We have three models of Eb alto saxophone, the JP041, JP045 and the JP245. The JP245 has garnered much praise from many experts within in the industry who have described it “extraordinarily good value for money” and as having “excellent Intonation and a dynamic range that is nothing short of remarkable for an instrument at this price point.”

The JP181 has a full keywork system and like the JP081 is available both in a thumb plate or conservatoire configuration. The JP181 has received glowing reviews from Max Spiers of the Royal Ballet Sinfonia who said “the triumph of these instruments is that they really ring. The natural sound of them encourages a warm tone and the scale is even and smooth.”
The JP range of bassoons includes two models, the JP191 MKII C Shortreach bassoon and the JP291 C Bassoon.
The JP191 MKII has been described as “the perfect student bassoon” and is an excellent choice for younger players or those with smaller hands due to its unique ‘shortreach’ mechanism. It features a strong silver plated keywork mechanism, maple body and adjustable spike.
The JP291 is made from ABS making it ideal for schools, music services and training bands and orchestras.
