The Le Bravo is a beautifully crafted instrument that will make any serious saxophonist happy to play it.

P. Mauriat has designed the quintessential 'power horn' with the new Le Bravo 200 Alto Sax. The warm, resonant red brass of the body creates a full heavy sound but is perfectly evened out with the nickel-silver Super VI neck. This perfectly married combination of metals reults in a sax with serious punch and an edge capable of a commanding presence in any musical environment. The Le Bravo Series saxophones also have excellent intonation and blows easy in all registers up through altissimo. Matte finish and genuine abalone key touches gives this instrument a touch of class to go with a straight to the point saxophone sound.

Since their inception, P. Mauriat saxes have become sought after because of the quality of their materials and crafstmanship. The french brass and other metals are exceptionally resonant due to the extensive hand-hammering process. Each tone hole is drawn from the saxophone one by one to ensure precision and consistency while the lacquer process is applied in three seperate stages in order to achieve a timeless, vintage look that will last for ages. After the hand ingraving is completed, ecah instrument is carefully inspected and tested one by one to ensure only the finest instruments come off their assembly line.

Wow the reviews!

Comments about P.Mauriat Le Bravo 200 Alto Saxophone:

First of all, you cannot compare this to a Selmer AS500. That's just a re-branded mass-production horn that's decidedly in the student category. The neck on this sax is worth more than half an AS500 in the used market.

I agree this is perhaps overpriced, but it's a very solid top intermediate/entry pro horn.

A bit below an average horn from Taiwan

    Comments about P.Mauriat Le Bravo 200 Alto Saxophone:

    Overall the sax is well built for beginners or for someone who just wanted to have PM. The quality is a little bit better than some of the imports from China, but it's certainly below the average saxophones that's made in Taiwan. I would choose Selmer or Cannoball over it. In all honesty, I am very disappointed with what I have received and will try to sell mine in the second hand market.

    If you are looking for a student horn, I think you will be better off with AS500. This is just a saxophone that's trying to copy off the AS500
