The JP271SW builds on the offering of the JP171SW by providing a higher specification option that is particularly popular with training bands and advanced students. This instrument is ideal for students looking for a good value step-up model that will support them through the mid to upper grades.
The JP271SW was designed in collaboration with professional brass manufacturers Smith-Watkins and features a number of unique Smith-Watkins components including an exclusive design leadpipe. The leadpipe has been designed to deliver a free blowing experience and to encourage a warm tone. This model is constructed from high grade 80:20 brass which delivers a warmer, brighter tone than the standard yellow brass as is commonly found in student cornets. In addition, a one-piece bell delivers extra resonance completing this models range of components that help to deliver an exception sound quality. The JP271SW also features 1st and 3rd valve slide triggers similar to professional models to assist with tuning. Finally, high tolerance monel valve for a quick and respose action round off this cornet's substantial offering.
