Packer 3+1 Euphonium

SKU: JP174

NEW John Packer Euphonium (3+1 or non-compensating)

We carry the lacquer horn in house.  You can order in lacquer or silver finish.


The JP174 is durable non-compensating Bb student euphonium popular with many within the UK education sector. Ideal for progressing players and those looking for a lightweight instrument for young players, the JP174 includes a 4th valve giving access to the lower notes without the extra weight of a fully compensating system.
