So far So good

My 13 year old grandson just started sax lessons and so far, loves his new horn. I tried it out and was surprised at the deep, mellow tone. So far, I think this sax is great, and a great choice for a beginner.

Amazing customer service and Team

I love the new instrument. i love the customer service team they are amazing.


Fantastic playing and beautiful looking, high quality instrument. Easy to play for a beginner. Set up is very nice as received. Case and accessories are a great addition. This is a really nice rig! I had a few pre-purchase questions which were answered fully, quickly, and enthusiastically by JP staff. Overall an outstanding experience! I will defj itely buy instruments and accessories from JP in the future.

Beautiful instrument, fabulous sound.

The Jean Paul AS-400 Silver is an absolutely gorgeous sax and it sounds fantastic. It's been easy to get started playing on. I'm 63 and have minimal music knowledge, and have never played a woodwind other than a few mins 20 years ago on a clarinet. There is an unbelievable wealth of lessons online to get you started, and the case for the instrument is perfect to protect it. So far I've found no quality issues at all and it was nicely set up when I got it. Customer service answered a couple pre-purchase questions quickly and fully. Their enthusiasm was clear in their responses. Excellent overall experience and a fantastic sax at a very reasonable price.
