Rich sounding, free-blowing, professional-quality curved soprano saxophone.
The P. Mauriat PMSS-2400 DK is a beautiful, charming instrument, and makes an excellent specialty or double for any serious reed player. Curved soprano is by its nature a very sweet ax with its melifluous timbre and its reminiscece of a high female voice. Relative to its more common cousin the straight soprano, the curved soprano allows the player to enjoy a greater immediacy due to its ability to provide a more direct monitor off the bell, and offers a wholly different experience than the traditional "unemployment stick."
Fine keywork and expert craftsmanship characterize the PMSS-2400. These saxophones have quickly become popular across America and across the world by virtue of their attractive price and excellent quality. Its range covers low Bb to high F# and features a dark, brushed antique lacquer and a detachable curved neck. The PMSS-2400's Intonation is excellent, as is its projection and overall tone.
Order a P. Mauriat and get a soprano that's ahead of the curve.

Comments about P. Mauriat PMSS-2400 DK Curved Soprano Saxophone:
So I bought this horn after seeing the video on YouTube with James Carter playing the straight soprano. I have a preference for curved sopranos so I bought the P Mauriat DK curved soprano. It came in a nice foam gig bag which protects the horn well. So I started playing the horn, noticed the intonation was spot on, which for me is very important. I use a Selmer S-80 hard rubber mouthpiece, "D" opening with a Van Doren ZZ #3 reed. I noticed the sound was strong and loud with good projection. It just "felt good" in my hands. I only meant to play the horn for a few minutes and next thing you know an hour had passed, that is how much I enjoyed playing this horn. Now to compare it to the Yanagisawa curved soprano which I also own, I would say the Yanagisawa (a superb horn) has more of what has been described as a "sweet" sound, a tad easier to finger the low Bb, B and C ergonomically, where as the P Mauriat has a little more darker sound. You can't go wrong with the P Mauriat though and I highly recommend this curved soprano. I have played both in front of my musician friends and they both have gotten favorable comments. This is a more affordable alternative to the Yanagisawa with great quality in the horn similar to the Yanagisawa. I give the Yanagisawa a slight edge however. Nevertheless I am very happy to be the owner of both of these horns!
