I discovered John Packer instruments whilst searching for a decent student model trumpet for my son. Having bought a used one, I found it to play very well and with excellent build quality. I decided to put my faith in a JP cornet for myself despite never having tried one. The service by John Packer was amazing and the instrument arrived within 24 hours of my order. I found this cornet easy to blow in all registers, I found it particularly easy to control quiet playing in the low and mid registers and it blew freely up to F above top c without too much effort. The valves were nicely in tune and again it looks to be very well built. Very happy with this instrument.
The JP371SW is supplied in JP851 Pro Double Trumpet case, and an outer pocket perfect for sheet music. Also included is a JP 4B mouthpiece, a bottle of Ultra Pure valve oil and a maintenance guide with advice to help keep your instrument in perfect order.
