The JP043CG Bb soprano saxophone is a curved bodied saxophone that is ideal for both learners or existing players looking for a second instrument at an affordable price. This saxophone is designed to take the player through the lower grades, provide an introduction into saxophone playing and allows players to explore the soprano sax solo, band and sax choir repertoire.
There are many features on the JP043 that are present on more professional models.
An underslung octave mechanism also improves instrument reliability whilst blue steel springs are rust resistant with better tension memory.
Italian leather pads create a great seal that translates into a fuller sound that is more responsive which lasts longer than conventional pads. Resonator pads also improves projection and gives the tone more depth.
The instrument also features front F, high F# and high G keys and a floating plate design for the little finger (left hand) cluster, this aids faster movement once players have become more 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 the provided sling.
