John Packer JP042R Tenor Saxophone - Beautiful Rose Finish!
The JP042 Bb tenor saxophone is ideal for beginners or for those wanting to source their own instrument at an affordable price. Unique benefits
There are many features on the JP042 that are present on more professional models, a fully ribbed construction and double spine on B & C keys provides additional strength.
An underslung octave mechanism also improves instrument reliability whilst blue steel springs are rust resistant with better tension memory.
Italian leather pads create a great seal that translates into a fuller sound that is more responsive which lasts longer than conventional pads.
Resonator pads also improves projection and gives the tone more depth. The instrument also features High F# and Front F keys and a floating plate design for the little finger (left hand) cluster, this aids faster movement once players have become more proficient.
An adjustable thumb rest allows a more natural and comfortable hand position to be achieved. A sling ring also provides the opportunity to make the instrument even lighter with the use of the provided sling or harness.
