review by Arno Haas
It was a long wish of mine to play a soprano without the changeable neck, just to play one piece!
Now at last I got to my hands one of the first P. Mauriat soprano- System 76 UL one - piece body. UL stands for unlaquered and it's a "one piece" Soprano in the System 76 series.
“When I tried for first time a P.Mauriat I could not believe that a horn made today could sound so good and be so easy to play. I thought that it was only a privilege from the vintage horns.”
“This saxophone delivers for me in the same way that the P. Mauriat tenors and altos do. I finally feel content with a soprano – this thing is great!”
“I had the pleasure of trying this sax at the 2010 NAMM show. This instrument left me with out words.”
“I wanted to thank for the phenomenal SYSTEM 76 2nd EDITION SOPRANO saxophone. I can describe this soprano in two words, UNBRIDLED ENERGY. I was amazed at how effortless this soprano was to play in tune throughout the entire range of the instrument. High notes speak without having to contort my embouchure, yet the low notes are easily controlled to achieve even the softest of dynamics. I especially appreciate the tonal colors that are now available to me on this soprano.”
“This is one of the best sopranos I´ve ever had, I used to play for many years the selmer serie III, now I´ll sale it.”
