John Packer JP042V Tenor Saxophone

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.
