I recently talked with a tenor player that works at Miles Ahead Music in KY. He has been playing the Mauriat tenors since they came out & he says that the new ones are a step above the initial released horns...and continuing to improve. He didn't have time to get into the details as to why, but you might want to try giving that shop a call & seeing what they can tell you.
