The JP172 MKIV Eb Tenor Horn has been developed extensively over recent years and now in its fourth generation boasts a fantastic level of performance at a student price. This durable instrument performs very well both in a student and training band setting and is not out of place competing with more expensive models from some of the widely renowned brass manufacturers. The top sprung monel valves give players confidence with their smooth and free action and the instrument's 4 water keys ensure maintenance is easy and straight forward.
The JP172MKIV is very free blowing and responsive with excellent intonation and has been described by Mark Armstrong (formerly of Grimethorpe, Fodens and Black Dyke Band) as having a "great feel that promotes reassurance and stability throughout."
The JP172 MKIV Eb Tenor Horn features a bore of .459" and a 8" bell for greater sound projection. Yellow Brass is used in construction throughout. A lyre box is also supplied as standard giving players everything that they need as they grow into musicians.
