  • Author: John McKenzie - Director of the Clarinet & Saxophone Society of Great Britain
    "Those readers who are clarinet teachers will be aware of the wide variety of student quality clarinets that are now on the market both from music shops and the internet. Some instruments should be avoided at all costs being poorly made and if purchased will only lead to frustration both for the player and the teacher! Well the shop says it’s ok for a beginner and can be exchanged for a better instrument later. From time to time this mantra has been repeated by a parent to me despite my attempts at fore warning!

    The student needs a good quality instrument if they are going to progress. The recently launched John Packer Clarinet Model 121 Mark 4 is worthy of serious consideration. Seeing its Mark 4 implies some improvements have been made to the original JP student clarinet. Having seen the original instrument I would say that attention has been given to feel of the instrument and it has a response that will suit a young beginner. The model I have seen was free-blowing with good intonation. The mouthpiece is basic and adequate and I know JP offer the opportunity to upgrade to, for example, a Vandoren mouthpiece. The keywork is well-made, silver plated and comfortable. The thumbrest is adjustable. The case will appeal to the student in that a zipped cover is provided complete with shoulder strap. The price will appeal to school and music service purchasers who purchasing in bulk, striving to widen opportunities for children to learn musical instruments, require dependable instruments."
