The JP173 MKII is a free blowing and durable Bb Baritone Horn perfect for students and training bands. A completely redesigned valve block has revolutionised this MKII version resulting in a more reliable instrument, vastly superior to many competitors within the same price bracket. Using nylon valve guides, perfectly aligned with a CNC cut channel, the new JP173 MKII valve block will give years of quiet and enjoyable service without the need for ongoing maintenance. A favourite amongst education authorities and music services, the JP173 MKII Bb Baritone Horn provides a exceptionally high performance to cost ratio providing a high component specification with an affordable price tag.

The JP173 MKII Bb Baritone Horn is constructed from attractive yellow brass throughout and features a large 8" bell for great sound projection and a .504" bore. 3 waterkeys and bottom sprung monel valves help keep the instrument in a smooth and free working order whilst other features such as the addition of a lyre box and bell ring give the instrument that professional feel.

The JP173 MKII is supplied with a well-designed and attractively styled lightweight case as well as a JP Mouthpiece. The case includes a large external storage pocket providing sufficient space for sheet music and accessories.

Manufactured to a high quality standard as is expected with all JP Instruments, the JP173 MKII Baritone Horn is guaranteed for 12 months against faulty manufacturing or materials and is fully tested prior to sale.
