Over 250,000 JP instruments sold globally in over 50 countries - they’re doing something right. . .
This instrument clearly has a place in the education system and with training bands, and works well not only as a student model but also for the more ‘mature’ player looking for a lightweight tuba. Its performance is comparable with that of many more expensive mini tubas.
At only 31" high, the JP077S is surprisingly small for a tuba being easily comparable to a euphonium in size, however despite its smaller form factor it still performs well in line with other much more expensive (and larger) models. With a compact 12 3/4" bell, 2 water keys and reinforced bell ring, the instrument boasts all the expected components that one would expect from larger models.
