Jupiter SAS 767 Intermediate Alto Saxophone. You are viewing a Jupiter 767 alto saxophone. The 7-series Jupiter is an intermediate level sax, aimed at higher-level players taking the higher grades. They have a number of improvements over student saxes, and are not to be confused with the cheaper 500-series, which, although still very good, are made in China and aimed at the beginner, and will need upgrading as the higher grades are reached. Jupiter saxophones are made by Jupiter - they are not cheap Chinese instruments churned out of large factories and stamped with any brand that pays - and Jupiter make very good instruments for beginners up to pros.
They are recommended by teachers all over as good quality, sturdy saxophones with a great sound and good intonation. As a sax teacher myself, I've been recommending them for years, as have many other of my colleagues in the teaching and repairing fields. This particular instrument is in great condition, with most of the gold lacquer intact and no dents to the body It has been cleaned, oiled and regulated, and is ready to play.Additionally, it comes with an original Jupiter hard box case, a mouthpiece, and a new reed. Overall, this sax represents a great opportunity to get an instrument that will take you all the way from beginner to university level, without having to upgrade, at a student model price. You can see and hear this actual saxophone in action here..... The ONLY brands I would recommend to my pupils are Yamaha, Jupiter and Trevor James.
Yamahas are great instruments, but much more expensive, and, in my opinion (and many others' too), sadly, suffering from a degrade in quality over the last few years. It is a fallacy that "it will do for a beginner", as when you start, you need all the help you can get! Cheaper models are hard to play in tune, some are not ergonomically designed, so keys can be awkward and sometimes impossible to reach smoothly, they have an inferior sound, and are often made of very soft metal, making them unplayable after even slight knocks or mishandling. Anyway, I hope all that helps. This item is in the category "Musical Instruments & DJ Equipment\Wind & Woodwind\Band & Orchestral\Saxophones".
