Because looking good is important too.
I’ve had this instrument around 4 months now and it’s falling apart. Some screws easily come out and have been lost when I march and now my cork needs to be replaced. The octave key’s pad has had to been super glued back into place twice.
The instrument does play really well when you buy a new mouthpiece, I got the Yamaha 5C and it’s sounded amazing since. If it wasn’t currently falling apart I’d love it.
Great tenor, great customer service. There was a slight delay in delivering. But I was always informed ok the status of the order.
I have no problems, it suits my needs, not gimmicky and not a toy
You may ask "What?!?!?! Is this guy for real? This is not a big name pro horn - and yet he says it is the "Best Tenor Saxophone Available Today!!" ?" YES!!!!
I have been playing the tenor saxophone for 35 years. I have play tested dozens of pro tenor saxophones (I used to work at a musical instrument shop), and I played on a Yamaha 62 for 3 years in high school and on a Selmer Super Action 80 for 27 years...and I was never fully satisfied with any of those saxophones even though they played great. I switched in 2021 to the Jean Paul 440 Tenor Sax - over two years ago now. And I LOVE IT!!
I play tested it again a few weeks ago against 4 top line, big name, pro tenor saxophones, and it played at the same level - if not better than - those saxophones.
Here is why I think it's better than a top-line, big name, pro tenor saxophone. I can play ANYTHING I want to on it - I can play mellow, low, slow and soft or higher, louder, and faster, and it responds exactly how I want it to. It feels great under my fingers and it is very free-blowing. I can get it to play brightly or darkly, depending on what I want. It is just as sturdy and well-built as any pro saxophone (if not more so). I have owned it for 2 plus years now, and I take really good care of it, and it plays just as well, if not better, then the first time I pulled it out of the case after it arrived in the mail. I plan on taking it to my service technician for its first general tune-up, and I am sure it will play even better then!
Here's the big catch....I purchased it when it was $500...today it is $900. Those other pro saxophones start at $3500-$4000 (if you get a good discount!!) and go clear up to $10,000+. Are they 4 to 10 times better than the Jean Paul 440. NO WAY! NOT EVEN CLOSE!! The Jean Paul 440 Tenor is the BEST TENOR SAXOPHONE AVAILABLE TODAY! It plays beautifully and with ease AND you don't have to sell a kidney or get a second mortgage to afford it!!
Thank you, Jean Paul!! I am and will be an advocate for Jean Paul saxophones for LIFE!!!
Musically Yours, Joe
