Designed in collaboration with Smith-Watkins, the JP351SWHW features a unique exclusively designed leadpipe to provide a powerful sound. Featuring a heavyweight bell offering a warmer sound and additional heavy top and bottom valve caps, the JP351SWHW offer a satisfying combination of balance and sound ideal for those big band moments.
To sum up this is an excellent instrument. The most important thing a trumpet player needs is a great sound. The second most important thing is accuracy. For the latter the JP351SW-HWS is set up beautifully. Regarding the sound, it has a strong, dense core which broadens into a warm rich sound and ultimately starts to fizz in the altissimo range. I'll happily endorse this trumpet.
The JP351SWHW is supplied in a JP851 Pro Double Trumpet case, and comes with a JP 5C mouthpiece, a bottle of Ultra Pure valve oil and a maintenance guide to help you keep your instrument in top playing order.
