John Packer Ltd – Woodwind & Brass Specialists

John Packer Musical Instruments

We are passionate about supporting music within schools and promoting the positive effect that playing an instrument can have on the development of young people. We have been a major supplier of instruments and accessories to the education sector in the UK for the last 40 years. With an emphasis on brass and woodwind we can supply instruments of all the mainstream makes and models, as well as one or two that are not; such as Cannonball, Stomvi, and Rath.

JP Musical Instruments are a dominant force in classrooms across the country. The instruments have a strong reputation for delivering durable and student friendly performance, with a competitive price-tag. We have easy and flexible arrangements to enable you to have instruments for Wider Opportunities, ensembles or individual players on a termly or short term basis. Our instrument hire scheme is probably the most parent-friendly and accessible in the UK and includes payments contributing to purchase and a VAT free option.
