JP Smith Watkins 271SW Bb Cornet
The JP271SW builds on the offering of the JP171SW providing a higher specification option that is increasingly popular with training bands and advanced students. The instrument has been described as having a very free blowing feel, and a rich sound throughout the range. The JP271SW outperforms many more expensive instruments and is becoming extremely popular within training bands in the UK.
