The instrument is supplied with a student friendly mouthpiece and responds well to the addition of a professional mouthpiece which will substantially increase its performance capacity.
The JP043 includes many components that would usually be reserved for instruments many times its price including an underslung 8ve mechanism for increased reliability, and front F, high F# and high G capabilities. Other high specification features include abalone pearl keys, blue steel springs for better tension and reduced rust and Italian leather pads with increased waterproofing. To ensure players don’t 'outgrow' the instrument quickly, the JP043 also features a floating plate design for little finger (left hand) cluster which greatly aids faster movement, an adjustable thumb rest to increase playing comfort and an adjustable back stop for easier adjustment. These features work together in order to provide students and professional alike a comfortable and stress free playing environment.
