P. Mauriat System 76 Professional Soprano Saxophone
P. Mauriats System 76 soprano saxophone is one of the most affordable saxophones on this list. The body is hand hammered from a single piece of brass, allowing for a warm, centered tone and has a large bore and bell for maximum projection without compromising the tone quality. In addition to being available with two necks, the System 76 soprano saxophone can also be purchased as a one-piece straight neck horn, based on player preference. The downside to this saxophone is it does not have a high G-key, which comes standard on most other professional soprano saxophones. However, this can be worked around. Outside the standard gold lacquer, the P. Mauriat System 76 soprano saxophone is also available in a vintage dark lacquer, for a slightly darker tone. The lacquer is applied in three stages for an aesthetically pleasing look and even coating.
