The Jupiter ¾ 376L has quietly entered the education scene as a solution for schools wanting to expand their lower brass programs. It fills a long identified need for a low cost 4 valve Eb tuba that is built strong enough to withstand a school environment and plays well so students aren’t fighting the instrument.The Jupiter 376L has four piston valves – three on top and one on the side and for a non compensating tuba, has excellent intonation. The bottom register speaks freely and overall is quite a nimble student instrument. Like many instruments in the Jupiter range this tuba has some well thought out features such as a detachable valve section for easy dent removal and cleaning and a specially shaped rose brass lead-pipe that assists junior players with a good playing position. The build quality and materials are more than acceptable for the price of the instrument and should stand up to many years of service in a school environment. The smaller, lighter body of the tuba will make this instrument popular with young players. The case is a strong hard moulded plastic with wheels fitted for easy transport and has a small cubby hole for accessories. The instrument is supplied with a 24AW mouthpiece and accessories such as polishing cloth and valve oil. Jupiter instruments are backed by a three year manufacturer’s warranty.
