Applications and Characteristics:

The combination of reliability, good performance and price of this instrument have made it very popular with higher level students, schools and training bands. The straightforward 3 valve, non-compensated design makes it lightweight and ideal for younger players. It compares very well against the more expensive student alternatives on the market.

Weight and Dimensions:

14kg 80x37x57cms (single)


"The overall workmanship and general appearance are both excellent. The instrument also 'looks right' unlike many other student models. It has very sturdy stays and a nice finish. Valve action is good but I would like to see softer felts. The alignment of the valve block is not ideal with the offset 2nd valve. 3 in line would give a better hand position.

Intonation is outstanding throughout the entire range as is the quality of sound. High F is particularly good which is better than most professional models. The case is superb complete with wheels and carrying straps which is ideal for younger players.


The new JP background brass range offers exceptional value for money without compromise in quality or playability and as well as being ideal for beginners due to the cost many more experienced players will be more than happy with the performance. They all come with a complete package including a high quality lightweight case which is constructed again to a high standard and offers exceptional transit protection and also a high quality mouthpiece and cleaning accessory package. In my view they are simply fantastic."
