The JP222 low C bass clarinet is designed to be an affordable option for established clarinet players looking to play the bass parts in concert bands or orchestras. It also allows players to possess their own instrument when the cost of more expensive wooden models cannot be justified with the amount of use they receive. 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 resin constructed body of the JP222 offers a lightweight instrument and the strong silver plated key-work makes it a reliable choice for the gigging musician.
The addition of having the full keywork to access to the low C is a very desirable feature that makes this instrument unusual. The playing spike provides added comfort and the accurate tuning scale is the grounding for a better performance.
