John Packer - the man behind the company
Born in Somerset in 1951 John Packer took a keen interest in music from a very young age. Along with a talent for music, John is at his happiest when he’s busy.
Being both a musician and trained instrument maker and repairer, John has often consulted on the design of instruments from a number of major manufacturers including Yamaha, Boosey & Hawkes and Schreiber. John used his experience to create a multitude of features on the JP Musical Instruments range.
A successful businessman, grandparent and dog owner, John remains as committed to his company and family as he always has been. He loves a project and never turns down the opportunity to roll up his sleeves and get involved whether with instruments, building boats, or gardening. He has a loyal companion in retired greyhound Scarlett, who’s always by his side.
