"Over the last few years we have put a lot of energy into creating a range of products that are good value for money, reliable and relevant to the needs of pupils and teachers alike. The JP045 (available in gold lacquer (JP045G), silver-plate (JP045S), black with gold keywork (045B), black with silver keywork (045BS), Vintage (045V), Antique (045A) and rose brass (045R) range are regularly played by some of the best players in the UK.
The same can also be said of the JP tenor sax (JP042) and soprano sax (JP043) ranges, both of which are available in the same finishes as above . These are instruments at student prices which are fully capable of a professional level of performance.
The baritone sax range consists of the JP044 and the JP144 Cadence. The JP044 is a good workhorse and will acquit itself well in the hands of a student at school up to the good amateur or semi pro player. The Cadence is more of a thoroughbred and, once again, regularly finds itself in professional hands being played at the highest level.
Although the instruments are supplied with a standard mouthpiece, like any saxophone, they can benefit from being customised with an upgrade mouthpiece. We offer a range of JP mouthpieces designed to compliment all of the JP saxes. The sophisticated design gives benefits to the tonal and dynamic range as well as a more immediate response.
We are exceptionally proud of our saxophones; they have toured with Jools Hollands, Take That and Seal - not bad credentials!"
"The sound on the JP 045 Alto Saxophones is crystal clear, bang in tune and terrifyingly easy to play – harmonics fly out with such ease that you'd think there was a small motor in there!
I road tested the instrument in two big bands and a theatre pit in the West End. It did everything required of it so efficiently and beautifully that my fellow saxophone players on the gigs thought I was playing some new "Custom" instrument worth at least ten times the price.
These new Chinese horns are re-defining how we go to work. Never before has it been possible to play to a full professional level on anything other than a "professional" standard instrument."
-- Peter Long
"I've just received the JP 045 Alto and have been putting it through it's paces. Frankly I'm stunned. It outclasses anything else in a similar price range. I shall be using it tonight in "The Drowsy Chaperone" show in the west end. Tomorrow I'm recording some music for the new Dreamworks film called "Bee Movie" and on Sunday I'm playing in the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium.
I shall be using the JP 045 on each job and am looking forward to it - it's great!"
