John Packer JP041 Eb Alto Saxophone

Code: 101569

The JP041 Eb alto saxophone is ideal for beginners or for those wanting to source their own instrument at an affordable price. This saxophone is designed to take the player through the lower grades and provide an introduction into saxophone playing.     

Unique benefits

There are many features on the JP041 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. 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 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 a provided sling or harness.

The name Packer on any instrument, means excellence in construction. As with this instrument. This was played by a skilled friend. He could not believe that it could be improved, even with a dearer mouthpiece. When I - an amateur tried, everything just fell into place. It is the "friendliest" Sax I have ever played. Cannot go for a five until I try a different mouthpiece.
