Description (revised)

Vintage L. Pierret "Artiste Compétition" alto-sax # 22962

In 1906 L. Pierret ex working of Mons, Millereau (repurchased in 1931 by Henri Selmer) and Besson create its company which will be repurchased by Selmer in 1950 but guard the patents with its name. It will continue to make manufacture under its name in Mantes La Jolie (near Paris) by various neighbors and friends (Selmer, Beaugnier…) and inter alia various stencil key sets “stencils” like the fact so well Couesnon.

Selmer which has its factory with Mantes is at the time a mark less famous than Pierret and no doubt, in my spirit, that Selmer arranges its 22 then studies its MK6 in the shade of Pierret which it also manufactures under the benevolent eye of L. Pierret which monitors also its stencil key sets manufactured by Beaugnier in the factory of at side.

Besides during this period, after 1950, the Selmer factory of Mantes La Jolie continued to assemble the parts retrieval from stock Pierret one finds many similarities between Pierret "Competition" and Selmer models.

This one carries n° # 22962 and probably dates from the beginning of the years 1950. It is characteristic of the hand made sax, the chimneys are rolled, its high weight (2,4 kg) reveals the quality of brass. One can consider silvering present at 80 %. For a use by a musician, a revision and a cleaning will be necessary. A collector will be able to leave it just as it is "Dans son jus".

Comes complete in his original box, with lyrus and mouth with binding and cover-nozzle Couesnon.
