What the Experts Say
"I think this is without doubt the best trumpet John Packer have produced to date and as far as student trumpets go, it is one of the best I’ve played. With a price of a little under £300 it seems to me to be good value for money and would be a suitable instrument to take pupils through from beginning, to a point at which they need to move onto a “pro” instrument."
Niall McEwen. Head of Brass, Hull Music Service
"John packer have introduced their new trumpet the JP251SW. It is very well built with a lot of attention to detail, including a solid locking third valve key ring and great water key operation. The instrument is very free blowing due to the addition of the Smith-Watkins lead pipe and all the higher register is much easier to control. The intonation over the range is clear and the usual notes that are flat are easily adjustable and pose no problems as my students have found out! This is not a student trumpet. It is as good as many trumpets five times the price. This is a newcomer to the market and ideal for both the student who needs a good instrument to develop and the parents who will appreciate the great price. A real bargain for a quality instrument."
