The JP074 Bb Euphonium is constructed from yellow brass throughout and has the inclusion of a rose brass leadpipe providing a full, dark sound.
Featuring a .571" bore with a 11" bell plus an open wrap design which help the sound projection and support those students new to the instrument.
A thumb hook support gives younger players that added assistance, and it is comfortable to play and easy to hold for younger players.
The overall workmanship and general appearance of the JP074 is excellent. The instrument also ‘looks right’ unlike many other student models. It has very sturdy stays and a nice finish. Intonation is outstanding throughout the entire range as is the quality of sound. High F is particularly good which is better than most professional models. The case is superb, complete with wheels and a carrying straps which is ideal for younger players. The new JP background brass range offers exceptional value for money without a compromise in quality or playability and as well as being ideal for beginners, due to the cost, many more experienced players will be more than happy with the performance. They all come with a complete package including a high quality lightweight case which is constructed again to a high standard and offers exceptional transit protection and also a high quality mouthpiece. In my view they are simply fantastic.
The JP074 is supplied with a JP mouthpiece and a high quality lightweight case featuring wheels, YKK zips throughout and useful side storage pocket.
The case is well built and sturdy ensuring maximum protection for the instrument in all settings, whether in a school storage cupboard or being transported to and from lessons.
Popular with schools and music services, JP Musical Instruments understands the importance of a high quality case no matter whether the instrument within is of a student or professional level.
