The JP051 Bb Trumpet has become one of the main stays of trumpet tuition in the UK education system. It has set a high standard for durability and good performance at an accessible price. Comparing very favourably against many of the more expensive student instrument on the market, the development of the JP051 has been treated with equal importance as any other instrument in the JP range. The JP051 represents unparalleled quality and durability given its highly affordable cost and as such has become a favourite within music services and educational establishments the world over.
A medium/large large bore was chosen in the design of the JP051 Bb Trumpet to provide good resistance to younger players. The instrument also features an adjustable 3rd valve slide ring for improved comfort and ensures the player doesn’t outgrow the instrument. A rose brass leadpipe comes as standard supporting students and novices to achieve an encouraging sound. The inclusion of 2 waterkeys also helps those new to brass instruments to easily keep their instrument well maintained.
The JP051 Bb Trumpet is supplied with a JP601 mouthpiece and lightweight case. The case is well designed and attractively styled with eye catching colours and a reflective safety strap, backpack straps and a comfortable should strap come as standard. The case also includes a small storage pocket accessible for the outside of the case. This enables players to store small accessories and sheet music with their instrument.
Manufactured to a high quality standard as is expected with all JP Instruments, The JP051 Bb Trumpet is guaranteed for 12 months against faulty manufacturing or materials and is fully tested prior to sale.
