JP251SW Trumpet Reviews
Jon Scott. Session player and lead trumpet with The Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra
"With the old Smith-Watkins safely ensconced in a heavy duty flight case which had served me well on a gruelling series of flights encompassing South-East Asia and the Antipodes, my first surprise of the day was to find that the aforementioned instrument was unusable having endured apparently, a sustained attack on a flight from Edinburgh to Exeter.
Although I needed it that evening I wasnt overly worried because several years ago my parents had relocated to Bradford-on-Tone a short drive from John Packer. This is where I beheld the trumpet, with third valve jammed halfway down and the third valve slide entering the socket at a jaunty angle. That was just for starters. He took it away for an assessment and Steve showed me to his stock with a view to hiring an instrument if need be.
Jon then tried a variety of instruments, the review of which we cannot publish in risk of offending other manufacturers. We fast-forward now to Jon trying a different trumpet.
It certainly looked pretty: a nice silver lacquer finish and rather attractive nacre valve tops. Gave it a go. It was very good. A lovely open free-blowing horn. Responsive. Especially so ascending into the high register. The slots were where youd expect them to be. It was beautifully set up.
Jon was then told that the trumpet he had tried was a JP251SW made in China.
My jaw hit the floor. You could pay £2,000 more for a trumpet that sounds and feels no better than this one does. Ive tried numerous trumpets from the Far East over the years, all purporting to be the next revelation. Everyone one would back up when you started to throw air down it. Not this one
Thank you Steve, I said, but I dont want to hire this trumpet. I want to endorse it."

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.
