John Packer JP377 comp Eb tuba performances

Postby bloke » Sun Jun 17, 2018 11:16 am

These sound files were sent to me by a very young and very talented military bandsman to whom I sold a JP377 compensating Eb tuba - along with a "thanks for selling it to me" note. It's the only compensating Eb tuba I've played that's made in China and is truly first-world quality in every respect. Though I sell these (so you should weigh in that extreme bias) I have sincerely stated that I actually prefer these to the German-made Besson instruments.

As I wasn't given permission to share the link, I'll allow the artist to chose whether-or-not to "own" these performances, and make themselves known...but I believe they should, as the performances are remarkably fine.

The more I play the JP377 instruments - and the more I hear them played by others - the more I strongly consider picking one up for my own use. (eek!) Eventually, I might have to eventually sell my two-bells Besson. :shock:

...and yeah...I'd love to sell you a JP377. The instrument is amazing, and even the case is amazing. No, I can't match the price of compensating Eb tubas made in other Chinese factories (c. $1600 - $3100...depending on who's selling them), but - well - I personally wouldn't be interested in owning one of those, anyway.

JP377 performance sound files emailed to me

I would encourage the recitalist to post below and claim his recordings...
They're really quite nice...

I had the opportunity to perform at a local community recital on Friday evening with my JP EEb tuba that was purchased from Joe. Over the past year, I have really enjoyed playing this tuba. I hope that these recordings are helpful and I apologize for the “clams.”

' am seriously toying with getting myself one...but I'd need to pretty up my two-bells Besson and sell it, first.
