Offering a higher specification at a competitive price, the JP272 is an ideal choice for an amateur player looking for a reliable instrument with a fantastic performance to cost ratio. This model comes recommended by Mark Armstrong (formally of Grimethorpe, Fodens and Black Dyke Band).
Constructed from a high grade 80:20 brass and featuring a one piece 8″ bell, the JP272 boasts professional components normally only featured on top of the range instruments. The top sprung monel piston valves offer a smooth action and 4 water keys for easy maintenance. The JP272 is described by Mark Armstrong as «a professional standard instrument with an extremely economical price tag».
