JP162 F French Horn

The JP162 is a small wrap single F French Horn ideal for students and young players picking up the instrument for the first time. Specifically designed with smaller hands in mind, the instrument features a small wrap design ensuring it is lightweight and easy to hold. The design of the JP162 is tailored to ensure a durable instrument geared towards younger musicians and first time players with the inclusion of neoprene valves bumpers and adjustable duck's feet / finger ring. This also ensures versatility of the instrument within schools and music services. The JP162 has been well regarded in the industry and comes recommended by Mike Thompson, an International French Horn soloist who described it as "delightful from the word go, a total thumbs up".

The JP162 F French Horn is constructed from yellow brass throughout and is configured in a small wrap F design. The instrument also includes a number of high quality components usually reserved for more expensive French Horns including a mechanical (ball & socket) linkage, neoprene valve bumpers and an adjustable ducks foot / finger ring. These features ensure the instrument is suitable for younger players without affecting the quality of the instrument's performance and are the reason the instrument has become so popular with the UK education sector.

    "Having been impressed with the original JP161 and JP162 I was keen to try out the new versions which have had a total redesign. They did not disappoint… the build feels even more solid, valves are good and not prone to stick if not used (a problem with many beginner instruments). The newly designed ducks foot and adjustable finger hook are a much better design, making it easy to find a comfortable hand position to suit any size hand. They also stay fixed on the instrument rather than having to be removed to fit in the case.

    The instruments themselves blow very freely with a clear resonant sound. They are capable of producing a lovely even sound across the range. The high and low registers are both much improved on this new model.

    If you thought the original instruments were good these are even better and for such an incredible price! They even come with a respectable lightweight backpack-style case which has reflector strips on it.

    Either the JP161/JP162 would make an excellent choice for any beginner."
