Nuvo jSax in Black with Green Trim
“A fun educational tool”
The Nuvo jSax is great fun for people of all ages. A great 'next step' from the recorder, the choice of funky colours and small size are ideal for children. The fingering system is similar to that of a recorder, whilst the durable plastic reed is a great introduction to reed instruments.
Adults who struggle with the weight of a full saxophone benefit from its lightweight design.
The Nuvo jSax is a great addition to any learning environment, and certainly a crowd pleaser!
- Suitable for beginners of any age but ideal for young musicians from age 5 upwards
- Ultra-light construction, washable and durable
- Traditional saxophone fingering patterns which are directly transferable to a full size saxophone
- Curved neck and bell and adjustable thumb rest
- Includes moulded case, jSax fingering chart, 2x reeds, open hole key plugs and o-ring grease.
The Nuvo jSax brings the world of saxophone playing to a wider audience than ever! Young musicians can now start to play an instrument with traditional feel from an early age.
The jSax has a traditional fingering system and serves to enable newcomers to develop embouchure and tuning skills which will be directly transferable to a full size saxophone. The tone is surprisingly mellow, and therefore this instrument offers a lot of fun for both newcomers and established amateur saxophonists.
Following in the tradition established with other Nuvo instruments, the jSax is pitched in C (concert pitch). This makes integration into classroom music making very easy. The instrument has a fully chromatic range from middle C (C4) to G in the next octave up (G5).
Due to its design and construction, the jSax requires very little maintenance and is simple to clean - warm soapy water will do the trick in next to no time! Since the pads are synthetic, there is no risk of water damage, simply allow the instrument to drip dry before returning to its case. You can take your jSax with you wherever you go, they love camping, hiking, climbing and even swimming!
The jSax outfit is supplied with two synthetic reeds, strengths 1.5 and 2 which are great for getting started. In addition to Nuvo synthetic reeds, more experienced players may prefer to use traditional cane reeds - Eb clarinet size is a perfect fit. The standard jSax outfit includes moulded case and carry strap, and is supplied as the curved instrument. Some adults may find a straight option more comfortable, in which case the "Straighten your jSax" kit consists of a straight neck and bell to transform the curved instrument.
