This clarinet benefits from having a rich warm sound generated by the ebonite body. The keywork is finished in a strong nickel plate which makes it an reliable instrument for both the gigging musician and teachers alike. The JP124 builds on from the JP125 by having a full set of keywork to allow note alternatives to be used as well as an extended range.
Have just bought the JP124 and think it is extremely free blowing. Ideal for a beginner but as a professional it also suits my needs. Have already tried it on "Billy Elliot" the musical [where I work] and find the intonation pretty good too. Will be perfect for Klezmer Music. A very good value for money instrument.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a C clarinet that I would only use once in a while, so I decided to try out the JP124. It's an easy clarinet to blow, has a good sound and intonation. Well worth trying.
Included as part of the outfit is a standard JP student mouthpiece which is responsive and free-blowing. The fabric case is compact and is pocketed in order to store small accessories. Also included is a pull-through in order to maintain the clarinet at home.
Once more Pete Long gives an enlightening demonstration on the JP124 C clarinet. No transposition, lots of accessible music and a lovely perky noise!
