Constructed of yellow brass throughout with the inclusion of a rose brass leadpipe, the JP175 easily offers players the mellow sound associated with flugel horns. The bottom sprung monel piston valves have a smooth and free action, and the 6" bell enables good sound projection.

I purchased this horn about 2 years ago and I must say that it had been an absolute blast to play. Tone. Intonation, reliability. All outstanding. The quality of the horn is also fantastic. No random faults like broken welding or missing pieces have happened. For a first flugel horn. You honesty cant go wrong. The mouthpiece that comes with the horn is also pretty good and it's nice of them to include it as well.
The JP175 is supplied with a sturdy case with backpack and shoulder straps, and an outer pocket perfect for sheet music, 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.
