The JP275SW was designed in collaboration with Smith-Watkins to ensure a high level of performance. Fitted with a specially designed Smith-Watkins leadpipe and a rose brass one piece bell, the JP275SW offers players that sought-after warm, mellow sound. Constructed from a high grade 80:20 brass, the JP275SW also features a trigger on the 3rd valve tuning slide to assist with tuning accuracy. The bottom sprung monel piston valves have a smooth action, and 3 water keys enable easy maintenance and cleaning of your instrument.
I was fortunate enough to play the JP275 in a professional production of 'Brassed Off' where it played like a dream every night, particularly for my solo. Lovely quick valve response, and a soft, mellow tone. Highly recommended.
It is a lovely instrument and served me very well in the show - I got rave reviews! So thanks for that!
The JP275SW is supplied in a JP853 Pro Flugel Horn case, with a John Packer 4BFL flugel horn Mouthpiece, Ultra Pure valve oil and a maintenance guide with advice to help keep your instrument in perfect order.
