Hello Everyone...

First of all, I would like to say that this forum is awesome. I thank all of you who are sharing valuable information with everyone else. :)

Okay... here is my question...

I am going to purchase a P.Mauriat Swing 55 JX Alto Saxophone soon but when I explore this forum, I found out that noone gives any information about this specific model of P.Mauriat.

Could anyone please share his\her opinions and experiences about the P.Mauriat Swing 55 JX Alto Saxophone?

I thank upfront to all of you who will.

Sincerely Yours

Where are you getting yours? Try it out first see if you like it, in the end that's all that matters right? :)
Dear CountSpatula,

I live in istanbul Turkey. And here is totally poor country when it comes to saxophone. I will buy it online from somewhere other than where I reside ( probably from the

So, I have no chance to blow into any of these horns in the first place. :(

I really need the opinions of other sax gurus here about the P.Mauriat Swing 55 JX Alto Saxophone.

Dear Mr. Dolson and Soulysax,

Thank you so much for your opinions. Well, I used to practice 11 to 14 hours like Bird did once upon a time (thought I'll fly over Bird by doing that outrageous practice schedule) =)

But then I sold my sax due to my bad economical situations. But now, something inside of me came alive again when I hear Bird in my ipod.

I am ready to buy a sax that fits my soul and Swing 55 JXs are giving me the feeling of what I need from an alto sax when I just look at it. I know that I might sound naive by saying that, I agree. But honestly I am talking from my heart.

So, at least if someone who tried playing with one of those SWING JX 55 may say his\her feelings and opinions, then it will help me alot before purchasing the beauty.

And Mr. Dolson,

I will have the most fun times among you all in this forum. You are all truly sax gurus.

Thank you so much in advance.

Sincerely Yours

Yigit Demirel

While I agree wholeheartedly with Dave Dolson, I also understand the creative spirit that is inspired by the beauty of the instrument as well as the sound coming out. However, because of your situation, it is always better to go with the tried and true. There are a lot of great looking horns out there that also have the reputation to back them up.

They are brand new horns that have only just hit the market, so your best bet really is to ask the people who know the P. Mauriats better than anyone, and that would be Tim at Sax Alley, or Roger Greenwood.
I thank everyone here who answered my question. I definitely get in touch with Mr. Tim and Mr. Greenwood immediately.

Thank you so much soulysax for your opinions.

I will search for the saxophone in the way you were trying to explain it to me.
