MUSIC INFUSION chose JOHN PACKER (JP Musical Instruments) over ALL other Brass and Woodwind Instruments – & HERE'S WHY:

- Their quality and value are evident, as each model has been carefully developed by John Packer himself, ensuring only the BEST instruments bear his name.
- They offer a WIDE range of instruments for personal, group, and marching band performance.
- Popular with professional and amateur musicians alike, JOHN PACKER (JP Musical Instruments) has become a global brand - recognized in 45 countries.
The John Packer JP045 Eb Alto Saxophone is ideal for beginners or for those wanting to source their own instrument at an affordable price, as well as have many features that are present on more professional models.
There are many features on the JP045 that are present on more professional models, a fully ribbed construction and double spine on B & C keys provides additional strength.
An underslung octave mechanism also improves instrument reliability whilst blue steel springs are rust resistant with better tension memory.
Italian leather pads create a great seal that translates into a fuller sound that is more responsive which lasts longer than conventional pads.
The instrument also features High F# and Front F keys and a floating plate design for the little finger (left hand) cluster, this aids faster movement once players have become proficient.
An adjustable thumb rest allows a more natural and comfortable hand position to be achieved. A strap ring also provides the opportunity to make the instrument even lighter with the use of the provided basic strap.
The appearance of the JP045 has been enhanced with extra engraving and abalone pearl keywork.
This JP045S silver plate finish is more hard-wearing than gold lacquer, yet it will need frequent cleaning due to oxidization.
The JP045 includes a pocketed case which can facilitate either a shoulder strap or backpack straps for ease of transportation. Also included is a JP mouthpiece, cap, ligature, instrument strap, and reed.

"Frankly I'm stunned. It plays better than most saxes that cost ten times as much and outclasses anything else in a similar price range. I'll be using it tonight in "The Drowsy Chaperone" show in the west end. Tomorrow I'm recording some music for the new Dreamworks film called "Bee Movie" and on Sunday I'm playing in the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium. I shall be using the JP045 on each job and am looking forward to it - it's great!" (Jamie Talbot - Professional Musician, whose career has included work with Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Robbie Williams, Jamie Cullum, & Amy Winehouse.)
