Product Description Header Image Information about John Packer Bb Tenor Sax (Black/Gold) - Model JP042B



Excellent instrument designed with the beginner in mind but capable of a high standard of play. Musically versatile with good tonal and dynamic characteristics. Supplied with back pack style case. High F#. Stunning performance level.

Although capable of a very high standard of play, these instruments are priced to be attractive in the starter player market. The mouthpiece that is supplied is fine to get a novice started, but an upgrade mouthpiece will allow the instrument to reach it's full potential. The Yamaha range of mouthpieces are a cost effective option and will offer a good improvement. A mid range or professional mouthpiece will lift the performance to the highest levels.

What the Experts Say

...quite frankly, blows all the other intermediate instruments clean out of the water. There is now no point buying anything else until you feel you are ready for your first professional standard hooter. No point. Even then, it will make a very useful spare! This tenor has a distinctive and very bright sound, ideal for cutting through in this context. Also, I felt that I had unrivalled access into the altissimo register, and I was able to play cleanly up to the F# above top F#. The lower harmonics especially felt very easy, and the top G# available here was the best I have ever had. On the quiet numbers, it was very easy to produce a bluesy subtone. The feel of the keywork was very positive, especially the low Eb/C and the left hand little finger stack, and the instrument felt proper. Unlike most budget instruments, it weighs the same as a real one, and its lacquer job leaves nothing to be desired. Pete Long - professional musician. Worked with Jools Holland, Sterephonics, Claire Teal and many other household names.
