P. Mauriat horns to include BG France ligatures

In a move guaranteed to benefit saxophone players of all levels, JHS are excited to announce a brand new partnership between P. Mauriat and BG France. The pairing of these iconic brands will combine the extensive brasswind knowledge and expertise of two of the industry’s most respected names, resulting in instruments of unrivalled quality and unparalleled playability.

Saxophonists including Supertramps’s John Helliwell (pictured, left) and Leeds-based jazz innovator Joel Purnell worked alongside master craftsman and JHS Brasswind specialist Peter Pollard (pictured, right) to hand-select the very best ligatures to pair with P.Mauriat saxophones. Following these in-depth consultations, JHS are proud to announce that all P. Mauriat saxophones will now ship exclusively with BG Super Revelation ligatures.

Speaking on behalf of JHS, Peter Pollard said ‘I am thrilled that we are able to bring together BG and P. Mauriat, two amazing companies who attend to the little details that make a big difference, in order to achieve the best sound possible from our brasswind instruments.’

Franck Bichon of BG France commented ‘For many years now I have admired P. Mauriat CEO Alex Hsieh’s desire to offer excellent value, premium quality saxophones and horns. Musicians are always asking questions, seeking improvements, striving for perfection; these are values we share at BG. Thanks to JHS, I am proud to have BG ligatures delivered with P. Mauriat instruments, offering our players the opportunity to optimise their sound, creating more joyous and passionate music.’
