"Faced with a limited school budget, I spent a lot of time researching which instruments I should purchase. The John Packer JP221 clarinet met my two most important criteria - it’s fairly indestructible and it isn’t too expensive. When testing the clarinet, I was impressed by its open, clear tone and how free-blowing it is. It plays comfortably in tune and the sound projects nicely. The John Packer clarinet case has a suitably sized accessory pocket, and straps which mean it can be converted into a backpack. The clarinet itself has an ABS/wood-effect body and silver-plated key work that appears very shiny. The key work is ergonomically designed and fits agreeably under the fingers, which is really important for beginners. The JP221 is also very lightweight which is essential for the younger clarinetist. The thumb rest is adjustable and has a loop that a strap could be attached to. I did find that the thumb rest was very easy to unscrew and this did happen a few times when I was road-testing the clarinet. I think I would have preferred it to be a fixed thumb rest. On the whole, I was impressed with the quality of the instrument and would not hesitate to buy some more for my beginner pupils. The JP221 fulfils ALL the criteria I look for in a beginner instrument and I am confident that it would set a young clarinetist on the path to success."
