This recommendation is further affirmed by Leslie Craven, Principal Clarinettist at the Welsh National Opera, who not only highly recommends the JP222 but expresses a personal endorsement, stating, "I would certainly buy one – and I would be proud to play it." This endorsement underscores the instrument's quality and appeal for discerning musicians in professional settings.
