“Having tested the new John Packer shortreach bassoon, I was delighted by its design, intonation and quality of tone - so much so that I immediately ordered 10 for use in primary schools in Northamptonshire. The keywork is well designed, lies comfortably under a small hand and appears to be robustly constructed. They are free blowing and produce a tone comparable with instruments costing twice as much.” Lyndon Hilling. Bassoon specialist & retired head of woodwind, Northamptonshire Music Service UK
