We have been professionally servicing the needs of woodwind & brass players, of all stages and standards, throughout the UK for more than 30 years. The initial axiom of 'serve as you would be served' has remained a central theme. It is always our intention to act as a friendly catalyst to help a customer with a problem to become a customer without one.
Buying an instrument from us is like joining an exclusive club - it gives you access to all our resources and facilities: huge choice; a wealth of experience; an independent viewpoint; total technical back up and friendly, intelligent and efficient service.

All our shop staff are experienced musicians. Whatever the instrument, we have a specialist on site to help with advice and queries. Our repairers are also musicians who understand the nuances that performers require. They use their technical skills to make your instrument play just the way you want whether you are a professional soloist or an absolute novice. Some of the UK 's leading players come to us for servicing and repair work.
This expertise is at your disposal whenever you walk through our door or call us on the telephone and is part of our policy of ensuring that the customer has access to independent and informed opinion as well as a comprehensive range of instruments and accessories.
These high levels of skill have resulted in our involvement in design consultative work for such companies as Boosey & Hawkes, Schreiber, Trevor J. James & Co., and Yamaha.
Our vast selection includes high quality, professionally checked models from novice to professional. Furthermore, we always endeavor to keep a number of each model in stock to ensure that the customer truly has the greatest number of options from which to choose.
John Packer Ltd take their responsibility in minimising the impact of their activities on the environment very seriously. The UK operation does what it can to go beyond current statutory minimum requirements. There are always concerns about the environmental impact and working conditions of Far Eastern enterprise. We have worked closely with the suppliers of our own range to ensure that working conditions are among the best available. The pay structure is at the generous end of the national scale for factory work because we try to employ the best staff in order to maintain a quality advantage. This ensures good staff retention rates for the most skilled workers. Negative impact on the local area is further reduced through the use of modern machinery, innovatory work practices and processing materials.
