Awaiting pickup

This soldier fell in battle.  Or, more accurately was knocked over by a trumpet player.  Much damage resulted – pads were replaced, tone holes were dressed, keys were straightened, and dents were removed.

P.Mauriat System 76 Tenor Saxophone

This is one of my favorite saxophones to hit the market in recent years.  They play wonderfully, sound great, feel great, and are very well constructed.  My client had some tuning issues with the top end of the instrument, I shaded some of the tone holes to lower the pitch.

Update:  When the client picked up the horns he told me that the Selmer alto had never played as good as it does now.  We made further alterations to the ton holes on the tenor, and got its’ pitch down to where he wanted it.  Nothing quite as satisfying as a job well done.
