Everyone has different preferences, and we hope our frank reviews will make your decision easier. First, we will take a look at the P. Mauriat PMXA-67R Series Professional Alto Saxophone. Paul Mauriat was an exceptionally gifted musician and French orchestra leader, most famously conducting the Orchestre de Paul Mauriat. He specialized in the easy listening genre and is very well known for this remake of Andre Popp’s ‘Love is Blue’, which in 1968 spent 5 weeks at number 1. He sadly passed away in 2006 at the age of 81 however his great name lives on through the equally great horns of the P.Mauriat company.
Next let's have a look at the Ammoon Professional Bend Eb E-flat Alto Saxophone. This alto saxophone from Ammoon is one of the most elegant looking horns on the market right now which is staggering considering its price tag. It is made of a gorgeous red bronze with a striking antique finish and a carved pattern surface that really make this sax stand out.
This company is the epitome of class, high quality, professionalism and elegant craftsmanship of the highest caliber. They use what is known as a ‘hard hammering’ process throughout the creation of each and every one of their saxophones, utilizing the finest French brass. In fact, during manufacture, a single sax may be hammered as many as 400 times by a technician, an absolutely staggering number which highlights the level of pride and professionalism present at P. Mauriat.
It is designed for professional and novice saxophonists alike and is suitable for solo players and also use within jazz bands and classical music accompaniment. It boasts water-resistant pads and a bluing steel needle for maximum durability. The abalone shell key inlays are super comfortable and make playing easy and free-flowing.
