The JP041 is an extremely well built and honestly priced full size student alto sax. While cheaper saxophones can vary enormously in quality, this model has been tried and tested over many years and continues to be recommended by teachers as a favourite all round starter instrument.
Its build quality is excellent, and as with all John Packer outfits, it comes with a professional quality case - both important considerations when the instrument needs to survive the rigours of daily school life. With a characterful dynamic range and a mature tone, this saxophone is good enough to get the keen student through to grade 5 at least. The reliable response and free blowing experience should encourage young students to practise often, and there's no danger of them outgrowing the instrument thanks to the floating plate design, high F# and front F keys, and adjustable thumb rest.
The outfit includes everything you'll need to get started, and the sax is set up in our workshop before dispatch meaning it will be ready to play straight from the case.
