review by Oliver Santana
The PMSA-86 UL has a unique flavor with versatility to control styles from legit playing to jazz, pop and rock, as a career lead player this alto fits perfectly in all big band and soloist situations giving you the presence you need always with a beautiful powerful lead alto sound. The action, dynamics of range, control and sweetness are all in one, an alto that fits my personality both my playing and character putting together what I called mind-performance. This alto has my deepest respect and recommendation for all professional players.
“"I had been playing a Yamaha YAS-62 alto from the time I was 17. I never thought i would find a better sounding horn unless I could afford to buy a vintage Mark VI and spend thousands of dollars.”

“All around Beautiful horn! The 86UL is exactly what i was looking for in an alto, it has that warm/ rich/ solid/ full-bodied tone.. this sax truly allows me to "Be myself" it allows my personality to really come through in my playing, i feel completely uninhibited by the horn, which for me, is what it all comes down to.”
