Student Saxophone in various finishes
SKU: 74c87736b731 Categories: , , , Tag:



This excellent instrument is designed with the beginner in mind but capable of a high standard of play. Musically versatile, it has good tonal and dynamic characteristics and is supplied with a backpack style case and JP mouthpiece. 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.

The JP042 Bb Tenor Saxophone is supplied with a variety of accessories to help players get started. A robust hard case is included as standard. The instrument also includes a JP5C Mouthpiece and suitable sling to aid comfort and to increase playing time.
