The JP257SW D/Eb trumpet is suitable for an orchestral player looking to expand their repertoire for the later grades or at a university level. This instrument is perfect for tackling the popular Haydn, Hummel and Neruda trumpet concertos. This model has also been a favourite with professional players looking for an affordable yet highly capable D/Eb trumpet.
Designed in collaboration with Dr Richard Smith of Smith-Watkins, the JP257SW offers the standard of intonation and playability that would be expected of professional models. An exclusive Smith-Watkins design leadpipe supports players to achieve a bold and rich sound. This instrumentâ€™s sound quality is further improved by its construction from high grade 80:20 brass throughout. Finally, monel valves provide a quick and smooth action. The JP257SW can easily and efficiently change pitch between D and Eb by simply swapping the main tuning and 3 valve slides with the extra 4 supplied.
