My granddaughter really happy with it. A vast improvement over her old clarinet she says
I appreciate the heads up on the new mouthpiece product!
And I've completed the 2 TS-X4s purchase process.
Thanks again for the assistance in helping me complete my puchase.
I worked on playing Alto for 10 years off and on. I just never felt I was progressing. So, I stopped playing and practicing regularly.
I just wasn't feeling it. So, I certainly wasn't playing worth 2 cents. So, I figured I go tenor sax. Music is one of my great passions. I really love your company's work! I appreciate your company helping me continue toward my goal of being a more passionateTenor Saxophonest, through your advice, products and services, I sound better playing now, then I ever did. And I keep getting better and feel more encouraged then I've ever felt since I started back playing, seriously, almost one year ago in October 2020.
Anyway, thank you Jean Paul, for all you do.
Have this for one week. It is one of the best saxophone based on this price. With mother of pearl and blue stainless needle. Both of pearl and blue stainless are standard on Yamaha 62 and above. But Jean Paul made them on TS 400. A great value with great sound.
I now have an alto, tenor and soprano from Jean Paul. Could not be happier with the purchases.
Gave it to a friend who has played trumpet for years and he really liked it, it was even really easy for someone like me, who never played trumpet, to pick up and learn.
I just bought a 2nd one because it's just that good. The upgraded mouthpiece has been wonderful for both of my sons, which came standard with the silver package. It has allowed them to focus more on the keys instead of struggling with trying to blow. (Beginners that quit usually do so because they can't blow well and then get discourage.) This mouthpiece has allowed them to play confidently from the very start and has made all of the difference.
The sax itself sounds beautiful and has a nice, rich tone. It also looks beautiful with its silver plating and mother-of-pearl keys, which really makes it stand out.
My daughter has been playing trumpet for around four years now. She is in a homeschool band that is hosted by a local private college. That got her invited into a local public school honor band for high school students. I believe ten different schools were invited, and out of that, there were twelve trumpet players that included students up to twelfth grade. Using the $199 base model trumpet, she got first chair over all the other trumpet players! She is only in ninth grade (and has braces, lol!). She is a fantastic player, but even with that, it shows this trumpet isn't overhyped. A professional world-class trumpet player (He has a doctorate in music, and I found out some of his recorded music is now the standard other players are compared to) was the trumpet judge for this competition, and he picked this trumpet and player over the others using more expensive instruments.
I also play trumpet, and I use a King Silverstar that retails around $1700. I prefer hers to mine, and I am looking at the professional Jean-Paul trumpet for both us now.
The trumpet has never given us any trouble, and the valves and slides have worked great. The band director that auditioned her played this instrument (he owns an old Bach trumpet he uses professionally), and commented the intonation is good all the way into the higher register. It was also better than another F Schmidt trumpet we were auditioning as an upgrade (Supposedly a $2k trumpet that compares to Bach's, but there is no way). He didn't care for my King trumpet either when he tried it, lol! :)
Don't let the name throw you off. Quality doesn't require a lot of brand recognition or markup. Good job Jean-Paul!
This saxophone can play in tune with no issues, and didn’t have any pads with leaks. It had two sticky pads but I was able to easily fix that. The case is high quality and the saxophone doesn’t move around when in the case. I’m very happy with my purchase.
Nice saxo to start with.
The horn is excellent, plays great out the case needs no repairs!!!!!! I’m going to buy another!
I ordered my horn through Amazon. It arrived quickly. Out of the box the 2nd valve was stuck almost solid, the 1st and 3rd valves were very slow. I tried oiling them; the 1st and 3rd valves were better, but the 2nd was still stuck.
I immediately sent this one back to Amazon for a REPLACEMENT. I liked the look and feel of this horn, so was hoping for a better one.
The new one arrived two days later. I've been playing it for over a month now without any trouble what-so-ever. Valves are smooth and responsive, and the tone is remarkable. I recommend the Jean Paul Trumpets to anyone that wants a superior instrument at a very reasonable price.
Beautiful trumpet. Great sound. I made the right choice!
The Care Kit that came with the AS-400 Alto Saxophone is great! The only thing I needed to buy after I received it was a Sax Stand. Being a newcomer to the Sax world, it never crossed my mind until it arrived. I love the Horn and taking care of it is priority #1.
