The Jupiter 600L is a beginner through intermediate instrument. It should suffice for students all the way through their high school musical pursuits and into collegiate study. Its intonation is excellent, a common failing of many budget student horns. When an instrument doesn’t play with consistent intonation across the range of the instrument, students’ pitch sense does not develop as it should. The 600L is a superb choice for anyone embarking on a course of studying the trumpet.
It has a beautiful lacquered brass finish which not only protects the instrument from tarnish, it provides a charming sheen that promotes pride of ownership and a sense of commitment to the instrument. Music is inexorably associated with image, and especially in high school, a handsome instrument is far more likely to inspire practice and improvement.
The stainless steel pistons resist corrosion and are hardened to remain true and mechanically sound even after years of use. Other features include an adjustable third valve slide for proper intonation, a first valve thumb saddle for comfort and a wood-frame case.
