JP245 Eb Alto Saxophone

The JP245 is a well-made Eb Alto Saxophone which, through an extensive period of research and development, has achieved a level of performance usually reserved for instruments much more expensive. This new design JP instrument is solidly built and "has a very positive and crisp action and produces a well balanced spread of sound with a full bodied and defined lower register" (Read the whole Jazzwise Magazine review in the reviews tab below). The JP245 has garnered much praise from many experts within in the industry who have described it "extraordinarily good value for money" and as having "excellent Intonation and a dynamic range that is nothing short of remarkable for an instrument at this price point."

The high grade 80:20 brass construction of the JP245 contributes towards it's sound, especially at home within big band horn sections. The instrument also features many high specification elements such as an underslung 8ve mechanism, blue steel springs and a high F# and front F keys. Well crafted, the instrument is durable and robust with a fully ribbed construction and a double spine on B & C. Italian leather pads and resonator pads are equipped as standard.

  • Author: Jazzwise Review- Spring 2012
    "Every so often an instrument turns up on the test bench that really surprises us. . . . Solidly built, with some tasteful floral engraving that not only adorns the bell but also the upper body, the JP245 comes with indented mother of pearl style finger pieces and a top table and palm keys that are very similar in both size and shape to the Yamaha model. Blue springs are used throughout with metal reflectors and calf pads. A free and easy blower, the JP245 has a very positive and crisp action and produces a well balanced spread of sound with a full bodied and defined lower register - the altissimo also speaks nicely. I found the octave key particularly sweet and smooth and I appreciated the angle of the top F key - but that may well be down to my rather large digits! Intonation is excellent and the dynamic range is nothing short of remarkable for an instrument at this price point. Tonally the JP245 does not carry a unique voice, but it does have some bite and an interesting edge to the sound that would make it ideal for a big band horn section. Packed into a plush lined, compartmented, semi-solid zippered case with a sizeable zippered front pocket, grab handle, shoulder sling and a pocketed back harness, the JP245 is extraordinarily good value for money and comes highly recommended with a full 5 stars."
