  The large bore JP371SW cornet is up for grabs from John Packer

If you are looking for a bargain for your band room then John Packer has a limited number of excellent ex-demonstration JP model cornets available.


Models include the JP071 — a great beginner cornet that is a favourite within the UK education market.

Also available as an ex-demonstration JP271SW; super resonant with its one-piece bell and free-blowing owing to the Smith-Watkins designed leadpipe.

Finally, the large bore JP371SW (above) — also with a leadpipe designed by Richard Smith of Smith-Watkins. This is a remarkable instrument at its price, capable of a fully professional performance.
