The JP173 provides a exceptionally high performance to cost ratio, offering a high component specification with an affordable price tag. A redesigned valve block using nylon valve guides and bottom sprung monel piston valves help keep the instrument in a smooth and free working order. The JP173 features a 0.504" bore and the large 8" bell aids sounds projection.
I am very pleased with this baritone. Having never played a brass instrument before I am now playing second baritone in a non contesting brass band and this instrument is excellent. The tone is lovely and I am so pleased I purchased it.
The JP173 is supplied in a sturdy case with backpack and shoulder straps, and an outer pocket perfect for sheet music. Also included is a JP 6BS mouthpiece, a bottle of Ultra Pure valve oil and a maintenance guide to help you keep your instrument in perfect order.
