John Packer will be launching two new instruments and have some very special deals at this weekend’s Butlins National Mineworkers Open Brass Band Festival in Skegness. Brass pro’s Steve, Liz and Anita will be at the John Packer stand showing for the first time the new JP173MKII baritone and, following on from the success of the JP231RATH .525 bore trombone, the new JP230RATH .500 Bore trombone. This trombone has just returned from the NAMM show in America where it received a fabulous reception. These instruments will be on display for anyone to try as well as other highly acclaimed JP instruments. Along with this, the shop also has some very special deals on with Besson and York instruments. As always, there will be mutes and mouthpieces, however, we will also have a very good selection of products from both Michael Rath and Smith Watkins. If you have not had the opportunity to try/see these highly sought after products then this weekend is your opportunity.
