The Tenor Sax of Your Dreams

P. Mauriat designed their Grand Dreams 285 tenor saxophone for the new generation of artists who are pushing beyond the boundaries of convention with their music. Built to satisfy the demanding requirements of the most discerning players, the Grand Dreams 285 tenor brings a fresh, distinctive tonal color to the P. Mauriat tenor saxophone lineup. Graced with intricate hand engraving on the bell, this masterful horn provides fast, fluid action and delivers a richly complex, brilliant, and punchy sound. This is an excellent all-rounder that’s as adept at laying down an unforgettable pop solo as it is at chasin’ the Trane. The key layout has been improved to deliver for ease of reach, which you’ll especially appreciate while executing fast, challenging passages. The Grand Dreams 285 tenor comes with the excellent Super VI neck, which features a wide taper for freer blowing, adding to the sonic charms of this impressive horn. As with all P. Mauriat saxophones, stunning aesthetics and exceptional build quality are baked in, with precision ergonomic keywork, excellent responsiveness, and superior intonation yielding an instrument that faithfully conveys every nuance of expression in your playing.

Super VI neck: free-blowing design with wide bore taper

P. Mauriat’s Super VI neck is a favorite among experienced and professional saxophonists. The Super VI’s wider bore taper delivers a big, broad, bright tone and a responsive feel. With its free-blowing design, the Super VI gives you total control over the dynamics and timbral variation of your horn. Growling, raspy, breathy, or sweet — the Super VI neck allows you to explore the full voice of your instrument, and you can push it as hard as you want with the confidence you’ll be rewarded with a commanding sound.

Instruments that exude timeless character

The metals used in P. Mauriat saxes are remarkably resonant due to the company’s arduous hand-hammering process, in which a saxophone body is hammered up to 400 times before moving on to the next artisan for final shaping. Tone holes are drawn from an instrument individually to ensure the precision and uniformity necessary for superior response and intonation. At P. Mauriat, lacquer is applied in three separate layers in order to achieve timeless, vintage visuals that will stand the test of time. Beautiful hand engraving is artfully performed with a simple hand tool and years of expertise. Once finished, each P. Mauriat saxophone is meticulously inspected and tested by one of the company’s roster of quality-control artists to make certain you receive a perfect instrument that will go the distance in your career.

Handcrafted vintage-inspired modern saxophones

An industry leader in vintage-inspired modern saxophones, P. Mauriat handcrafts their instruments in the French tradition with an emphasis on full-bodied vintage tone and optimized modern playability. To achieve these goals, P. Mauriat employs proprietary manufacturing techniques that result in instruments of outstanding quality and precision. Their zealous focus on fine craftsmanship produces saxophones that are highly prized among professional saxophonists and advancing players alike. Handmade from the finest materials and highlighted by elegant genuine abalone or pearl key touches to bring out the intrinsic characteristics of each individual model, the aesthetic beauty of P. Mauriat saxophones mirrors their vintage-flavored tone. Sweetwater is delighted to bring you P. Mauriat’s line of extraordinary instruments.
