to me, P.Mauriat is too commercialized. We see their ads everywhere. The owner of this brand really spent LOTS of money on those ads in many magazines in different languages. And I am sure he is paying REALLY REALLY good money to those players who appear in the ads. The brand owner probably think he is part of Selmer, vintage this , vintage that, VI this, VI that, Paris this, Paris that, French this, French that.... Come on... GROW UP !!!! How much does it take to make a P.Mauriat sax ?? Probably 20% of it's selling price or maybe less...:? :?
