"Being a studio musician who is regularly called for recording sessions in the jazz idiom, I recently used the new Jupiter 673N after I found myself booked for a record date requiring bass clarinet—an instrument that has yet to be explored to its full potential. As a saxophonist, the bass clarinet offers a great fit as a double in addition to exploring a new voice. The 673N provides a really full, vibrant tone. In particular, the upper register speaks well and blows more freely than many higher-priced horns." - Ralph Bowen, New York jazz musician and Associate Professor at Rutgers University
