Less Resistance - More Tone
This JFH1100R flugel horn is designed to provide you with a centred, precise tone - ideal for any musical setting. Similar to professional horns, the valves in the JFH1100R are crafted from monel. Monel is a nickel and copper alloy that is used by the majority of premium instruments. This is because monel valves are very dense and are more resistant to corrosion, meaning they won't flake and are less likely to seize up. Similar to other Jupiter instruments, the outer slides on the JTR1100RQ are made from nickel silver as they are resistant to corrosion
For an additional touch of luxury, the leadpipe, tuning slide are made from quality rose brass. Rose brass is popular among orchestral players for its ability to achieve much darker sounds than yellow brass can. This is because rose brass contains a higher amount of copper than yellow. To ensure you can always correct tuning, there is an adjustment trigger on the third valve which moves freely and effortlessly.
Jupiter's lightweight case offers a practical design that is easy to carry. Whether you're going to rehearsal, gigs, or concerts, this case will protect your horn from scratches and knocks. The dense case will keep your instrument looking, feeling, and sounding like new for longer. Also included is a mouthpiece so you can start playing straight away.
Jupiter's goal is to ensure every musician is happy with their Jupiter instrument. Even their student instruments offer outstanding quality, specially designed to assist you to progress as fast as possible. By working closely with teachers and professional musicians, Jupiter continues to find ways to improve their designs to ensure everyone can be comfortable with a Jupiter instrument.
Jupiter pride themselves on recently being ISO 9001 certified. Their promise to the planet has led them only to use environmentally-friendly ways of disposing of water. All Jupiter wind instruments are even built using lead-free solder! Unlike some other companies, Jupiter has a huge range of spare parts in stock.
