a REALLY good deal on them. I think that he has an alto coming any day now. If it\'s anything like the tenor, you\'ll be amazed.\r\n

    \r\n Thanks for the information on the Mauriat - I\'m hooked - maury, is it? (Sorry if I mispelled your name). I\'m interested in the distributor you mention, especially if you are in the Southeast, (alabama) area as you seem to be. Who is this person, and how do we contact?
    \r\n

    \r\n Well, I\'m kind of in a cash crunch right now, but I think that I\'m just going to float the Mauriat on a credit line account and go ahead and pick it up this week. I just can\'t get that lush sound out of my head.\r\n

    \r\n Just gave a Mauriat System 76 2nd Edition alto (dark lacquer) for a test run......sweeeet! It played well through all the registers with relative ease. The altissimo was good but could have been a bit more punchy, but I suspect that is because of my mouthpiece/reed set-up. Played it on a Lakey hard rubber 6* with an old Rico Jazz select 3S. Maybe a harder reed would work better for me on that.
    \r\nThe tone of the horn was great, well rounded and solid. It reminded me of Art Pepper\'s sound. The low end was easy to execute both with harder attack and sub-tone. And it dindn\'t feel really \'honky\' as altos tend to be.
    \r\nI like this horn, it is a really solid instrument with good tone, intonation, tone and tuning. very nice vintage look as well. Cheers!\r\n

      Sig,

      Two things: 1) They're not a 54 copy, definitely a Serie II.

      2) They're already starting to up the prices. I got last year's price from Tim simply because he didn't have any in stock for me to buy until after the first.

      As a side note, I went and picked mine out last week. I played three of them, and the thing that I noticed was that they're VERY consistent. I picked mine because it seemed to respond slightly better than the other two, but not that much. If I didn't know better, I would have thought that Tim handed me the same horn three times.

      It should be here any day now.
