Jupiter has been one of the most trusted and reliable manufacturers of wind instruments for decades and the JAS-500 is the newest version of their classic student alto saxophone. It is designed for players up to grade 5 level but, due to the excellent tone and response, will likely take the player a little further.
The saxophone's body and key work have been meticulously crafted using gold-lacquered brass which adds to the instrument's bright sound. Jupiter has included adjustable bumper felts in the key backs which help to improve the intonation and create an intuitive response. This model features an adjustable C#/Bb tilter and an adjustable thumb rest for extra comfort.
To enable the player to perform with optimum accuracy and more expression, the saxophone has been fitted with blue steel springs, which provide maximum precision. The sax’s bow has been re-designed to provide a full sound that is noticeably richer, and ultimately leads to a clearer tone across the lower register. This subtle alteration makes the lower notes easier to play and very accurate in pitching.
The JAS-500 is supplied with a quality student mouthpiece, cleaning accessories and players can choose between a sturdy Jupiter hard shell case or light weight soft case.
