The JP122 model is perfect for musicians who want to expand their  musical repertoire into bass sections for concert bands, orchestras or clarinet ensembles. Light body and robust keys. Includes case and accessories.

Buying a low-priced clarinet rarely works well, but with the JP122 you can be sure they are well served. John Packer has made every effort to create a high quality, ruggedly built instrument suitable for musicians who need a broader range of wind instruments and students looking to broaden their musical repertoire.

JP122 has an ebonite body, a synthetic resin of a very resistant and durable plastic nature, widely used in wind instruments. Its tone is organic and engaging, as if it were a wooden instrument but without the risk of damage caused by changes in temperature and humidity. As a serious instrument, every care has been taken to ensure excellent resonance and projection.

The keys are silver and the JP122 comes with an adjustable support post to provide a comfortable playing position for the musician.

The tuning of this instrument is in B flat. Wagner took advantage of its gravity in several operas he composed, but it has gained over the decades a particular highlight beyond orchestral music.

In the twentieth century it was well incorporated into jazz bands, having been used by Benny Goodman in some of his plays. Eric Dolphy gave him particular attention and prominence as a solo instrument, exploring all its possibilities, an idea that was used by Bennie Maupin, who played him at Miles Davis' Bitches Brew.

The bass clarinet has also become a cornerstone of contemporary music with composers such as Steve Reich and Stockhausen using them in their compositions.

Anyone who has tried the JP122 says it has excellent intonation and fantastic sound, surprising for the low cost it has for this particular instrument. The merit is all from John Packer that has made it an attractive instrument for any musician who likes to explore other sounds.

The JP122 comes with a hard case to carry you safely and safely, plus a set of accessories for your maintenance.

With over 40 years in the market, John Packer is the English reference brand for wind instruments. Manufactured to a high quality standard, all John Packer instruments have a 3-year warranty that covers any production defects.
