JP271SW Cornet Bb - Smith Watkins Lead Pipe


Brand John Packer

    The JP271SW builds on the offering of the JP171SW providing a higher specification offering that is increasingly popular with training bands and advanced students. Having been described as having a very free blowing feel, and a rich sound throughout the range, the JP271SW was the personal pick of Pete Collins (Principal Cornet in Thoresby Colliery Band and Musical Director of the Foresters Band) who also described it saying, "Whilst testing the instrument I was really impressed with the evenness of sound quality, and the ease of playing in the upper register."

    The JP271SW outperforms many more expensive instruments and is becoming extremely popular within training bands within the UK. John Packer Ltd have worked closely with internationally renowned trumpet and cornet designers and manufacturers Smith-Watkins and have worked personally with Dr Richard Smith to ensure that the JP271SW benefits from the prestige of Smith Watkins' instruments. An exclusive and specially designed Smith Watkins leadpipe was created for the cornet driving excellent articulation and sound projection. The JP271SW also features 1st and 3rd triggers, high tolerance monel valves and features a one piece bell, a professional feature for extra resonance.
