John Packer JP222 Bb Bass Clarinet
This is a superb instrument giving an excellent tonal response across all registers but particularly in those tricky areas over the break. Ideal for schools and ensembles. Highly recommended.
Ideal for you if you are an established clarinet player looking for a bass clarinet for occasional use in your concert band/orchestra. You can justify the purchase as the resin construction makes this much more economical to buy than a wooden bass clarinet.
Leslie Craven, Principal Clarinettist in the Welsh National Opera highly recommends the JP222 and states that "I would certainly buy one – and I would be proud to play it".
The JP222 offers:
- Lightweight resin constructed body
- Strong silver plated key-work
- Reliable choice for gigging musician
- Full keywork to access to the low C, a very desirable feature
- Playing spike
- Accurate tuning scale
