Our Take:

"As for the Packer JP042 series Tenor sax - High quality instrument that packs a real punch in the competitive entry level tenor sax market. Great bang for the buck and an even sweeter deal when you combine this with your favourite mouthpiece. Geared up for the beginner, but this horn can muster an awesome sound you'd expect only on more expensive saxophones".
