The JP221 is a completely redesigned student model Bb clarinet. It’s aimed primarily at young learners, but its sleek contemporary style and exceptional value for money has made it equally popular with advanced players.
The body is constructed from ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), the same durable plastic used to make pBones and Lego among many other things. This durable material feels and reacts just like wood, but is not affected by temperature or humidity. Even though ABS is slightly lighter than wood, the clarinet also includes a sling hook attached to the adjustable thumb rest making it suitable for very young children to play.
As with all John Packer outfits construction is solid, and the great attention to detail helps the instrument rival much pricier alternatives.
Because of their huge range, clarinets require precisely calculated shapes and measurements to find a suitable compromise between tuning and tone. As a student instrument, the JP221 is built to have the best possible intonation which it does with an astoundingly small effect on tone thanks to the recent redesign.
The outfit includes everything you'll need to get started including a John Packer mouthpiece, mouthpiece cap, ligature, reed, and high quality lightweight carry case.
All of our brass and woodwind instruments are set-up by our in-house technician prior to dispatch, which ensures that your instrument is ready to play straight from the box.
