Mid-price baritone with great sound and playability.
The Jupiter 462 is a three-valve Bb baritone horn with a lacquered brass body, a .512" bore and a 9.5" bell. It is a graceful, simple design whose focus is on tone and playability. This medium-priced instrument offers the rich sound a band or orchestra needs from its low brass. It's lightweight and easily played by students of the instrument, but is perfectly presentable in more professional environments. Includes mouthpiece and a quality wood frame case. The piston valves are made of stainless steel and are extremely resistant to corrosion. This horn is an excellent value, and in many cases has permitted school orchestras to expand their low brass sections. Upright bell.
