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 sling ring also provides the opportunity to make the instrument even lighter with the use of the provided sling or harness.
The appearance of the JP045 has been enhanced with extra engraving, abalone pearls and a range of modern finishes.
The JP045 is supplied in a hard case which has D rings, John Packer JP6041 Alto Sax Eb Mouthpiece Black, cap, ligature, JP "Well slung" sling and reed.
