The JP045 is a fantastic starter model Eb Alto Saxophone which, through an extensive period of research and development, has achieved a level of performance usually reserved for instruments much more expensive. This new design JP instrument is solidly built and durable, standing the test of time in many UK education establishments. The JP045 has garnered much praise from many experts within the industry who have described it as “a professional standard instrument” and as playing “better than most saxes that cost ten times as much and outclasses anything else in a similar price range.”
The instrument also features many high specification elements such as an underslung 8ve mechanism, blue steel springs and a high F# and front F keys. Well crafted, the instrument is durable and robust with a fully ribbed construction and a double spine on B & C. Italian leather pads and resonator pads are equipped as standard.
The JP045 is supplied with everything that is needed to get a new player started. The instrument is supplied with a JP Mouthpiece, lightweight case and starter accessory pack including mouthpiece cap, ligature and JP reed. The case is well designed to be robust yet lightweight and to provide as much protection to your instrument as possible. It is equipped with backpack straps and a comfortable shoulder strap as standard and also includes a small storage pocket accessible from the outside suitable for storing small accessories and sheet music.
Review of the JP045 Saxophone by Jamie Talbot
* * * * *
Frankly I’m stunned. It plays better than most saxes that cost ten times as much and outclasses anything else in a similar price range. I’ll be using it tonight in “The Drowsy Chaperone” show in the west end. Tomorrow I’m recording some music for the new Dreamworks film called “Bee Movie” and on Sunday I’m playing in the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium. I shall be using the JP045 on each job and am looking forward to it – it’s great!
