Designed especially with the aim of ensuring a smooth learning experience for players of all ages, the JP191 MKII builds on the ethos of JP to encourage the use of rarer instruments. With an impressive intonation and quality of tone, the JP191 MKII performs far better than many others in the same price bracket. As recommended by Lyndon Hilling (Bassoon Specialist & Head of Woodwind, Northamptonshire Music Service), the JP191 MKII features "an open hole at the top making them an ideal stepping stone for moving on to a full-sized instrument late".
