JP043 Bb Soprano Saxophone

The JP043 is a high performing straight body Bb Soprano Saxophone. This instrument has found a well deserved place both as a student model but also in professional environments. Many professional players are using the JP043 everyday in live and studio performances. The instrument is supplied with a student friendly mouthpiece and responds well to the addition of a professional mouthpiece which will substantially increase its performance capacity.

The JP043 includes many components that would usually be reserved for instruments many times its price including an underslung 8ve mechanism for increased reliability, and front F, high F# and high G capabilities. Other high specification features include abalone pearl keys, blue steel springs for better tension and reduced rust and Italian leather pads with increased waterproofing. To ensure players don’t 'outgrow' the instrument quickly, the JP043 also features a floating plate design for little finger (left hand) cluster which greatly aids faster movement, an adjustable thumb rest to increase playing comfort and an adjustable back stop for easier adjustment. These features work together in order to provide students and professional alike a comfortable and stress free playing environment.

    "I received the new Soprano a few days ago.....I can't believe how good it is, not only to play but the quality of workmanship and the standard to which it is built is incredible!. We always expect to struggle with intonation a little with the best of Sops, but you just blow this and everything is there. It is without doubt the best Sop I have ever blown. I will be recommending it to all of my colleagues in the profession. I wish these instruments were around years ago. Many thanks for your speedy and efficient service."

    "For a start both the tenor and sop I ordered came within four days. Both of them have a clear, full and even sound with wonderful intonation, and even the mouthpieces that came with them are perfectly acceptable for students. Before I opened the cases I just thought of emailing you to say that, despite having a sling, smashing carry case, shoulder straps and mouthpiece and ligature you slipped up by not including a reed - but - silly me, a reed was on the mouthpiece and an extra in the case! I am using these instruments solely now and everyone is most impressed. I wish I could have had them in the ultra busy days of the 60's to 80's when I was blowing myself out every night with the Eric Winstone band and touring and recording with Sammy Davis, Sarah Vaughn et al. The demanding work of the Sondheim musicals would also have been much easier with the ease of playing that these surprising horns have."

    "I recently purchased the above Soprano Sax from you and am so impressed with it I felt I just had to contact you. I already play tenor and alto saxes in a local swing band and also a saxophone quintet. In order to dep. for our Soprano player when he's absent, I'd been playing with the idea of getting a Soprano of my own but since it wasn't going to be my main instrument, I was reluctant to spend a fortune on getting one. A friend pointed out your website to me and although I would normally be reluctant to buy before I tried an instrument, I decided to take a chance and place an order. Upon receipt I was impressed by the build quality and general feel of the instrument as well as the attractive and practical case. I have to say though that the mouthpiece supplied with it is only just adequate and initially I wasn't too taken with the sound. However, once I replaced it with a Yamaha mouthpiece and a Van Doren reed, it sounded superb and this is the only thing I would say by way of criticism. I played it today at a gig and my fellow players were as impressed with it as I am. This Soprano represents incredible value for money particularly when compared to the entry level sops made by Yamaha and the like. I am hardly of the same stature as John Whelan, who has provided a glowing account of this model on your website, but I am more than happy to add my testimonial to his in order to recommend this instrument to others. Thanks for your prompt service - keep up the good work. I shall certainly recommend you to others."
